Google tests new "Weather shortcut" for some users

Some time ago Google introduced a new weather info screen (which isn't already live for everyone too) with a cool material design interface.

Now Google goes a step further. If you are one of the lucky guys, you may see something like this:

nexus2cee_screenshot_20160315-120201-1

There you have to select “Add” and it puts a shortcut on your home screen that looks like this:

nexus2cee_16-2

This is quite a cool addition if you use Google to get your daily / weekly forecast via Google.

If you want to test, if you can have this shortcut to, just type “weather” in the search field. Unfortunately there's no way, how to force enable this feature.
