What is a widget?

Widgets are cards that are joined together in a horizontal feed. They appear under the SmartBox when you open a new tab.

The cards in your feed are collapsed by default and a short summary displays on them. If you swipe your feed to the left or tap any widget, all the cards will expand and display more detailed information.

The following widgets are available:
  • Weather (forecasts for the current day in your city)
  • News (the five main news stories and news from your city)
  • Traffic (road congestion and a traffic jam map)
  • Market quotes (dollar and euro exchange rates, oil prices)

By default, widgets are enabled in the browser.

Attention. When you you open a new tab in Incognito mode, widgets do not appear.
