What are the Pokemon GO Buddy & Egg Widgets?

Pokemon GO’s new Widget feature is a feature that lets you easily track the progress of your Buddy as well as the eggs you’re hatching without even opening the app.

The Buddy Widget allows you to keep track of your progress towards earning Buddy Hearts. If you’re using the top tips to earn Buddy Hearts fast in Pokemon GO then you’ll have to be checking it pretty often!

Meanwhile, the Egg Widget lets you see how far you need to walk to hatch your next egg. No more checking every 5 minutes!

Although to make the most of these features, you’ll first need to enable Adventure sync in the game settings. Next, you’ll actually have to add the Widget to your phone.

As a loading bar glitch has stopped Pokemon GO players from logging in, these Widgets are especially useful now!
