The Google Discover feature has grown to be one of the most useful features for many Android users thanks to the customized newsfeed it offers.
Through this feature, Google suggests content for a user based on search activity and activity found on your device. It looks at web and application activity, location history, and location settings.

Needless to say, this feature has gotten really good over the years, and now, it is the easiest way to get a glance at what’s new, giving you what you need, even before you know you need it.
A nice little addition to Google Discover is the weather widget that shows users the current weather and temperature. However, there seems to be an issue with this feature.
According to some users of Google Discover, this widget’s temperature always shows in Fahrenheit (F). This, even after setting it to display in Celsius (C).
Don’t know why but in google discover in the top left corner the temperature is in Fahrenheit and after I push on it shows in Celsius ( as I actually want). I have set everything to Celsius and everywhere is in Celsius except there. How can I make that to be in Celsius also?
On my Google Pixel 4XL, on my home feed on the left, in the top left my weather shows the temperature in Fahrenheit! Everywhere else it shows it in Celsius but no matter what and where I switch every possible setting I’ve found, I’ve switched it to celsius but nothing works.
The Google Pixel 4 XL is among the many affected devices.
This issue seems to have dragged on for many months as reports from affected users go as far back as late 2020. Google seems to have heard the complaints of these users
Earlier this week, we saw a Google Product expert asking affected users to update their Google App from the Google Play Store as the issue should be fixed.
Hello, new news. Please make sure you have the Google app updated to the latest version. It should have been fixed.
Sadly, this doesn’t seem to have worked as affected users are still facing the same issue even on the latest Google app version 188.8.131.52.arm64.
Hi, yesterday I updated to version 184.108.40.206.arm64 through the Google Play Store and I don’t see that the problem has been fixed. I have no pending update.
With that, it is probably back to the drawing-board for Google as affected users continue to have to rack their brains or convert Fahrenheit to Celsius.
We shall continue to keep an eye on this and update as and when we get more info so stay tuned to PiunikaWeb.
