Google Widget Missing In iOS 14 on iPhone

After the release of iOS 14, Google also added the Google Search app’s support for iOS 14 running iPhone. After installing iOS 14 on your iPhone, if you don’t find the Google widget in the list when you try to add it to the home screen, you may be using the older version of the app on your iPhone. To fix this, your first step should check for a new app on the App Store. So open the App Store, tap on your profile at the top right corner, and scroll down to the Google app to update.
Method 2: Reinstall the App
Sometimes even if you add the Google widget to the iOS 14 home screen, it may show “unable to load” within the widget. To make it work properly, you can delete the app entirely from your smartphone and install it again. This time it will work.
