Pokemon Go has some widgets that can help players track some of the most important information in real time. Here’s how to enable the Egg Hatching and other widgets from Pokemon Go on your iOS or Android device.

Pokemon Go offers widgets for players who want to stay up to date on their adventures even when they are not inside the game. Widgets are useful tools that users can add to their cellphone home screens to check information quickly and without having to open the main app.

Egg Hatching and walking with your buddy Pokemon are some of the things a trainer can do when they are not actively catching or defeating creatures out there. If you want to know how to enable some tools that will make all that passive wait in Pokemon Go easier, here’s all you need to know.

The Egg Hatching widget in Pokemon Go is a tool that players can add to their phone home screens to keep track of activities in the game, such as Egg status. You will be able to check your active Incubators and how far you need to watch for them to hatch.

Added to this feature, you can also use another widget to keep track of your Buddy Pokemon walking status, amount of Buddy Hearts, and more. These widgets help players check on some of the passive features of the game without having to open up the app.
