Could you re examine the widgets selection screen? Some widgets don't show up such as lawnchair v2 launcher's widgets (get it from github, the play store release is very outdated). They however, show up on other launchers.

I'm on Google's Messages beta and they recently make the navbar transparent in the app even for Pie and below. Is there a chance you could do the same thing too?

The lawnchair "widget" as it shows up on the launcher is actually a shortcut and not a widget, so that's why my app won't recognize it. Shortcuts behave like app icons, which is a completely different implementation than widgets. There are however apps that allow you to create widgets that can launch a shortcut on tap. Try to Google it or if you know Tasker or KWGT, I believe it's also possible with those.

I could, but I try to follow Google's design advice. Below Q the buttons cannot change color based on the background like the do on Q and they'll be difficult to see. At least... that's what they told. I have no clue why Google doesn't follow their own advise though 😂. Apparently they even got to change the color of the button like on Q!
So yeah. I'll just follow what the guidelines say whenever they make up their mind haha

Edit: added screenshot. This is how it currently looks for me with pie gestures and transparent nav bar.

Below Q, the navbar buttons don't change color automatically. Devs have to specify if they want dark or light buttons. On Q, the system samples content behind the navigation handle and adjusts its color accordingly to maintain contrast.

You can specify in your app that you want the navigation buttons to be dark (for light mode at least). I think it would look way better than the current tinted navbar that we have in the latest release.

You are talking about the Actions shortcut but I meant the custom at a glance widget they have (or home widget)

Oh that one! I think it's lawnchair exclusive for some reason. It also doesn't appear on the Google Pixel launcher, so it's not a regular widget.

Right, I was just thinking about how on older versions of Android some apps could have a white navigation bar with dark buttons. But with a transparent nav bar that would result in just dark buttons! I'll try that!
