My Verizon Update Brings Auto-Refresh Back to the Data Widget

Over the coming weeks, Verizon will push out an update to its “My Verizon” app for Android devices. The update doesn’t change the UI or offer a new experience, but it does bring back automatic refreshing to the app’s data widget. For those not familiar, Verizon broke the auto-refresh functionality of the widget shortly after the company introduced shared data plans in 2012. Users had to tap the widget in order to refresh their current data usage status. While not the most inconvenient change of all time, no one will argue with automatic.

Here we are almost two years later and the functionality has returned. Good job, dev team.

The new build is v10.0.615.
