Google is bringing the same ease of use as Jetpack Compose for UI the new solution for widgets, with the introduction of Jetpack Glance Alpha.

Jetpack Glance structure

Jetpack Glance allows app developers to create widgets with similar declarative Kotlin-based APIs as Jetpack Compose. This first alpha build includes an initial set of Glance Composables (Box, Row, Column, Text, Button, Image, etc.), a few predefined actions (actionStartActivity, actionRunCallback, etc.), and interoperability with existing RemoteViews.
