Finally, I realized what was causing this was the selection Run > Edit Configurations > "Always install with package manager (disables deploy optimizations on Android 11 and later". This can be recreated in the JetNews example widget: https://github.com/android/compose-samples/tree/ee198110d8a7575da281de9bd0f84e91970468ca/JetNews by selecting "Always install with package manager", adding JetNews to the home screen and pressing the 'Run App' a second time. This selection is default to false, and I had been selecting it based on some earlier tutorials like this one about developing on Glance: https://medium.com/androiddevelopers/demystifying-jetpack-glance-for-app-widgets-8fbc7041955c https://proandroiddev.com/building-a-widget-using-jetpack-glance-59317dfbfe9 @Marcel Pinto Sorry to bother you, but just curious why you originally recommended this in your blog? I don't know what that option does, but it sounds like it installs it in a way closer to what would happen regularly for a user when the app is updated from Google Play?
