Customize Homescreen Widgets on Google Pixel 2 & 2 XL
The widgets on Google Pixel 2 & 2 XL homescreen can be customized easily with these three steps:

Add a Widget to the Homescreen
First off, you will need an empty space on your homescreen. So, find one and press it down for a while. The icons on the screen will start floating backward within a second, and you will see three options at the bottom of the display. Tap the Widget option to bring up the list of all the widgets. Decide on which one of these widgets you want to view at your homescreen. Place the widget on the empty space and lift your fingertip from the screen. Repeat the steps until you’ve got all your desired widgets on the homescreen.

Adjust the Widget Size
As your favorite widgets have now found their own space on your smartphone’s homescreen, you might wish to resize them, to suit your visual preferences.
In order to do this, simply long press on the widget. And when you see a white-colored box with dots around it, lift your fingertip. Now, move the dots left, right, up and down. When you have the size as per your wish, tap on an empty space on the screen to dismiss the box.
Move Widgets across Homescreens
In case your launcher offers you multiple homescreens, chances are you want to keep each of the widgets on a specific screen. All you need to do is simply press a widget for a moment and when it starts to float, take it to the edge of the screen. As the next screen slides in, lift your finger up and place it in your desired place.
