Are Android widgets dying?

Are widgets dying? I've noticed that a lost of my favorite apps only have icon widgets which are more of shortcut launchers rather than widgets. For example, Google docs does not have a widget that lets us put a document on the home screen, but it does have a widget that lets us immediately go to the search bar.
Also, Google recently redesigned the Calendar app, but the widget seems to be the same. In the case of Google Keep, the only change was the font. And Google Tasks doesn't even have a widget! I was kind of surprised TBH.
Now, by widgets dying, I don't mean all widgets. Some widgets such as Time/Weather will always stay for sure right?
