Widget


A Widget is an interactive item that can be added to the Home screens of your device to give you quick access to information or tasks you perform frequently. For example, widgets can provide weather updates or notify you of upcoming calendar events. Your device comes with a variety of preloaded widgets that can be customized to fit your needs. You can download additional widgets from Google Play™ Store.
