Using the Weather widget on a Samsung Phone

Last Update date : Nov 23. 2020

No more wondering whether you should wear your rain boots or toss a pair of sunglasses in your bag. Since many of us check the weather each morning to prepare for the day ahead, it’s a good idea to add a Weather widget to your phone. That way, you can check the daily forecast right from your Home screen. 

 

Please Note: Screenshots were captured from a Galaxy S10 operating on Android OS Version 9.0 (Pie). Steps and settings available may vary depending on your Galaxy device and Android OS Version.

 

Most Galaxy devices now already have the weather widget available on the home screen however, if you have removed this widget or want to resposition your weather widget, check out our page How do I add Widgets? for step-by-step instructions.
