With the new version of Android (Nougat), the lock screen display two shortcuts to two apps that can be launched quickly directly from this screen. By default, on the Canadian devices, Internet and Camera are the apps displayed. But it is possible to modify this setting and display your two favorites apps on the locks screen.
