Galaxy S7 - Add the Weather and Clock Widget to Your Home Screen (SM-G930W8)

Last Update Date : Feb 02. 2019

Widgets

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 (weather updates, calendar events and many others).

 

With the previous version of Android (Lollipop), you were used to have the Weather and Clock widget displayed on the main Home screen of your Samsung device. With the new version of Android (Marshmallow) this widget is not displayed by default on your Home Screen. Take the following steps to add the Weather and Clock widget on the Home Screen of your Galaxy S7, so it can look like your previous Samsung device.

The provided information refers to the devices sold in Canada. Screens and settings available may vary depending on your Canadian wireless service provider and your software version (Android 6.0 Marshmallow for this FAQ).
