Add a Widget to the Home Screen on Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge
No need to open up the weather app to check the weather; just add a widget to your Home screen for easy access and updates on all your frequently used apps. The S7 and S7 edge comes with preloaded widgets, and you can download even more from the Google Play Store to spruce up your Home screen.
The available screens and settings may vary by wireless service provider and software version.
Add a Widget
Maybe you want to add the Calendar widget so all your appointments are at a glance. Follow these steps to add a widget to your home screen.
From any screen, you can make a pinching motion on the screen. Alternatively, you can touch and hold an empty area.
Touch and hold the desired widget.
Drag the widget to the Home screen and then release.
If the widget is resizable, you will see a frame around the widget. To adjust the size of the widget, touch and drag the edges of the frame.
When you are satisfied with the new size, release the widget, and then exit the edit mode by touching anywhere outside the widget.
To move the widget, you can simply touch and hold the widget, and then drag it to a new location.

When you want to make room for new widgets, simply remove a widget from appearing on your home screen. Here's how:
To remove the widget, touch and hold the widget until the edit screen appears.
While continuing to hold, drag the widget to Remove.
Removing the widget from the screen will not delete it from your device.
