Customize your Samsung Family Hub with apps, widgets, and wallpapers

A Family Hub fridge with the different widgets displayed

You can customize the Family Hub's Home screen and really make it yours. Add apps and widgets that best suit your family's needs, and remove the ones that don't. You can also select from a variety of widget sizes and even customize the screen's wallpaper. The more personal you make it, the more you'll get out of it.

Note: Samsung Family Hub refrigerators run on the Samsung Tizen OS, not the Android OS. Available screens and settings may vary by software version and model.

Add an app or widget to the Home screen

The main difference between apps and widgets is that apps are displayed as regular icons while widgets are displayed as interactive windows. Whichever one you prefer, you can easily add them to the Family Hub.

Just tap the Apps icon to see all of the Hub's available apps. Next, touch and hold the app you want to add to the home screen.

A popup menu will appear; you can either tap Add to Home to create an app icon, or tap Add Widget. If you chose Add Widget, select the widget's size. Once the app or widget is added to the Home screen, touch and hold it, and then drag it to your desired location.

Note: Samsung pushes new apps and existing app updates automatically usually every 2 to 3 months. You'll be notified of updates whenever they're available and can defer them if desired.

Rearrange apps and widgets

Just like on a phone, you can move around apps and widgets on the Family Hub's Home screen. Customize your apps and widgets, so you'll always know where everything is located.

To move apps or widgets, touch and hold your desired item, and then drag and drop it to its new location. You can place apps or widgets almost anywhere on a Home screen as long as there's an empty space. App icons are all the same size, but you may need to resize a widget if it doesn't fit in a vacant spot.

Remove an app, widget, or Home screen

Except for the Apps icon, you can remove any app or widget from the Home screen. You can also remove entire Home screen pages, you only have to keep one (just like your smart phone).

To delete an app or widget, touch and hold your desired one. Then, tap Delete.

To delete a Home screen page, touch and hold an empty space, and then tap the Delete icon in the page's top right corner.

Customize your wallpaper

The Family Hub is already the centerpiece of your kitchen, so why not make it even more eye-catching by adding a custom wallpaper?

Tap Settings, tap Display, and then tap Home screen wallpaper. Tap Wallpaper to see preloaded wallpapers, or tap Photos to select an image from your Gallery. Once you've chosen a wallpaper, tap Done.
