Galaxy S7: How do I add the widget Weather and Clock to the Home screen

Last Update date : Nov 23. 2020


A 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).

In 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. We are going to explain you how to add the Weather and Clock widget on the Home Screen on your Galaxy S7, so that it can look like your previous Samsung device.

Note: Screens and settings available may vary by wireless service provider and software version.
