Android news and weather widget not updating
As a result, there have been quite a few applications ported over from the Galaxy S8 to older Samsung phones.
One of the more popular leaked apps is the updated widget, which was released to the public by developer Arpit Aggarwal.
While it might be hard to believe at times, your phone is not made of magic — when it comes down to it, your device is a computer. Once there, start by clearing the Google app's cache by tapping the "Clear cache" button at the top of the scree — this is the less aggressive of the two options. Google, but this time tap "Clear storage." Next, choose "Clear Google Search data," then tap "OK" on the popup.
Sometimes, the data and/or cache accumulated over time can become corrupt and throw a wrench in your phone's performance, i.e., the weather function. Do not tap "Clear All Data," as this will delete history and preferences on your Google account.
Everyone seems to have gone crazy for the new look Samsung is pushing out with Samsung Experience, the successor to Touch Wiz.To check, open Settings, then tap "Apps & notifications." Next, tap "See all X apps," find "Google," then select "Permissions." If the slider next to "Location" is not blue, tap it to enable the permission, then restart your phone to see if the weather shows up on your lock screen.Okay, so Google is allowed to use your location, but your lock screen still isn't showing the weather. Well, clearing the Google app's data and cache, of course.Aprit created a flashable ZIP for users with TWRP installed, but since the US variants of the S7 and S7 Edge don't have TWRP, we'll show you how to install and use the latest version of this stock Samsung app even without being rooted.To start off, you'll have to download the ZIP containing the APKs for the Galaxy S8 weather widget and app.
