Could you probably see the weather widget on your friend’s smartphone screen? So, you yourself can bring such a widget to your desktop, which will show the current weather forecast. To do this, you need to connect to the Internet – otherwise where will the widget get data from? But how to install it on the desktop – in our article.
We immediately draw attention to the fact that a weather widget can be installed in your smartphone – it can be found in most firmware. This means that you only need to display the widget on the screen, and for this you need to get into the widget section. You can do this in various ways. For example, in one firmware you need to tap on the screen and hold your finger until a menu appears. In the other – make a pinch on the screen. Or both options at once. What does the menu look like? An example based on Samsung and One UI firmware. In the menu, select “Widgets”.
Next – Weather widgets.
Select the desired widget, click on it and hold until it is possible to transfer to the desktop.
Drag the widget and release your finger.
Tap on the cloud icon.
Allow the app to determine your location or add your current location yourself.
If the Internet is turned on, after receiving the location, the application will show the weather.

If you want to add weather to the main screen (unlock screen), you will need to install a third-party application. Which one? For example, Yandex.Weather has this feature. Installed using the Play Market with the same key.

By default, the application shows the temperature on the lock screen, and on some smartphones – precipitation.
In addition, weather information can be found in the quick access menu..
Which option to use? In our opinion, more than enough built-in weather widgets.
