Android news and weather widget not updating
There doesn't appear to be any other significant update just yet.-- Google's News & Weather app, AKA the "Genie" widget (after the APK name), has been more or less unchanged for years.IMHO, this should be addressed by Samsung and carriers ASAP. It will not work with a restart of the phone either.This happens even if the apps are allowed to auto start in the security settings.- install some app with informational widgets like e Weather HD, Widgetsoid or 3G Watchdog.- create and customize a widget - allow the app to autostart - restart the phone and use it normally for some time.
Is there an update that I haven't received yet or can I some how stop all the pop-up messages?
The new design does away with the black color scheme and features information displayed on white cards with high resolution weather images.
The tabs at the top have also been removed, and all weather and news information is displayed in a single vertically scrolling list.
Today Google has rolled out an unexpected update to an app that seemed long forgotten.
It's the News & Weather application that comes on Android phones running software maintained by Google like Nexus and Google Play Edition devices.
