This Galaxy S21 guide explains what widgets on Galaxy S21 are, how to add widgets to the Galaxy S21 Home screen, how to resize and customize widgets on Galaxy S21.
What are widgets on Galaxy S21?
Some Galaxy S21 owners may think widgets are something new because Apple only added home screen widgets to iOS 14 last year.
In fact, widgets are a built-in feature in Android. Android users have used widgets since Android Cupcake (Android 1.5) in 2009. In other words, iPhone users are 11 years behind Android users in terms of using widgets on the home screen.
So, what are widgets on Galaxy S21 (and Android)?
Most apps offer many functions and features. But most users may often use only a few features or access some specific data. If you have to open these apps, then navigate to the feature or check the data, you may find it is tedious.
Widgets solve this issue.
