When I reboot my phone, it updates the widgets one time, and that's that. For example, I have the widget for Google Fit on my home screen, and it is still showing the status from a couple of days ago; when I rebooted my phone.
I tried the Android N beta some time ago (I can't remember if the widgets updated then though). But I'm guessing the Android N beta has nothing to do with my problem? Are there some settings that I could have executed that froze my widgets?
The only thing that seemed to work was restarting the phone.
Well, I knew there had to be some type of culprit to blame for this behavior.
To resolve this issue, the app had to be moved back to the memory of the phone using these steps: Repeat these steps for any other apps you are experiencing the same issue with. You will have to clear the Home screen data and start fresh.
These steps will reset your icons on the Home screen back to defaults.
After recently purchasing Samsung’s new flagship smartphone the Galaxy S4, I have had a weird issue with some of my beloved weather widgets not updating.
I haven't found a single one that updates at the moment.
I have several widgets that should update regularly: chats, weather, Google Fit, call logs etc; and none of them is updating.
If you're using a device running Android 4.0, you must update your Android OS to use Keep widgets.
