One UI 4.0: How to add/customize widgets to Home Screen on Samsung Galaxy devices

One UI 4 Android 12 Widgets

With the approach of Android 12 and the Material You theme, it’s time to look at how you can add and customize widgets as well. No, it is not that the process has changed so badly. In fact, it should be accurate for most users. But, for those who need extra help, here is the guide here.

Here’s how to access widgets in One UI 4 Android 12

The process of adding widgets to your home screen has not changed much in the last few updates, and it is the same in Android 12. But that doesn’t mean the launcher won’t be helpful. Especially since Android 12, than ever before, it makes it possible to have themes integrated and customized with the widgets you add to your home screen. So let’s get into the water, first, on how to add, let’s get started.

  • Turn on your smartphone, navigate to the home screen or home screen page that you would like the widget to appear on.
  • Press and hold with one finger in a blank space inside the home screen page.
  • In the resulting menu, which may vary by location depending on the OEM of your smartphone, select “Widgets” or similar options.
  • Android 12 will show apps with online widgets in a single, animated column. Scroll to find a widget you would like to use. For example, we use the “Conversation” widget.
  • Select an app, which will expand the section showing the widgets available for the app. Some apps have multiple widgets that do a lot of things. Usually, that will include a description of what the widget does. Or the widget will define itself, based on the wording used in the widget. For example, the Conversation widget displays only one option, called “Chat.” The widget displays user-selected conversations.
  • Make sure the widget will fit on the home screen. Just below the widget title, the widget selector shows two numbers. In the case of Conversation, that is 3 x 1. This means that the widget takes up three horizontal spaces and one vertical.

  • After deciding on a widget, tap and hold the widget to retrieve it, then drag the widget to place it on your home screen. Some apps and widgets, if enough room is available, will automatically rearrange themselves to accommodate the new widget. Or, if there is no space, you will need to move the widget to another page by holding the widget to the left- or right of the screen.
  • Some widgets will display additional options. Our Chat widget displays a list of contacts whose conversations will appear in the widget. Some widgets may display completely different options such as colors, details to be displayed, and the shape of the widget. Choose the options that work best for setting up your home screen and your widget.
  • Your widget should now appear on the home screen where you set it.

Here’s how widgets can be customized

Now, it is important to note that not all widgets are customized. In fact, some widgets – even in Android 12 – cannot be resized. Although most can. Anyway, if you are looking to change something about the app widget after you put it on your home screen, this guide section is here to help you. As long as the app you work with supports it.

How to Resize Widget in Android 12

Select the widget added to your home screen by long pressing on the widget and then release it. As shown in the pictures below, we use two widgets to show the difference in the way the widgets display size-based information. For those who can be resized. The selected widget will display four interactive dots in the lines around the widget itself.

Tap, hold and drag any dot around the selected widget in any direction to resize the widgets. As shown in the pictures below, some widgets will display more or less information, depending on which direction you drag the edges.
