Widgets have been a mainstay feature on Google's Android since its inception in 2008. But Samsung's One UI 3 for Android 11 revamps some of the things you can do with these helpful tools.
At Samsung Unpacked, the company revealed new widgets for the lock screen that let you see more information without unlocking your phone, including screen time, Bixby Routines, along with weather, music and your calendar. You can also set these lock screen widgets to dark mode.
On your home screen, you can personalize your widgets down to size and level of transparency. Message notifications are grouped at the top for faster access, and you can flip between music apps.
One UI 3 is currently available on Samsung phones including the new Galaxy S21 line, the Galaxy S20 line, the Galaxy Note 20 line, the Z Fold2, the Z Flip, and the Note10, Fold and S10 series (though there are some differences in availability depending on market). It will reach Galaxy A devices in the first half of the year.
