Android digital clock widget not updating
So I got into the Android widget documentation to find out what made the widgets tick. So I found out, that one widget can actually block the updating of the other widgets. So by adding every widget seperately, with a lot of time in between, I could notice that the problem occurred after a while.The time in between was rather important, because if I did it immediately there was no problem.My hunch about Samsung’s Touchwiz interface proved to be true when I decided instead of restarting the phone to instead restart the Touchwiz application.After running a force stop on Touchwiz, my widget once again started responding to input AND updating. To get below: After killing Touch Wiz and then the system firing it back off, the widgets started to work again. After finding that the issue above keeps happening with all weather widgets I placed on home screen, I tried three of the big launcher replacements (Go Launcher, Nova Launcher, and Apex).(set from config screen)Widgets on Android work a bit differently than a normal application.Unlike regular programs they don't just install themselves in the application tray so you have to add them manually. Here's how to add a widget on your Android home screen. You’ll be presented with a list of all the installed Widgets on your Android device.4.I have all the latest version of the Android version for my phone, and have installed all security patches.Including the July security patch from a couple of days ago. I don't have any special applications running that should customize my battery behaviour (like Greenify). Make sure you're not using Greenify or some other app to hibernate your apps. I have been trying different launchers, and have have noticed that the problem still occured.
Many times the time displayed is running 10-15 minutes behind.
If you have an LG G4 and experience problems with widgets not updating after the recent update to Android version 6 (Marshmallow), please follow the steps below to wipe the cache and correct the problem.
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 have several widgets that should update regularly: chats, weather, Google Fit, call logs etc; and none of them is updating.
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.If less time is required, then Alarm Manager is the option.
