    Have a Nexus 5x using google launcher and widgets are not updating. Seems other people have this issue too but cannot seem to find the answer/solution here. Can someone give some insight on how to fix this or what is causing it?

    Have you already tried wiping the cache partition? See Phil's response here: http://forums.androidcentral.com/nex...-cache-5x.html

    Welcome to Android Central! Which widgets? All of them? Only certain ones?

    You haven't turned on Restrict Background Data for any apps, have you?

    I was the person that asked the question. I do not have any restrictions on background data for any apps. I am using Sol Calendar month display widget (at least until google calendar finally gets one), Google Keep (this seemed to use to work when before android updated to 6.0.1), I also have tried to use Mint widget (summary specifically) but it says problem refreshing once put on home screen.

    Im having the same issues. Sprint Lg G4 updated this weekend to android 6.0 and since then my 1w weather widget does not update the time or weather automatically anymore. Its annoying to say the least. Ill be interested to see what you two figure out.

    Ok so last night I cleared my cache partition and today they seem to be working. Previously the only way the widget would work again was resetting the phone so I will give it a few days before deeming the clear cache partition the fix for this. I will update in the coming days.

    Four days in and everything is all good. I would say clearing the cache partition is the go to fix here. Thanks B. Diddy!!
