    Hello everyone. So I'm completely new to android devices so bear with me. On my wife's Samsung Galaxy S5, it seems like the weather degrees on the lock screen does not update. Is there something possibly not turned on in the settings of this phone? Anyone experiencing this?

    Try changing the actual widget's settings. By default (at least on my phone), it's set to auto-update every 6 hours. You can bump this down to as often as every hour. Perhaps you just haven't noticed it updating on the lock screen because it does so so infrequently.

    Tap on the widget. Then from the menu select Settings. You'll see a refresh setting. I set mine to every hour.

    It's on the lock screen so touching it doesn't open it uo

    Add the widget to one of your home screens. There you will find the settings. After you are done, remove it and it should work as you intended.

    Do you have location toggled on? Also, disabling certain things like "unified daemon" will do that

    Have you tried setting up the widget from the lock screen?

    Mine works. I have location mode set to high accuracy. It's not really a widget like you would picture; it's a small icon and the temperature, just under the clock. It's so small it's hard to notice at first.

    Hmm have you power cycled or pulled your battery? Shouldn't have to on a new phone but it may work when all else fails. Also, are you using lockscreen security? I am on swipe to unlock.

    Did you go into settings, lockscreen, additional information, turn it on, then check weather...that's how I turned mine off.

    I've changed to all different lock types & power cycled, still no luck. Is there a way to select the default weather app or something?

    Nope-- there's not even a weather app you can access from the app drawer. I think the weather widget is part of TouchWiz-- if you tap on the weather widget on the default homescreen, it opens into weather but you'll notice it does not show up when you click on multi-tasking. It is however listed in the RAM manager, so I could be wrong. Either way, if you go into application manager it DOES show there. Have you gone there yet? If not, try force stopping, clearing data, and resetting defaults (if available, sounds like you haven't used a 3rd party app?)

    Sorry you're having so much trouble. What country and carrier are you using?

    Got it to work with AccuWeather finally somehow, it still works without location on and without AccuWeather updating. So I suspect it will always be 21 degrees...

    Does anyone have this working with a third party weather app like weather bug?

    Let me ask you this. If you do a long press on your home screen, and select widgets...and add the samsung weather widget that comes with the phone...what does it look like. I'm guessing it's "just a clock" for you. without the picture/weather portion shown.

    Figured it out. You actually need location on or the weather won't update on the lockscreen even though it does on the widget on the phone... kind of a useless feature because of that.

    If you don't have location on but your weather still updates on the widget...than your phone is magical and should consider selling it on ebay, lol.

    When I opened that remote control app for the first time, I could not get those controls off my lock screen to save my life, I ended up turning off the entire app.

    Where are you seeing Widget Options for the Lockscreen on the Galaxy S5?

    When I go into the Lockscreen Settings, all I see is Screen lock, Dual Clock, Clock Size, Show Date, Camera Shortcut, Owner Information, Unlock Effect, Additional information and Help Text...?

    Are you guys using a different settings menu? I don't see anything about Weather or any other widgets for the Lockscreen.
