    How do you add lock screen widgets on Lollipop 5.0? Mine have disappeared ever since updating to Lollipop 5.0. There is nothing in settings under lock screen or display that shows being able to have multiple widgets anymore.

    Lock screen widgets were practically removed after Lollipop. That's one of the biggest complaints about this update. Sorry

    I noticed there are some apps you can get from the Play Store but they are pretty much awful. I am shocked that Android wouldn't have left the lock screen widget option open. It makes no sense that they removed it. It was a great feature. If you did not like the idea of it, you simply did not use it, that simple.

    Hi Kevin, thanks for joining Android Central. Welcome to the forums.

    Yeah, I kind of agree with you. Personally never used lock screen widgets before but some people loved it. Most reviews I've read about third party apps doing that are very negative.

    They kept the one for the phone keypad on there which is good. For the others, I will just have to get used to reverting back to the extra steps. Oh well, there are worse things. (I guess things aren't too awful if your complaints consist of Android lock screen widgets!) I'm going to shut up now and go donate some money to people starving in Africa.
