    I had an area on the phone that showed available widgets. Now they are gone.

    Hi and welcome to AndroidCentral.

    What device do you have? What launcher are you using?

    For example I'm using Nova Launcher Prime. I don't have widgets listed with apps. To see what widgets I can install I have to long press an empty area on a home screen and then I'll see which widgets I can add.

    There used to be a tab with widgets after the apps tab, but it's gone now...I'm guessing that he's wondering where that went (as am I). Any reason why they removed it (or how to get it back)?

    They changed the way they are accessed on many models with the Android update. As Laura said, even without another launcher just long press on a blank area of a home screen.

    Yeah, I know...but I guess I just liked the old tab style. But it's no biggie since they're still easily accessible anyway.

    Hopefully the 99¢ sale will spread to other apps!

    Oh OK. Me too.
    but Google knows best

    However, my Moto G1 on 5.1 still had widget tabs. Then everyone kept talking about the Google Now launcher, especially in the blogs, like I should have it as standard and there was an improved version, so I downloaded Google Now and had been using it ever since.
    If I switch back to the Motorola launcher, whatever its called, that still has widget tabs.
    I think I'm right that most Samsung's do as well.
    If you can switch out of Google Now that might work, idk.
