    I'm having the same problem with many of my widgets, but not all. I have a Note 3. The weather.com widget is still working and another small widget is updating. But the Calendar widget, Samsung's S Health widget, and DGT GTD widget aren't updating. This just started a couple of weeks ago. Tried restarted and the widgets updated, but only for a little while.

    The widgets come on the phone :P deleting them and re-placing them on home screen does not help at all. actually sometime nothing is applied to homescreen. its retarded. my clock is always stuck for hours and hours then suddenly it will be right but then stuck at that time the next 4 hours or so. im getting fed up. annoying that this is happening to others too.

    Here's a doozie - moved on from the accursed Note 3 to a HTC that was fine. Then on to a OnePlusOne which was also fine with widgets.

    last night went to bed without plugging phone in for recharge. In morning charged it and switched it on.

    Widgets busted. Exact same problem. Nothing updates. The widget for my aCalendar app reads '0' which is a date you don't often see.

    Went looking for an answer, found myself back in this forum!

    Hey ho. Think we're all f**ked on this one.

    Here's what I did (also have a Note 3 with the widgets busted):

    1. Used the "Active Apps" widget (one of the only ones that still worked) to find my way into the RAM and cleared it all (multiple times; kept hitting clear for the heck of it))
    2. Restarted the phone

    The widgets seem to be working (just tried the calendar one and gmail one; both worked). Only time will tell if this is a more permanent fix or not. My RAM was indeed rather high in usage, so hopefully this fixes it...

    I think it was mentioned earlier, but I tried turning off auto updates in the Play Store app and that seems to be working to keep the widgets updated.

    This is what worked for me.

    1. Boot up in SAFE MODE. (Hold the Power and Vol button Down)
    2. Reboot from home screen
    3. Reboot again in full user mode
    (You should see many missing widgets when you are back)
    4. Reload your widgets one by one. and reboot again
    5. enjoy

    This is a temporary 'Fix'. Apparently, this process clears stuck widgets and or cached widget.

    The issue seems more common on samsung galaxy Note3's, and in all my testing
    I have not determined if this is a third party app, OS, hardware, related issue. All signs
    point to a OS or Third Party issue.

    Same with my Note 8. This is so widespread I can't believe Google/Android has not addressed it. Been going on for sometime now. As someone posted I don't think one widget is causing the others to freeze in this case. I deleted all, restarted phone clear cache etc and add one at a time. With one or two exceptions any one widget still freezes given time.

    I hope people find this post. I have fixed the freezing widget problem on my note 8 using an aftermarket launcher.
    First a tip though not what fixed it permanently.. Not see if a widget is causing a problem, and not only the program itself where the widget comes from, but if you have a Key downloaded for that program delete and replace that also. One problem I had was the Key for Sound Profile, it got corrupted.

    What ended up fixing my problem is turning off everything for Samsung Touchwiz, on the Note 8 called Samsung Experience Home. Turn off notifications for it, turn off any permissions, and be sure to turn off that is can change the system. Then Force Stop, delete cache, then restart the phone. Note I did not have to delete the data.
    The widgets were freezing because the built in launcher was trying to take control. It's been days now and no more freezing, before it was random several times a day. In fact everything seems smoother and faster.

    I had the same problem on my galaxy S8. The fix for me was simple. In the settings in the Zooper app there is a location settings. I had it changed by a hand location. Widget wasn't updating time and date. It was only updating on hand update widget and by rebooting phone.

    I selected auto location and problem is gone now for over a month.

    Try going to installed apps in Settings.
    Search for that app\widget name.
    Hope this works
