Samsung is always ahead in bringing new features to Galaxy devices, which gives a whole new set of features to its users. This has all become possible because of its great planning in introducing the One UI skin for Galaxy devices. In the last few years, the company’s focus has shifted towards the customization of its functions, and it has gradually expanded it. Through these developments, we have grabbed some interesting features that are still not available on other Android devices. Here, we are talking about the stack widget functionality.
Samsung introduced the stack widget function last year with One UI 5.0. With this function, it has provided better management for multiple widgets. For starters, you can create a widget stack easily; you just need to add a widget to the home screen. To do that, you just have to press and hold the screen (on an empty area). Then it will appear at the bottom of the screen. Tap on it. Here, choose any of the widgets that you want to add to the home screen.
Once it’s done, you need to long-press the widget you recently added and then click on the create stack button. Here, you will get a list of all the available widgets that will be added to your first widget. You can add multiple widgets by following the same steps.
However, at first glance, it looks great that you can easily switch between multiple widgets, but as Samsung has provided several customization features for other functions, there is also some improvement needed. For example, in iOS, it shows smart suggestions on the home screen about what you can add to your stack to get information systematically, as well as automatically showing the relevant widget on the screen according to the time.
If we talk about the latest major update, we had expected this functionality with the One UI 6, but it didn’t happen. All it has done relevant to the widget is bring some new widgets, such as a custom camera widget and an insight widget. But as per tradition, Samsung has always unlocked its full potential with the x.1 version that comes with the new flagship S series devices, so it is possible that we may get this feature with the upcoming One UI 6.1.
