How to Add a Widget to Android Home Screen

In this post, we’ll see how to add a widget to the Android home screen.

In this instance, I’m using Android Pie. Let’s get started.


  1. Go to the home screen you prefer.
  2. Long press the blank space in the home screen and then tap “Widgets.”
  3. Find the one you prefer and then long-press it.
  4. Now, you should be on the home screen where you can drop the widget in the place you want.

That’s it. All done.

You need to keep in mind two more things:

  • If the home screen doesn’t have enough space for the widget, then you can’t add it there, and you’ll see a message stating that.
  • You may need to set up the widget after placing it on the home screen.

To Remove Widget

  1. Long press the widget you want to remove.
  2. Now, you can see the “Remove” option at the top.
  3. Drop the widget on the “Remove” option.

That’s it. All done.
