Samsung Galaxy S5: How to Make Accuweather Widget Becomes Transparent in Android 4.4.2 Kitkat

By default, the Accuweather widget on your home screen displays a picture in the background and it will change based on the current weather forecast. However, if you don't like the background picture, you can adjust the widget transparency in the widget settings menu so that the background picture of the widget will be invisible.

How to make the Accuweather widget becomes transparent?
You can do so by using the following steps:
  1. Tap the Accuweather widget on your home screen.
  2. Tap or long press the Recent apps key to open up the additional options and then select Settings.
  3. Tap Widget transparency. By default, the widget transparency is set to 0%.
  4. Drag the widget transparency adjustment bar to the rightmost, or in other words, you have to adjust the widget transparency up to 100%. You'll get the preview when adjusting the widget transparency so that you'll get an idea how it might look like when the transparency has been adjusted.
  5. Press the Home key to go to your home screen and you'll see the Accuweather widget becomes transparent.


  1. You guys should update so the pictures are accurate to the environment. I live in the desert and the widget is s picture of a tree.

  2. I have a G900V on Verizon. Is there a way to put the temp in the notification bar with the Google weather widget?
