Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge: How to Add or Remove Widget in Home Screen in Android 5.1.1 Lollipop

Widgets are small apps that can be used to easily launch a specific app function to provide you information and convenient access from your phone's home screen, for instance: the music widget that will let you easily control the music playback from the home screen, the weather widget that will let you easily know the weather information from the home screen, etc.

How to add a widget to the home screen?
Before you can use a widget, you have to add it first to your home screen. As the example, we'll try adding the music widget to the home screen by using the following steps:
  1. While you're in a home screen, pinch the screen using two fingers or long tap on an empty area.
  2. Tap the Widgets icon at the bottom of the screen to view the widgets list.
  3. Swipe the screen to the left or right to find the Music 4x1 widget, or you can use the search function to find this widget with more quickly by using these steps:
    • Tap More at the top right and then select Search widgets.
    • Type music in the search field. All music widgets will be displayed on your screen.
  4. Tap and hold the Music 4x1 widget and then drag it to an empty area on a home screen. Release to place the widget.
  5. The Music 4x1 widget has been added to the home screen. As a note, some widgets may ask you to do some configurations, if that so, you just need to follow the on-screen instructions to complete the configuration. If you'd like to add more home screens in your phone so you can add more widgets, you can find the complete steps here.

How to remove a widget from the home screen?

  1. Go to the home screen where the music widget is placed in.
  2. Tap and hold the music widget and then drag it to the Remove icon located at the top of the screen. Release to delete the widget.
