Google added lock screen widgets into Android over a year ago. When Samsung released the Galaxy S5, just three months ago, they ended up taking it out for whatever reason. Thankfully though, there’s a new Xposed module that will add this functionality back into your Samsung Galaxy S5.
Galaxy S5 mod brings lock screen widgets
This functionality can come in two layers, depending on your setup. The first layer is for a lock screen without any security setting at all. Meaning, if you don’t use a pattern, fingerprint or a PIN number to unlock your device, then you only need to install the ‘Galaxy S5 Lockscreen Widgets’ Xposed module. You can follow the source link below to start installing this module.
The second layer is for users that have a security option for their lock screen. If this is you, then you need to install the first Xposed module and then install this second one, Samsung Multiple Widgets. Once you have both of these installed then you can start adding widgets to your secured Galaxy S5 lock screen.
We would like to thank the community developer, elesbb, for all of his hard work. The developer is offering support in the XDA Developers thread in case you need some help or have any issues. If you found either of these modules useful then think about donating to the cause. The more donations that get sent to community developers, the more time they can put toward their Android projects.
