I don't have to mention to you that widgets that aren't updating are very annoying.

To resolve this issue, the app had to be moved back to the memory of the phone using these steps: Repeat these steps for any other apps you are experiencing the same issue with. You will have to clear the Home screen data and start fresh.

These steps will reset your icons on the Home screen back to defaults.

It turns out that this is a feature of Android where widgets are blocked for apps that are installed to the SD card.

This was my problem since I had just moved all of my apps the SD card to save space.

I have several widgets that should update regularly: chats, weather, Google Fit, call logs etc; and none of them is updating.

When I reboot my phone, it updates the widgets one time, and that's that. For example, I have the widget for Google Fit on my home screen, and it is still showing the status from a couple of days ago; when I rebooted my phone.

It's not related to a single widget, it's all of them.

I haven't found a single one that updates at the moment.

I noticed a problem with my widgets on my Android device where the app widgets were not showing up.
