The Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ Plus have a handy weather app that is fully equipped to keep all users well informed of changing local weather. You might be used to Google Now or other weather apps, but the original app on your Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8+ Plus is usually the preference for many owners.
Similar to many other android devices, this phone has a Clock widget which introduces itself the very first time users engage with the home screen. Through this app you can also access weather reports. It is possible to have this information show on the lock screen and Information Stream areas of the phone’s interface.
This weather function is linked Accuweather, and provides the reliable reports gathered and made available by this software. The weather app does not appear easy to find in the launcher. It must be found.
The function is not like a traditional app. It only comes in the form of an ability which has to be accessed via the Clock widget. There is no other way to get hold of this information. Many users will see this as a bad thing, but some will appreciate this fact. If you want to avoid the Accuweather information all together, it is relatively easy to shut off all reports by turning off the Clock widget in the settings menu.
This will help those who want to keep the weather reports from third party apps as the sole weather provider on their device. It can seem hard to get used to at first, but once you see how easy it is to control, it becomes easy to see why this function was designed this way.
Accuweather is one of the most widely used weather providers on the market and so for those that don’t have a particular preference, then this system will work perfectly.
