Android weather widget not updating automatically
But after a time the widget would probably crash or something (not visible though), and other widgets stopped too.I'm trying to write an Android widget that updates itself to different messages in text.
As I already mentioned, I'm using a Motorola Nexus 6 with stock Android 6.0.1 on it.Weather Android is available completely free of charge, and comes with a widget, custom icons, and a great user interface.Since a couple of days/weeks, I noticed that my widgets aren't updating anymore on my home screens of my Nexus 6 (Android 6.0.1).Android Weather will, quickly and accurately, provides detailed weather for all cities around the world.It has the ability to quickly find and locate the cities you live, and provides the current temperature, the current weather, moisture and wind conditions, and provides five days weather forecast.I've never had these problems before, up until the past few days.
Usually I would just move over to my other home screen, look at the temp, and move back. I restarted the phone yesterday, still doing the same thing.
I tried the Android N beta some time ago (I can't remember if the widgets updated then though). But I'm guessing the Android N beta has nothing to do with my problem? Are there some settings that I could have executed that froze my widgets?
But because there were some problems with applications I use daily, I reverted back to my old Android 6.0.1 build. Maybe something with battery optimizations or something?
So I got into the Android widget documentation to find out what made the widgets tick. So I found out, that one widget can actually block the updating of the other widgets. So by adding every widget seperately, with a lot of time in between, I could notice that the problem occurred after a while.
The time in between was rather important, because if I did it immediately there was no problem.
