Grab the Samsung Galaxy S8 weather app widget for your Galaxy S7

This is the time of the year when owners of last year's Samsung Galaxy S handset start feeling a wee bit jealous. For an entire year, they had the top selling Android handset with all of the latest features. But with the brand spanking new model about to be released, a slight depression takes over. Owners of the Samsung Galaxy S7 are now experiencing that feeling. It's the same feeling that Apple iPhone owners had when the Apple iPhone 3G was introduced. In a matter of weeks, the Samsung Galaxy S8 will come to market with a more powerful Snapdragon 835 chipset under the hood. And the new phone will include an iris scanner and face recognition technology.

The biggest change with the Galaxy S8 might be the addition of AI assistant Bixby. Yesterday, we told you about a method that could be used to install Bixby on any Samsung handset running Android 7.0 and higher. And there is another Galaxy S8 feature that owners of the Galaxy S7 might want to cop; that is the native weather app widget found on the new device.

Installing the Galaxy S8's weather app widget on your Galaxy S7 is a snap. The directions are pretty straight forward, and once you have Bixby and the Weather app widget on your Galaxy S7, you'll be a little less jealous of those friends of yours who are going to pre-order the Galaxy S8. To add the new flagship's weather app widget to your Galaxy S7, simply click on the sourcelink and download the file on your phone. Locate the two APK files and install them. No rooting, no mess.

The new weather app is now linked to the weather channel instead of accuweather.

Yup. Just noticed that too. IMO, weather channel is better.

I agree but I noticed my s2 watch still says accuweather, so hopefully they update the app for my s2 cuz now they are not synchronized.

Ok. I installed it but it seems it replaced the original S7 weather widget! How do I revert back??
