    Hi @guster, neither on Android 7.0 and 6.0... We will look into this issue and do something about it. Thank you for letting us know! ~ Marie

    Can someone confirm that bug was fixed in latest Android update? version 14.4.*

    I myself use Android 7.0 where the Current Location is sometimes working on the Widget (but always loading for a very long time) and sometimes not at all, reporting message “Failed to retrieve forecast data.” ... Saved Favorites are working fine on the Widget.

    I’ve tested Android 8 via BrowserStack (Pixel & Pixel 2) where the Widget behaves exactly as described above. (I’m using a backup user profile for testing Favorites.)

    Android 5.1 - Widget is working fine, including Current Location.

    Those who complained on GooglePlay (Android 6.0 - X3a40 and Android 7.0 - Galaxy Note5) have not yet updated to 14.4., although I’ve encouraged them to do so.
