@the_program We will be releasing a new app update soon, let us know if the issue persists once you download the update please.
@the_program Hello, did you also try to set the location manually? Each widget can have a different location.
@korina Sorry I enabled notifications but they don't seem to be working.
Anyway if I set a manual location that works fine. Also, if I press the refresh button on the widget it updates the location. However once the auto refresh comes along the location is reverted back to the location that it was before.
So it seems that the code that handles the refresh button doesn't update the location for the auto refresh part.
The version of the app is currently 33.0.5 so I don't know what version I need. But for now the behavior is still the same.
Same behavior on both. Widget is blank. Just a grey box without content.
- Do not disturb off.
- Location services allowed for app. Also precise location turned on.
- Tried both GPS position and manually setting (several different) locations as startup in app settings.
On the iPhone, when adding a new widget, the small preview/example one shows Prague as location and the large one shows blank, grey box.
Adding either of them shows blank/grey box.
On the iPad both previews as blank/grey boxes.
I have three other weather-apps showing content and location correctly.
@stromseth Hello, this is caused by system issue. The best way to resolve it is to restart your phone and iPad.
@the_program Have you please updated to the newest version 220.127.116.11?
@stromseth Hello, after a closer look, we can confirm it is a bug on our side. We will fix it with our next release.

Widgets no longer auto-update after latest Android update. Manual updating works fine.
Checked location permissions and there is no option for "Allow all the time", so I have it set with the most unrestricted setting which is "Allow only while using the app"
Data usage and battery settings are completely unrestricted.
I figured Android made some change that broke the app, but I couldn't find any information about it. Is there anything else I should try, or is this something you are aware of?
@akovia Hello, please try to restart your phone and reinstall the app + place the widget again on homescreen.
Widget in single row: the coloured bar for wind strength overlaps the temperatures.
(Samsung S21 FE, Android 12)
@chborris Hello, what version of the app do you have?
I am having the same problem as akovia. Android 12, latest update to both os and app. Widget will not auto update. Widget will update if pushed manually.
I have reinstalled the app and widget but this did not fix it. Setting the location manually also did not fix it.
@tjasian Hello, some users may experience this problem, since it is an issue of Android OS. We recommend to try steps mentioned in this article - https://www.digitbin.com/widgets-not-updating-on-android-fix/
@korina Works now thank you! For anyone else, the trick for me was setting the battery optimization in Apps > Battery - Usage unrestricted.
@tjasian Happy to hear it works properly again and thank you for the tip.

For a while now have not been able to display the Windy Widget on iPhone 11 pro or iPad pro, both now running 1OS 15.6
The widget if listed but when selected this error message appears
Despite installing the latest version of Windy from the App Store
@snookie Hello, this widget in the side menu is not available for iOS 14 and higher. To add widgets on your screen, press the home screen, tap on the plus button and choose Windy to select a specific widget.

@korina ahhh I see what you mean, was hoping to have something like this on the side bar rather than the Home screen.
@junkitt Hi all,
It has been over a year, I think, since my last post.
Shortly after that, you came out with an update which included a radar widget for iOS (YAY!!!!!!!!!!) I should have written when that first came out, since I was so vocal about getting one.
So I wanted to let you all know how very happy I am with having your radar widget! It looks great and works just as well as your app does. So now, I hardly ever get into the app because I can see everything in the today view.
This is truly, a marvelous addition to your utilities. And I am so proud to be a premere member and supporting such a wonderful organization. (I just hope that apple doesn't do something to cause it to not work. Shhhhhhhhh...)
I also love love love seeing others using Windy as their radar source!
