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?
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?It turns out that this is a feature of Android where widgets are blocked for apps that are installed to the SD card.This was my problem since I had just moved all of my apps the SD card to save space.I had tried several different ones and after a period of time, the widget would stop updating or responding to the manual update input from touching the widget.I could delete the widget from the screen and then readd it back, however, this did not resolve the issue.
