Add widget

Widgets are useful programs or services that can be freely positioned on the OnePlus smartphone's start screen, provided there is enough free space.
The widgets differ in form and function, as there are widgets for various apps and topics, such as weather, stocks or messengers.

If we install apps, such as Netflix or WhatsApp, a corresponding widget is automatically installed, which can also be added afterwards to provide us with the most important information.

Note: If there are apps in the way when the widget is rearranged, they will be moved automatically.
