It’s late fall, winter is just around the corner, and there’s probably no better time to talk about the weather and weather apps. Welcome to SamMobile’s new weekly overview of Galaxy apps and services. This week we’ll dive into the Samsung Weather app that comes with Galaxy phones and tablets.
As usual, we’ll start from the beginning and ask the basic question: What is Samsung Weather?
Story continues after Galaxy S23 FE review video
Samsung Weather is an app developed by Samsung that comes preloaded on most Galaxy devices. In essence, it provides weather information. But look deeper under the hood, and you may find some interesting facts and settings that will surprise you.
First, it’s worth noting that Samsung Weather collects all its data from The Weather Channel to display on its One UI interface. Interacting with most elements of the Samsung Weather UI will redirect the user to an appropriate Weather Channel web page.
Later, after using the app more, you may notice that Samsung Weather doesn’t always look the same. It changes based on several factors. What’s more, you’ll discover that this app can give you information about more than just the temperature outside.
Samsung Weather app overview
At a quick glance, the most notable information that Samsung Weather shares with its users is the temperature outside. Displays temperature information based on the user’s current location or places that can be manually selected.
The Samsung Weather app provides information regarding current temperatures and weather as well as daily and hourly forecasts. Each type of weather is accompanied by beautiful animation.
Additionally, Samsung Weather can tell you UV indexes, humidity levels, wind speeds, and sunrise/sunset hours, which change depending on the seasons. The application also provides a map view, in addition to… “Today’s Stories” And “video tapes” Categories.
Finally, by scrolling down at the bottom of the Samsung Weather homepage, users can get information about pollen and air quality, as well as operating conditions and information about driving difficulty.
Before we move on to discuss the Weather app in more detail this week, it’s important to stress that the Samsung Weather UI isn’t completely fixed in place. Some items will appear or disappear depending on outside weather, alerts, and forecasts.
Likewise, you’ll notice that the overall appearance of the Weather app will change based on the time of day and weather. But no matter how they change visually, the general rule is that most UI elements that can be interacted with (clicked on) will lead users to relevant Weather Channel pages.
Join us all week as we discuss more about Samsung Weather, locations, settings, units of measurement, and more. We might take a closer look at weather widgets.
