Android 15 may bring back a long-lost lock screen feature


What you need to know

  • Android 15 could bring support for lock screen widgets, based on code found in Android 14 QPR2 Beta 3.
  • Android did support lock screen widgets back in the day, but support ended with Android 5.
  • Mishaal Rahman, an Android expert and developer, managed to activate the feature in Android 14 QPR2 Beta 3. 

There are a bunch of rumored new features that could appear in Android 15, but old might become new again in the next version of Android. Lock screen widgets might be set for a comeback in Android 15, according to Mishaal Rahman at Android Authority.

The Android expert and developer found code references in Android 14 QPR2 Beta 3 that relate to widget support on the lock screen. There are two possible ways that Google could build widgets into the Android 15 lock screen: through the At a Glance feature or through a new “communal space,” Rahman says.
