    My model is galaxy j2 pro and i tried google weather inbuilt weather widget but it is showing your home location. I want real location weather widget, basing on phone location, or whereever i am having the mobile.
    i did not find this in andoid app in play google store.
    The apps i tried only gives their choice of location or fixed location like home
    I also do not want third party apps like accu weather, which is alleged to have sold the location data to third parties.
    If there is a setting in google widget at a glance widget, then i will be gld.
    if the widget belongs to reputed vendor, who does not sell data would be gled to use
    When i click on the at a glace widget of google, it rounds and get you the fixed location.
    Google location sharing service is entirelyl different settings , i think
    If i have to make it , to know the weather where my mobile is , what i want.
    There may be experts using those.

    YourJ2 stock Samsung weather app and widget can show your real location automatically.

    Check, Use current location, is turned ON in the weather settings.

    Well i usually just look out the window to see what the weather is but AccuWeather gives me a "Feels Like" temp with no ads.

    I've got an S7, but I'd assume J2 is same or similar. It should be able to add the Samsung weather widget to the home screen from the launcher itself. It was actually on by default on my S7.

    If you don't want a third party app then surely you just accept the widget you have?

    There are plenty of third party apps that can do this (the BBC are a non-commercial outfit whose Weather app can show what you want). But with any app it's a matter of trust, including Google and Samsung.
