    I have (Samsung Galaxy S7. Android version 8.0.0, Samsung Experience version 9.0. Everything is up to date. It has not been rooted or jailbreaked.

    A few days ago I went to check the weather but the app icon was missing. I found an app called Weather in the setttings. I found in the settings of the app "Add icon to app list" and turned it on.

    The problem.is, when I click this icon, it's not the same as my old trusty and simple to read weather app. I have never downloaded another weather app and certainly didn't delete the original. This one isn't nothing like my usual weather app. I also noticed that the enable and disable button is greyed out. So you can't disable/enable or even delete it.

    Does anyone know where my original weather app disappeared and why there's no icon on my home screen anymore?? What app came with the original Samsung Galaxy S7 and how do I get it back? Please help!

    Open your app drawer to find it

    also keep in mind that your phone is from 2017. most phones have a 3-4 year life span. after that things tend to break down, act weird, get really slow and buggy. most of it is due to the fact that most manufacturers and carriers stop supporting them after 2 or 3 major updates. also app developers will also stop support for their apps on older android os systems.

    so yes your weather app should be in your app drawer. is this the app that came pre-installed?

    I found the original weather app on my phone. I'm assuming it's the original because when you go to the app settings, it doesn't let you disable or delete it. And i had Iooked though my apps many times before looking for anything "weather" related. Found nothing. It seems this weather app appeared out of nowhere. And I haven't downloaded anything for a long time. It's completely different from the app I was using. I don't like it all. When you click on certain things, it takes you to the Accuweather website. I don't like that. My old app didn't do that. Maybe in the past, I downloaded a weather app, but I sure don't remember deleting a weather app. I've searched and searched for what I had with no luck. Maybe, Samsung Galaxy S7 changed the original app! Wish I knew what app I was using. I loved it. Google Play Store use to have an option to look at all your apps you've ever downloaded, but they no longer have that option. Unless I just cant find it.oh well. Thanks guys for all your feedback and help!!
