One feature I dreadfully miss from Windows Phone was that my next calendar event was always displayed on my lockscreen:

I now use the Outlook application on Android to manage my daily life. Is there a way to enable a similar feature on Android?

  • Afraid not without root. That feature was available until someone decided to ban it with the release of Android 5 (Lollipop). – Izzy Dec 12 '16 at 7:36

  • This is a far cry from what Windows Phone OS offers out-of-the box, but of everything I tried recently, the least worst option seems to be Calendar Notify Agenda Status (play.google.com/store/apps/…). I have been trying it for a few hours and it seems like an okay alternative (I'm not using the widget part of it, just the lock screen notifications). – Alek Davis Mar 6 '17 at 21:53
