Just got a Nexus 5 running KitKat (what else?), but I cannot figure out how to add widgets to the lockscreen! On JB, swiping right from the left edge while showing lockscreen would display a "+" widget option. This is no longer the case. Are lockscreen widgets gone?!


You have to check "Enable widgets" in Settings > Security. Then you can swipe right on the lockscreen as usual.

  • Why that? What's the connection between those two? – ce4 Nov 1 '13 at 20:33
  • Does this also work with PIN or pattern enabled? As this was not the case in JB. – user46035 Nov 12 '13 at 14:30
