Selecting Widgets:

Choose the widgets you want to stack and tap "Add." This will allow you to combine various Samsung and third-party widgets and it will create a customized and concise experience on your home screen.

Adding More Widgets:

You can expand your stacked widget by long-tapping the widget and selecting "Edit stack." Here, you can add more widgets to the stack and decide whether you want the stack to rotate between widgets automatically.

You can also experiment with different widgets, and rearrange them within the stack according to your needs. This flexibility ensures a personalized and dynamic home screen for your Samsung Galaxy S23.
