Last month, we told you about Microsoft’s new ‘Next Lock Screen’ app for Android users which brings on the lock screen all the vital information you might need without having to unlock it. Now the app has been updated by Microsoft with some signifcant new features that will please those who have downloaded it already and will make it even more appealing to those hearing for the first time about it.


The fresh update brings the following new features:

  • Weather information for your location
  • Option to select your home wallpaper as the lock wallpaper
  • Ability to hide the system status bar
  • Better integration with the default device lock on Samsung devices running Kitkat
  • Performance improvement and bug fixes

I have downloaded the app on my Android smartphone and can gladly recommend it to anyone. It’s one of the best free lockscreen apps currently available on the Play Store, so if you’re looking for such a tool, there’s nothing that can stop you to get it.

From now on, by using the new version, you will get weather information tailored to your location, so you won’t have to unlock your device to get access to this information. Also, by selecting your home wallpaper as the lock wallpaper, the experience will be even more immersive.
