The new widgets have two different color options a black and a white one. Moreover, each widget comes with its own opacity setting. This allows you to precisely control how you want each widget to look like on your home screen. If that is not enough, an additional toggle lets users match the widget colors with that of their Samsung One UI theme. This means that the widgets are able to turn white and black based on whether you have dark mode turned on or off. Also Read - Samsung Galaxy M01, and M11 launching today; sale scheduled for 3PM

Note that the new widgets will work only when you have the latest update to the Samsung Galaxy Buds Plugin, or the Samsung Galaxy Buds+ Plugin, based on what earbuds you own. Also note that as always, the updates will come to users in phases, So not everyone will receive the widgets at once. If you have had the update come to you, you can start using the widgets right away. If not, you can manually head over to the Play Store and navigate to the Galaxy Buds/Buds+ Plugin app page. Check here if an update is available.  If you still have no update, you will just have to wait out for it a bit longer.
