Why Am I Not Receiving Weather Notifications on My Samsung Galaxy S23?

If you wonder why your Samsung Galaxy S23 isn’t sending you weather alerts, several scenarios could explain why you don’t get them: 

  1. You may have disabled weather notifications in your device settings. 
  2. Location services on your Galaxy S23 might be malfunctioning. 
  3. The app may have been outdated. 
  4. There might be a problem with the weather server. 
  5. Other system issues.

If it is a server issue, then there is nothing you can do about it. But if the issue occurs dues to one of the other reasons, by following the solutions below, you will be able to fix them and receive up-to-date weather information on your Galaxy S23 once again without any issues.

Fix 01: Turn on Weather Notification in Settings

First, you need to ensure Weather Notifications are turned on in settings. It is because if you have turned it off by accident, then you won’t receive any weather notifications to your Galaxy S23.

To do this, follow the steps below:

  1. Go to Settings.
  2. Tap on Apps.
  3. Scroll down and select “Weather.”
  4. Tap on Weather settings.

Fix 02: Clear Weather App Cache

If the Weather app cache is corrupted or outdated, that is why you are not receiving any weather notifications. If this is the case, you have to remove corrupted cache files by clearing the cache of the weather app from app settings:

  1. Go to Settings.
  2. Tap on Apps.
  3. Tap on “Weather.”
  4. Go to Storage.
  5. Tap on Clear cache.

Fix 03: Clear Weather App Data

If clearing the app cache did not work, you can try clearing its app data. Since you don’t have any saved data that require you to turn on the weather app, this will work fine without any issues.

This is similar to clearing the app cache:

  1. Go to Settings.
  2. Tap on Apps.
  3. Select “Weather.”
  4. Go to Storage.
  5. Tap on Clear data.

Fix 04: Update the Weather App

If the app is outdated, this could be why you don’t see any weather notifications appearing on your Galaxy S23.

To ensure that you have the latest version of the application, open the Galaxy Store on your device and follow the steps below to update the app:

  1. Open Galaxy Store.
  2. Tap on Menu icon.
  3. Tap on Updates.
  4. Scroll down and select the app.
  5. Tap on Update.

Fix 05: Disable Battery Optimizations for the Weather App

Battery optimization puts unused apps to sleep so the device’s battery won’t drain so early. However, an app like the weather app should not be included under the battery optimization as it puts the app to sleep and prevent it from sending weather notifications.

So you have to check and make sure the app is excluded from battery optimizations. Here is how you can do that:

  1. Go to Settings.
  2. Tap on Apps.
  3. Tap on the Weather app.
  4. Go to Battery.
  5. Turn on Allow background activity (Don’t do anything if it is turned on and greyed out).

Fix 06: Do a Software Update

To fix software issues, you can update your device’s software. Installing system updates will allow your device to work without bugs and other glitches.

To update your Galaxy S23 software:

  1. Go to Settings.
  2. Tap on Software update.
  3. Then, tap on Download and install.
