Step 4. Tap the widget you would like to add.

Launch an app from the cover screen

You can launch an app from the cover screen using either of the two methods below.

Option 1:

  1. Go to Settings > Advanced features > Labs > Apps allowed on cover screen.

  2. Tap the switches next to the apps you wish to enable on your cover screen.


Option 2:

  1. Go to Galaxy Store > Download and install Good Lock app.

  2. Launch Good Lock, and then go to Life up > MultiStar > I ♡ Galaxy Foldable > Enable Launcher.

  3. Select an app to add, and then tap Enable Launcher Widget > Launcher widget.



  • When you add an app, an Apps widget is automatically created that consists of the executable app.
  • Apps found in the “Apps allowed on cover screen” feature include (but are subject to change): Messages (Samsung), KakaoTalk, Line, WhatsApp, Messages (Google), YouTube, Netflix, Naver Maps, Maps (Google), and WeChat.
  • Samsung Lab and Good Lock are not officially supported, so apps found through these features may not function as expected when launched from the cover screen.
