Bubble trouble on new Samsung launcher? Here is the fix!

Please share:

Important update

Samsung’s Android 13 / One UI 5 update for Galaxy phones introduced a strange system behavior, where the launcher provides incorrect dimensions to the home screen widget which was used to open Youtube or similar apps, capable of playing full screen video. These erroneous dimension updates seem to happen on orientation changes (portrait to landscape or back), but not every time.

v10.15.7: Workaround for OneUI 5 bug on updated Samsung phones

Original post

OneUI 4 / Android 12 also caused havoc on Samsung watches, that workaround is already included in all recent versions of Bubble Cloud:

If Bubble Cloud widgets look like this on your Android 12 / One UI 4 Samsung phone please do the following:

Click on the pencil tool, then on the circle-plus ⊕ tool that appears in its place to get to the Cloud Configuration Screen

Use the “Wrong shape” button, then the “Calibrate Launcher” button.

Now use the dark arrows to change the frame to dark.

You should not see any light frame on either side of this widget.

Then press the white checkmark.

No your bubbles disappear, but the widget is there: you can long press and resize that widget and your bubbles will re-appear.

Any future widgets that you create will look perfect after this.
