The Weather Channel App for Samsung, which was released in 2016, offers exclusive functionality to users of the soon-to-be-released Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ devices and older devices like the S7, S6 and Note 5. The latest feature to be added to the Weather Channel App for Samsung includes Google calendar event syncing and Lyft ride requests.

Now users can also book a ride to the event using the Lyft app. The Lyft feature is now accessible for app users within the U.S., and The Weather Channel for Samsung App is accessible globally within the Galaxy Apps store.
