About the WorldRemit exchange rate widget


You can use our widget to keep up to date on our latest exchange rate to your favourite country where you want to send money to, directly on the homescreen of your mobile phone. There is no need for you to connect to the app or check on the calculator. 

If you have an Android phone, the widget will show you our latest exchange rates for the countries in which you send or receive money.

If you have an iPhone, the exchange rate widget will show you our latest exchange rate, based on the details of your last WorldRemit money transfer (countries where you are sending money from and to, payment methods, send amount).

Clicking on the widget from the homescreen of your mobile phone automatically redirects you to the pre-filled calculator screen in the WorldRemit app. This will save you precious time when you send money again.
