    I got a 640 and am a first time glance user. Well, the screen shows only time and notification icons. I have seen screenshots around of glance showing date and month and glance background also. Well, I followed the following background beta app link
    www . windowsphone . com/ en-us/ store/ app/ glance-background/ 7c3378ff-2844-480b-b2e2-783537201b84
    (remove the spaces, can't post link since I am a new user)
    but it shows app not available for your device.

    So, any way to get more info on screen? Or do I have to be content with only time?

    --------------------------------

    Update : Okay, just found a FAQ entry on MS saying 640 only supports data and notification icons(quick status). Bummer, I was excited to make the glance prettier.

    You need the Glance Background app to be able to set your preferred background.

    Go to Settings -> Glance screen to see the options to show the date etc.

    That's the thing man, can't install that app. And under settings, there is no option to set date or detailed info.

    That's not everything. Had the glance background app for both my 1020 & 830. Resetted them both (one to be sold, the other after coming back from w10m) but I can't download the app either : "App not available for this device", even tho I've been using them both for months (2 years for the 1020). They just removed it

    Yeah,at least they should have provided a alternative for that in the official glance screen app,presently it only supports lockscreen image as glance background.

    Yep. Problem is you can't even pick a custom image. I'm using an app to display calendar/weather/stuff on my lockscreen so I can't display a photo on the glance.. That's sad

    Strange,I performed an hard reset after installing the official windows 10 update and didn't updated the glance screen app,installed the glance background beta app and all seems to work again!(I've decided that I'll never update the glance app until it enables the feature of manually selecting images as glance background).
