Button with input does not work as widget

I created a flow button with number input. Running that from within the android app works fine. If I add it to my home screen as a widget I can press it, and fill it in, but the trigger does not get sent. After a while I either get a spinner that spins forever, or I get a red bar on the widget and a toast message saying "Couldn't trigger button".

When I tried it with a flow button that has no input it works fine.


Inside Power Automate I see the following error details:

I am using the latest version of the android app, installed it just now.


Any hints how to fix this?

I am having the same issue, the flow works perfectly if I run it through teams/web/using the app without a widget, however running the flow through a widget on Android is not working.

I am also having the same problem

I'm experiencing the same problem. When triggered though the Android widget, the button never works ("Couldn't trigger"), otherwise - when triggered through the Android app - it works.
