Let us say, for example, that you want to add a list of products for a specific category in the home page, instead of showing some static contents. You may have noticed that it is not automatically displayed on your Magento website Home Page. This is because you need to specifically instruct Magento to display certain category or group of products such as those marked as “New” on the home page.
Magento 2 has introduced an improved widget option. With the help of the widget option, you can easily add dynamic contents like specific category, new products,etc.
Easy Steps to Display Products in Magento 2 Home Page
The screen shot below shows an empty home page. The steps below will walk you through as to how to add a specific category products in the home page.
