Global widget :

A global widget gives you full control over a specific widget displayed in multiple places on a site. You can edit it in one place and it will get updated at all the other places. It saves time and effort to go to single pages and edit each page manually.

Let us assume you have created a  widget and liked it a lot. You want to use this on other pages too, so by saving it as a global widget, you don’t have to create the design again and again. Just drag and drop the widget from the global tab.
