Smartphone Users Other Than Android 9 Pie Can Now Track Their Daily Digital Activities.
Google did not make it official yet but its new release in Android v1.0 and removal of the beta logo from the app signifies that it can be used by other smartphones too.
Digital wellbeing is freely available on Google Play Store for compatible handsets. From there one can download the app. Once downloaded it will be added into your phone’s settings.
Increasing mental health issues such as depression due to excessive use of smartphone make it essential to have a control over it. that is why Google initiated features like app nanny, Do Not Disturb(DND) mode, reminders etc in Digital Wellbeing to monitor their activities.
This will even help parents to keep a check on their children so that they don’t fall prey for issues like depression.
The digital dashboard will inform you of your habits. According to that one can take actions on it with help of its features. One can restrict the app usage to a specific time and once you cross the limit, that particular app will automatically be greyed out and inaccessible.
So If you want to have a balance in your real and digital world this can help you a lot. Digital addiction is a thing and its great to see some big names in Technology coming forward to combat it.
