Digital Wellbeing is out of beta: the application officially reaches its version 1.0
Digital health is one of the elements that technology companies have been paying special attention to over the last twelve months. Conversations around the effect of technology on people has prompted proactive steps to avoid overuse. If we need to focus on our highest priority tasks or be aware of how much time we actually spend browsing social media, tools like Digital Wellbeing they help a lot.
Google has opted, where appropriate, for a tool integrated into the operating system settings, although reserved for smartphones that already enjoy Android 9 Pie. With Digital Wellbeing You can find out how much time you spend using an application, as well as set usage limits to block them if you exceed predetermined hours. It also cares about your physical health by activating modes such as Night Light or black and white mode.
So far this tool was in beta. Despite being announced as one of the great novelties of Android 9 Pie and despite being announced for the Google Pixel 3, the truth is that it has been difficult to get to the point where it can be said that the official launch has taken place. However, Digital Wellbeing exits beta and it is now available to download on compatible mobiles.
How to download Digital Wellbeing
As we say, the reach of Digital Wellbeing is still limited. Google initially reserved this tool for Pixel mobiles that use Android 9 Pie. Over the months, the selection was extended to devices with Android One, but this has not been an improvement. Despite the promises regarding Android One and the speed of its updates, the truth is that devices as popular as the Xiaomi Mi A1 have not yet received the latest version of the operating system.
As a result, Digital Wellbeing It still does not fly as it should, but it can be installed if you meet the necessary conditions. You have, as usual, two ways., On the one hand, you can access the application store of Google and download it for free. On the other hand, you can access APK Mirror and download the corresponding apk file on your mobile to install the application.
