With the recent Android releases, Google has been focusing on the ‘Digital Wellbeing’ feature to help you have a healthy lifestyle (rather than just looking at the smartphone all day).
The features offered currently are quite helpful to reduce or control the screen time. You can put timers on every application and put a limit on its usage.
However, to take the initiative up a notch, Google has announced about the digital wellbeing experiments which involve 6 new apps as spotted by Android Police.
These experimental applications are directly available at the Play Store or you can download the APK file from APKMirror.com as well.
Starting with an app like “Unlock Clock” which counts the number of times you unlocked the device and displays the number in your homescreen to remind you of the fact.
In addition to this, you will also find another interesting app ‘We Flip‘ that lets you activate DND all at once by just flipping multiple devices at the same time. with nearby users/friends, here’s how it works:
Next up, Post Box is something that lets you put the phone in the DND mode and schedule all the snoozed notification at once (in a regular interval – which you choose).
Other apps like Paper Phone (to print the key information of your day on a paper), Desert Island (to help focus on particular apps) and Morph (to assign different modes to control notifications/apps while using the device) have also been spotted to help encourage digital wellbeing.
Even though these experiments might never make it to the Gooogle’s list of pre-installed apps, these are worth checking out. What do you think?
