Google's new feature focused on your digital wellbeing

Google's new feature focused on your digital wellbeing

It's a pretty simple app from Google, that allows designers and developers to share their work and even get feedback on it from other designers, developers and users.

Wellness theme - The new OS implements the wellness factor in context of mobile phone usage.

The YouTube Take a rest feature can be found about the mobile app Putting display.

While it's nice to know how much time you're wasting on Angry Birds or, my current favorite Snake vs Block, there are a few caveats with Digital Wellbeing. Once you set proper timing of reminder, you would receive a notification and the video which you are watching will be paused at that very moment.

New App Time Limitations- Another huge change with Android P is that there are now time limits for apps.

The company hopes to reduce phone addiction with Dashboard, a new feature where you can manage how much time they spend on your devices. When the time expires, the app gets grayed out. "Wind Down" turns on DND on your phone and turns the screen to greyscale as per your set bedtime. Before, it would sometimes switch to the less commonly used Ring or Alarm volumes.

Android P brings a full-fledged editor to screenshots so you can make adjustments without having to open another app.

The on-screen interface for volume controls will also be moved closer to the hardware buttons so you can easily move the digital scroll bar after activating it with a single button press.

App Search Result Experience- The app search result experience is about to get a whole lot better in Android P. With Android P, you now will be able to see what you can do inside of the various apps.

The Actions and Slices app features may be hard to grasp at the moment because there aren't many examples to point to. It's actually a simple reminder, which you can customize, telling you that you should take a break from watching videos on the platform. One will disable all notification sounds and vibrations in the YouTube program for a fixed amount of time. So if you have Netflix casting to a TV screen and nothing else running on your phone, all of that watchtime doesn't get logged.

The Take a Break and other notification features are available in the latest version (13.17.55) of the YouTube app. If you really need in the app, you can. This can be done without ever going into the app.
