Have you signed up for Android Pie's Digital Wellbeing beta?

Android Pie officially dropped this past Monday, and with it comes a new gesture navigation system, an updated UI, battery-saving features, and plenty more. Along with all this, Pixel and Pixel 2 owners running the new software can also sign up to join Google's Digital Wellbeing beta.

After you sign up for the beta, you'll receive instructions on how to download the Digital Wellbeing app from the Play Store. Once you do this, a Digital Wellbeing section will automatically appear in your settings.

Digital Wellbeing is designed to help you use your phone less, and as such, Google's providing stats to help you see how much you're using your phone throughout the day, which apps you're spending the most time on, and give you tools that are designed to make it easier to put your device down.

Going through the forums, it looks like a lot of our members have already signed up for the beta!

I opted into the Beta And I got the email today and downloaded it. It's fascinating to see how many times I've unlocked my phone today LOL

  • Yep I've signed up.
  • Yea, I used XDA's link to download the APK early. The next day, I got the email from Google and updated the feature/app?. Dropped a video on my Vrsatile channel about Digital Wellbeing if anyone is interested! 😄
  • Nah, I am skipping Pie since my phone doesn't have a notch. It is interesting that they are overloading you with notifications. Good thing Pie can only show two of them at a time regardless of whether you have a notch or not so as not to clutter things.
  • Have no desire to download or use the Digital Wellbeing app. Just another gimmick.
  • How long does it take to receive the email? I signed up yesterday and still no response
