If you're someone who regularly runs into things while on your phone, listen (and look) up — Google has a new Digital Wellbeing feature called Heads Up that reminds you to look up from time to time. You know, like a human? Here's how to enable it.
Google's Digital Wellbeing tools are powerful and potentially very effective. It's time to spend more time experiencing life outside of screens, and Google is continuing to add useful and helpful tools for you and your smartphone. So here's how to get started using them!
Smartphones are powerful tools that we use to help run just about every facet of our daily lives, but sometimes we need to silence these devices and take a break. We'll show you how to do just that on your Samsung Galaxy phone with the built-in Digital Wellbeing tools.
TikTok's digital wellbeing efforts get a boost with a new Family Safety Mode. Parents and guardians will be able to link their accounts to those of their kids and control what content they see as well as limit screen time.
Google has now added a snooze feature to Digital Wellbeing's Wind Down functionality. You can now pause the feature for up to half an hour, reducing the temptation of just turning the feature off and then staying on your phone all night.
As of early September, any company making an Android phone that uses GMS is required to either preload Google's Digital Wellbeing and Family Link apps, or provide suitable alternative Digital Wellbeing and parental control feature set.
