Earlier this year at I/O 2018 developer conference, Google announced new features that are coming to Android 9 Pie OS. One of the features that caught everyone’s attention was Digital Wellbeing – which is designed to offer you a complete picture of your digital habits, and disconnect whenever you want. Initially rolled out in beta for Google Pixel devices, Digital Wellbeing is now available for Nokia 7 Plus, making it the first non-Pixel phone to get the feature.

The app can be downloaded from Google Play store, but your smartphone needs to run on Android 9 Pie. Yes, HMD Global hasn’t rolled out Android 9 Pie for Nokia 7 Plus, but it is a part of Android 9 Pie Beta program, and if your phone runs a beta build, you can head over to the Google Play Store to download the Digital Wellbeing app.

Google has built the Digital Wellbeing app to help you get rid of your smartphone addiction. Basically, the app shows the entire statistics of your smartphone usage. To begin with, you get to see how frequently you use different apps on your phone. You can also see how many notifications you receive in a day, and from which apps you get most notifications. You also get to know the number of times you check your phone.

Besides these, you can also set daily app timers, with which you can limit your app usage. The app can also remind you to switch off the device at night, set a schedule to face your screen to grayscale mode, and also enable Do Not Disturb mode to silence all notifications, and have a good night sleep. Once the app is downloaded on a compatible phone, you will be able to see the Digital Wellbeing feature in the Settings menu.
