Digital Wellbeing

Among all the exciting updates and product enhancements, a big theme that stood out during Google's opening keynotes was wellness.

To that end, Google rolled out a series of updates it is calling Digital Wellbeing. The new features include the ability for users to automatically put their phone in Do Not Disturb mode when flipping the phone over so that notifications don't cause any distractions -- a capability called "Shush." The new Android dashboard can also track how long users have spent on their phone that day, and gives users the choice to set time limits on specific applications. "Wind Down," another wellness feature, will set users' phones to a less stimulating grayscale around a set bedtime to encourage users to log off.
