The features that make the app successful (distraction-free mode) will be accessible from the widget. It doesn’t have a release date yet.

It is certain that the health crisis has had a considerable effect on the increase in our screen time. Before 2020, the French spent an average of 2 hours on their laptop, and this figure exploded to 3:30 in the second quarter of 2020. In the world after, we had our eyes glued to our Facebook scrolls and our games of candy Crush, hence the growing popularity of screen time management apps.

The Digital Wellbeing widget, a division of Google, does not pretend to reinvent the powder. Among its innovations, magnifying circles allow you to categorize the most used applications and analyze their use. A 2×2 format allows you to include the widget on the home page of your smartphone, although you can enlarge it as you wish.

The Digital Wellbeing app has been downloaded more than half a million times, but recent user feedback reported welcome updates, including the “ distraction-free mode » or night mode, which makes the screen black and white at times when it seems good to you to pick up the smartphone.

Google began introducing new widgets to some of its applications, including Google Photos, Google Play Books, and YouTube Music, in December. The new Google Photographs People and Pets widget lets users customise their phones’ home screens with photos of their loved ones. It is possible to accomplish so by picking a few faces and a frame. YouTube Music has been updated with a Recently Played widget for Android 12 handsets. The widget has controls for play and pause, as well as a like button. Users of YouTube Music may obtain the widget in three different sizes, depending on their home screen layout.
