Digital Wellbeing presents a new Heads Up feature
Google is preparing a useful update for the Digital Wellbeing app, now required for smartphones running Android 10 and above.
Digital Wellbeing will soon present Heads Up (can be translated as “Watch Out” and “Raise Your Head”). Fans have discovered screenshots with it and other “evidence” in the firmware code for the new beta of Digital Wellbeing. The meaning is simple: the function detects if the user has burrowed into the smartphone while on the move and displays an alert with a warning.
It is noted separately in the parameters that the function alone is not sufficient; you should also pay attention to your surroundings. The date on which the Heads Up feature will be available to ordinary Digital Wellbeing users has not yet been announced.
Google launched the Digital Wellbeing app for Android in 2018, and it became a staple for new Android 10 smartphones in January 2020. Digital Wellbeing is designed to help control digital addiction and time spent on gadgets.
