Digital well-being Google is an application that allows us monitor Y control a lot of aspects such as the total time we spend with our mobile, the individual time we spend with each app, the number of notifications that have come to us throughout the day, as well as the number of times we unlock the mobile daily. Thanks to this information that is offered to us in a very visual way, we can get an idea of whether we spend a lot of time with the mobile or not.
This app allows us configure multiple settings to rest of our device and help us disconnect Y focus on in real life. The application has a job profile, and offers us different ways to disconnect and reduce the interruptions daily It also has a section of cparental control, to be able to keep our children under a track of mobile use.
How to set up Google Digital Wellness
Setting up this application is quite simple and intuitive. First, we must download the application from the Google app store, whose link I leave below:
Once downloaded, we open it. The user interface is as follows:
As we see it is a very visual and intuitive interface which gives us information about every aspect of the usage time we give to each application of our mobile.
First, we can configure the section control Panel. This can help us to place a timer About the app we want. We click on control panel, and if for example we waste a lot of time with Instagram, we can put a maximum daily usage time by clicking on the hourglass icon on the right and we set a maximum time that we believe is convenient. Once that time is over we will leave a notice That is enough for today:
We can also establish a rest mode and a mode without distractions. The rest mode allows us to establish a start and end time in which we want to activate a light filter blue and / or a grayscale filter so that, at night for example, the light does not bother us in sight and alters the vital rhythms. The Distracted Mode allows us to set a schedule for avoid notifications in the applications that are annoying because they distract us from our daily tasks and obligations, such as work or study, which is often diminished by the typical notifications of groups and mentions of Whatsapp or Instagram.
The next thing we can do is manage notifications of our device, allowing us to deactivate those that we consider unnecessary, as simple as that. Secondly, the application allows us to configure a do not disturb mode, in which we can select a time interval where we will only receive notifications and calls from whoever interests us, being able to configure the profiles of sound, silence and vibration to our liking.
Finally, we can configure a Parental control to have full knowledge of the applications our children use and how much time they invest in them. It is very simple to configure, and only requires an extra app (family link) to monitor your smartphone screen from ours.
