In the past two years, Google has solved the problem of cell phone addiction through initiatives such as digital wellbeing, according to foreign media Neowin. Since then, Google has made many improvements and adjustments to this feature.Recently, we've seen some additional features, such as "focus" mode, a 30 minute pause in wind down, and the launch of an independent program called "digital health experiment.".



Activity Bubbles

Screen Stopwatch

First, Envelope is now only supported on Pixel 3a, which converts the phone into a device capable of doing basic work. This may seem interesting; people will basically print out an envelope and insert Pixel 3a into it. The fingerprint reader and the main camera that are packed into the envelope phone are still available, allowing people to call, view the time and take some photos and videos, but all need to be noted. The video demo of the app is as follows:

In addition, the Activity Bubbles app uses bubbles to visualize the use of mobile phones, which can increase with the increase of cell phone usage time. ScreenStopwatch functions like this, but it shows how long people use their phones. From the moment the phone is unlocked, the app starts timing, like Activity Bubbles, which displays that time on the home screen via dynamic wallpaper.


All three apps are part of the digital health experiment, which people can download for free at the play store. However, as mentioned earlier, envelope is now a proprietary product of pixel 3a.
