Although Google's Digital Wellbeing is now out of Beta, there is still a major problem with it: Android Oreo users cannot use it, since this app is only available for Android Pie devices. Even worse, to be sure that this app works as intended, you'd better try it on a Google Pixel with Android Pie onboard.
Thankfully, everyone with Android Pie can now at least try Google's Digital Wellbeing. After installing the app — which can be downloaded from Google Play, of course — you should be able to find it in the Settings area, near Accessibility. To access the app via a standard icon, you need to scroll down in Digital Wellbeing and tap the "Show icon in the app list" toggle.
If you never encountered this app so far, you should know that Digital Wellbeing is all about giving you an accurate overview of your digital life and helping you to decrease the amount of wasted time.
If you are one of the few Google Pixel users who are already enjoying the benefits of Digital Wellbeing, feel free to drop a comment and share your experience with the rest of us. If not, it seems we are all going to wait a few more months until — hopefully — our handsets receive Android Pie and full Digital Wellbeing support.
