    I think I looked at it once just to see what it is and never again. Everytime I go to setting, I see it and genuinely wonder if people out there really use it. Honestly, I think it's a wasted effort. Google should have invested in something different. Like how about giving us the ability to pull down notification menu by swiping down any where on the screen before Digital Wellbeing lol.

    What are your thoughts? do you really look at it? Has it changed the way you use your phone?
    Sure not me.

    It's OK but I don't feel the need to monitor my well being ... digital or otherwise.

    I used it in the beginning. Really helped me edit and purge a lot of useless "by the way..." notifications. I use my device primarily for information and communication, and I had way too many notifications hitting my Pixel 3. Once I got those down, I haven't really looked at it since ...

    I forgot it was a feature, lol.

    But I guess there would be some who use it.

    As far as I'm concerned, it's useless. I couldn't care less how much time I spend in front of the screen and none of it is going to make me change my device usage.

    You can see which apps are draining your battery in the settings battery area. There is another feature that tells you which apps you are hardly use turn files that can be cleaned up. I forget how to get to that.

    I think it's a way for Google to say: "look at us ... look at how much we care".

    That will be storage in settings.

    I have it enabled, and that's more for a reminder for me to put the phone down after a certain time. I rarely look at the stats, but now that I put an icon in the app drawer, I might look at it more.

    I can see it being used as a diagnostic tool , say you been in the app for 6 minutes the whole day but shows unusual high usuage in battery stats you know something going on with that app and needs to be addressed.

    Oh, and I use the wind down feature. I had forgotten about that. I haven't tried the 'flip to shush'. Most of the time that would be useful I just use DND if I'm in a meeting or something.

    Flip to Shhh is pretty cool. That's about all I use in DWB. I have a feeling I'm a light phone user compared to the average on here though!

    Flip to Shh was located outside of DWB when the phone was 1st released. It was part of Gestures. It got moved later on. Probably to give us a reason to use DWB? lol still thing the whole thing is a wasted money. Flip to Shh is useful though, but really has nothing to do with DWB. it is just a faster way to turn DND on.
