    Has anyone revoked access to their digital well-being?

    I'm on day two and my phone seems to be handling ram way better than it has before.. It's also even smoother .. Also my battery seems to be more stable now.. I would like to know if anyone has done this and if they have, what type of benefits have they achieved.

    Interesting idea. I believe Jeremiah is talking about Usage Access. Go to Settings>Apps>Special App Access>Usage Access​, and turn off Digital Wellbeing's usage access there.
    @Jeremiah Bonds, I'll give it a try. I've never found any use for Digital Wellbeing anyway!

    Nice idea. I disabled it and see how it goes. It's not the Pixel 3 though.

    But you have a 2 XL, right? I don't think the 2 series had an issue with RAM.

    There was a Reddit thread/article on r/Android and r/GooglePixel saying that turning off usage access for digital well being resolves all stuttering and lag that plagues the Pixel 3.
    I turned off mine couple of days back after seeing that and doing fine here. I didn't have much issues to begin with other than the occasional lag in certain apps suddenly. I'll see how this goes.

    Yeah both 2xl and 3xl
    I never experience Ram issues on the 2xl, on 3xl was not able to load camera and you tube same time in beginning but was address with updates . But I never used digital well being and since the pixel 3xl we had post about it early on I said never used and disabled it .

    Disabled it the 2nd day i got my Pixel 3 @ launch and my device has always run great. I dont have any battery issues but im a low-medium user so its possible my usability is low...my battery could go two days. I honestly saw no benefits of using DWB, if anything its a processor hog for the benefit of Googles benefit to beta test or learn about use behaviors. Meh, disable it and be happy you did.

    Speaking of camera since Android Q beta 3 even beta 2 but more beta 3 the camera is super fast and being reliable. There was also an update today for timelapse and works great.

    Well, never had a problem with my phone's memory on the phone itself since Android keep better came out, just turned off you suggest to visual bang I'm going to continue testing a report back if I see any other civil changes or differences. Now, it's far as my using digital thing it's nice to unwind at the end of the night but if that means performance takes a hit then screw it.

    well, slight update. Just turned digital wellbeing off and tried l my Android Auto again and still crashing but I already submitted another second bus log to Google developers so hopefully they fix it ASAP! I'll be on the lookout to see if it see any other changes, or improvements.

    Good to hear, i never had an issue with the camera loading a few split seconds longer than it should but any improvement is welcome. I havent beta tested Android pre-release since Android 7 (when 6 was out) and dont have plans to, but looking forward to Q when it officially releases.

    Yes, so so far, in beta 3, I've noticed that overall performance as much smoother, switching between applications between the most two or three reason applications is just one swipe away, and the sharing menu opens up a lot faster now.

    The main camera issue for me wasn't the launching of the camera yeah it was slower than now but what sucked was when I would got snap a picture there would be like a 2-3 sec delay at times. Same for recording video it would lag for a second or so making the first 2 secs if the video look choppy and losing crazy frame rate for that split second. So I'd always edit the video and cut out the first 2 seconds to remove that initial lag, however that and also apps not using seem to be working great at the moment.

    You know, the digiwell being being off I think is more of a performance issue in pie versus Android Q.

    From what I've heard, performance issues on pixel 3. I think it's more of a pie thing though.

    Im on Pie and have had DWB disabled since launch, curious to know what problems there would be. If anything i am betting it improved my performance rather than hampering it. If you come across examples id be curious to check on my side thanks.

    I just saw some Reddit posts and other people on this form saying that they had it on and then turned it off when they were on pie and it improved their performance. I turn mine back on ..I'm on Q beta 3.

    Ok so just to be clear there are no known issues with it being OFF...being ON caused performance issues, and turning it off improved performance. Similar to recent article on this site, so we're on same page.
