During the developer conference, Google announced greater integration between the Digital Wellbeing and Family Link. With the latest Beta version of Android Q, the Mountain View giant has begun to give substance to its intentions by integrating parental control directly into the settings section dedicated to Digital Wellbeing.
Family Link is the application that allows parents to set limits for their children to use smartphones. With the future version of the green robot system, in practice, the user will have both services available on a single screen simply by accessing the Digital Wellbeing section starting from the Settings.
Android Q: The user can set both the limits for himself and the restrictions for his children
This is not a sensational innovation, but simply a way to facilitate access to two different but complementary services. However, the application must be previously installed on the device. But in a single screen, it will be possible to configure everything the user wants. He can set both the limits for himself and the restrictions for his children.
With Android Q it will be possible to set in which days the Wind Down function will be activated. It is the option that activates the Do Not Disturb mode and transforms the display into grayscale. With the aim of making the use of social media applications less enjoyable. The new features are only available on the Android Q beta 5 and work with the latest version of Digital Wellbeing.
