Hello Mi Fans,
Smartphones have enhanced our lives in many ways. But you can have too much of a good thing, and there’s a growing realization that our smartphones can also detract from our lives. There has been a lot of debates over the ever-growing issue of smartphone addiction. To curb down the smartphone usage, Google has already announced digital wellbeing which is basically a suite of features designed to help you use your phone less.
And now, with the release of MIUI 10 9.4.18 Beta, Xiaomi has integrated its own iteration of the Digital Wellbeing for android pie based Xiaomi devices to monitor the frequency with which the display is switched on, which apps are used and how long. The graphs available are daily, weekly and monthly, giving the users the opportunity to have a broad view of their smartphone usage. Let's explore the feature in details:
How to view your screen time?
Just at the top you would find, how much time you have spent on the screen in a day. Beside that there are data for last 7 days and last 30 days respectively. There are also graphical presentations for better understanding and a visually appealing appearance. From the graphs you can easily have a look at the screen time for each day of the week as well as the month.
Apps' screen time:
Here, You can see a list of apps, on which you have spent most of your screen time. You can also have the relative playing time of each of those apps. This section even provides data for usage time of apps for last 7 days. So that you can have a clear understanding on your app usages and habits.

Screen Time Alert:
MIUI Scree Time allows you to set time limits. Once this limit is reached the following warning will appear on the screen: “You have been using your device for xx: xx today. Have some rest!”, Being able to extend the limit for another hour or accepting it and taking a break. It also has the ability to set a different screen time limit for weekdays and weekends. You can change the time limit as per your wish. I have set it 5 hours. What's yours?
That's all! Please note that, the feature is still in development and currently has been released only for the Android 9 Pie based MIUI 10 Beta ROM versions. If you have already received the update, enjoy the new screen time feature and keep an eye on your smartphone usage. Curb your smartphone addiction to spend more quality time with family and friends!
