Hi mi fans
Today I'm going to show you how to install Digital Wellbeing on your mi device running Android 9 Pie, But what is Digital Wellbeing I hear you ask well

If you’re not familiar with Digital Wellbeing, it’s a suite of features and controls that provide information about how you use your phone. It allows you to see a breakdown of which apps you use the most, how many notifications you recieve, screen unlocks, and more. You can also use controls to limit your usage if you feel that is a problem.

Firstly if you try to download the app via play store you may see this message

So install the apk from the link below
Attachment: Digital-wellbeing.apk
Once this is downloaded open your notification screen

And click the downloads notification
You should now see the download page, click open
On the next screen press install at the bottom of the screen
After that installs goto the play store and install a 'Shortcut Creator' (other shortcut creator apps work too)
Open the Shorcut Creator and select Applications
You will need to search for Digital Wellbeing as it will not be in the list of apps
After you have searched for Digital Wellbeing open the link in the Shortcut Creator

Once in look for App Activity and tap on Click to change
Now look for .home.TopLevelSettingsActivity and tap the play button next to it
Toggle the Show icon in the app list to on
Then select Dashboard
In Dashboard tap on Change in Settings
Find Digital Wellbeing and tap it
Now toggle Permit usage access to on
Now go to your home screen and if you have managed to read this far you can now enjoy Digital Wellbeing


Hope some of you find this useful If so don't forget to Like, Favourite or Comment

so, your post made me curious and I went on the play store and Digital Wellbeing is not even in the list, instead I got ActionDash; which apparently does more things (the picture and the article said). did you know about this?

I haven't found any negative impact on battery as far as I can tell it just displays details the phone collects anyway
