[Tips] Steps to Use Focus Mode in Android 10

Hey Mi Fans,
How are you all? Are you enjoying Android 10? Do you know about its features? Well, tap here to know about Android 10 features. Today I'm going to share the trick for using Android 10's one of the cool feature named "Focus Mode", but first of all, you should know that what is Focus Mode. So why do waste time? Let's begin.

Focus Mode:
It’s basically a refined version of Do Not Disturb. It’s a mode that blocks notifications from specific apps while active, clearing away any open notifications from those apps, and stopping any further notifications from showing up while the mode is active. In addition, the offending apps will also be blocked during Focus Mode, stopping you from “accidentally” opening them when you should be doing something else.
Don’t worry about losing your notifications either, as previous notifications will be restored once you turn off the mode, in addition to any notifications that arrived while Focus Mode was active.

Enable Focus Mode:
Focus mode isn't available for everyone, so you have to be on the Digital Wellbeing beta to get the feature. Sign up to become a beta tester from here, and follow the steps below to enable the feature in Android 10:
  • Go to Settings  “Digital Wellbeing & parental controls”
  • Scroll down to “Ways to Disconnect”

You’ve got three choices here to help you manage your distraction level. Tap on each to set it up.
  • Dashboard lets you set timers for specific apps so that they will pause if you go past your allotted time.
  • Wind Down lets you avoid interruptions at night; you can use Night Light to tint the screen for dim lighting, have the app remind you that it’s time for bed by gray-scaling your screen, and put the Do Not Disturb mode in place, among other features.
  • Focus Mode (mentioned above) lets you immediately pause apps such as Facebook or Twitter so that you can concentrate on the task at hand.

Focus mode is a nifty feature, but it is tiresome to go three levels into the phone settings to enable the feature every time. Thankfully, you can just set up a tile in the notification shade. Here's how to do that:
  • Pull down on the notification shade twice.
  • Select the pencil icon on the left.
  • Scroll down to find more tiles.
  • Hold and drag the Focus mode tile to the quick settings pane.

Now you’ve done that, you’ll be able to simply access your Quick Settings and tap the Focus mode icon to turn the tool on. When Focus mode is active, the apps that you selected will be grayed out. Any unread notifications will be cleared away, and you won't get any new notifications for the duration the mode is active. It's a great way to eliminate distractions, which I can attest to.

I usually get constant notifications from Mi Community & Telegram, and while I got into the habit of enabling Do Not Disturb throughout the day to prevent getting distracted, Focus mode offers a more elegant solution. I just select the apps that I find distracting, and I no longer receive notifications from them while I'm working.

So Mi fans, Do you find anything useful in this thread?
