Greetings from Mi Community Bangladesh Tech Team. Digital Wellbeing is a fantastic tool for managing your smartphone usage but a very minor update now turns apps grayscale just before they “time out.”
If you set a daily app timer on certain time-sink apps through Digital Wellbeing say Twitter or Instagram or YouTube the app's usage is limited to that specific amount. After you've used up your allocation, you can't open it or receive notifications from it.
When you reach your limit set within Digital Wellbeing, the application will steadily turn grayscale to give you a visual indication of your looming lockout. Only the app that you have set limits on will have a grayscale theme applied, the rest of your Android system UI will be in full color making you hyper-aware of your usage.
This grayscale mode is screenshotable, unlike the full-system grayscale that Digital Wellbeing applies when Bedtime mode which switches your entire Android system into an eye-saving two-tone color. So it seems that the mechanism in which it's applied is different on the OS level. That's the only quirky thing I noticed about it.
With that in mind, this change appears to be rolling out as part of the Digital Wellbeing version 1.32 beta update. It might not be the biggest tweak but it might help you manage and police your application usage even more accurately in the future.
