Google rolls out new Android features to help improve your sleep


NEW DELHI: Google recently rolled out some new features for its Pixel devices and along with that the company has also announced that it is also updating some of its Android apps.
As part of the new features, the company has announced that its Digital Wellbeing app gets a new bedtime mode. With this new mode in place, your Android phone can stay dark and quiet while you sleep. While Bedtime mode is on, it uses Do Not Disturb to silence calls, texts, and other notifications that might disturb your sleep. Based on your bedtime schedule, you can choose to have it turn on automatically or after your phone is plugged in to charge. You can also add Bedtime mode to your phone’s Quick Settings panel to instantly turn it on or off with a single tap.
This new mode is available on all Android devices with Digital Wellbeing and parental control settings.
Along with this, the tech giant has also updated its Clock app. The Clock app now has a new Bedtime tab using which you can easily set daily sleep and wake times to maintain a consistent sleep schedule. In Clock, you’ll see a preview of tomorrow’s calendar and a tally of the total hours of sleep you’d get, and you can adjust your bedtime if needed. “To help you get to bed and fall asleep, you’ll receive a reminder before bedtime and an option to play calming sounds from Calm, Spotify, YouTube Music, and more,” said the company.
Apart from the above-mentioned features, Google has also introduced Family Link which helps you set digital ground rules for your children, including managing their screen time activity, app downloads, in-app purchases, and even bedtime for their device. You can create a daily bedtime schedule, adjusting it on certain days or weekends as needed. Once bedtime rolls around, your child’s device will lock, but will still allow calls in case your child needs to reach you.
