Android Pie's Digital Wellbeing features are now available for Pixel and Android One devices

At Google I/O this year, the Mountain View company announced a new feature for its Android operating system which would let users manage the time they spend on their phone. The feature has been replicated by a number of services, and it aims to promote the digital wellbeing of users, helping them get away from potential addictions to technology.

Despite being announced all the way back in May, it didn't show up as part of the release of Android Pie later in the summer, but now it's finally rolling out to the general public. 9to5Google reports that the Digital Wellbeing app is available for users outside of the beta program, though there are still a few restrictions as to who can install it.

You'll need to be on the latest release of Android, which is a pretty big limitation by itself seeing as only a handful of phones are running it. Additionally, you have to be using either a Pixel phone or a device that's part of the Android One program such as the Nokia 7 Plus.

If you meet the requirements above, you can download the Digital Wellbeing app from the Play Store to start keeping an eye on your smartphone activity. If you're not, you can always hope that Google will expand its availability in the near future.
