Android 10 will be launched on selected phones. As is usual with a major Android update, your device's existing repertoire will be enhanced with a number of new features from tools. But with even more new features for social media, games, and messaging apps, the constant buzzing and beeping of your phone can remove you from what's really important.
Google knows that and has added a feature to make sure you do not let yourself be distracted by a constant barrage of memes and funny videos. Whether you want to focus on work, take time with the family, or just want to lose some of your time, you can cut out the chaff in Android 1
What is the focus mode?
But what exactly is focus mode? Basically, it's a refined version of Do Not Disturb. In this mode, notifications are blocked from certain apps while they are active, removing open notifications from those apps, and preventing further notifications from being displayed while the mode is active. In addition, the offensive apps are blocked in focus mode, so you can not "accidentally" open them if you should do something else.
Do not worry about losing your notifications as previous notifications will be restored once You disable the mode in addition to notifications that came in while focus mode was active.
Sign up for the beta
Although Android 10 was introduced, focus mode is not yet available. Google is apparently still working on the final overhaul of its distraction tool and is therefore only available in the beta version of the Digital Wellbeing app.
If you would like to go to beta to gain access to this focus mode, then it's easy. Visit the Google beta website and apply to join the beta. Then go to Digital Wellbeing in the Play Store on your Android device to download the beta update. Once you've done so, you'll have access to the Focus Mode through the updated Digital Wellbeing app. Access to the mode will be via Google's Digital Wellbeing app. So you need to know how to use Google's Time Management Wellness App. We have described this in detail in our Digital Wellbeing Manual. In short, you can quickly access Digital Wellbeing by opening your app Settings and then tapping Digital Wellbeing & Parental Control .
To simplify future access to Digital Wellbeing, scroll down the Digital Wellbeing main menu and select the option for Show Icon in App List . This will make Digital Wellbeing appear in your app list, making it easier to find.
How to enable focus mode
Once you've opened Digital Wellbeing and simplified access, focus mode activates extremely easily. Just go to your Digital Wellbeing App – either via Settings> Digital Wellbeing & Parental Control or via your App List – and then tap on the Focus Mode option under the Separation options Submenu. Once you have opened it, tap the blue button Turn on now to start the focus mode.
Adding and removing apps from focus mode
However, if you turn it on, you can not do anything about it, not saying what to ignore. Focus mode works best when it blocks the apps that distract you the most. By default, however, no apps are blocked. Instead, you have to do that. Check the box next to the app's name in the main menu Focus Mode to block apps notifications when focus mode is active. It will then be displayed under a submenu Your distracting apps . To remove an app, clear the check box to display the notifications in focus mode.
How to Start Focusing Mode Easily
Opening the Digital Wellbeing App, if you want to switch focus mode quickly, is not the fastest of processes. So why not add a quick change to your quick settings above the notification shadow each time? To do so, drag down on the screen to open the notification shadow, and then drag down again to open the quick settings. Tap the pencil icon at the bottom left of the window, then scroll down the page until you press and drag sub-menu to add tiles . From there, locate the tile Focus Mode and drag it to the menu above to add it to your Quick Settings.
Now you can easily access your Quick Settings Tap the Focus Mode icon to turn on the tool.
