Apple and Google have introduced digital well-being features in their devices to help users disconnect and limit screen time.

Android devices, such as Google Pixel and Samsung Galaxy, also offer the option to set time limits for each app.
Users can tap "Ignore Limit" if they have something urgent to do on the app.
Android devices allow users to establish a bedtime routine that alerts them to put their device down according to their schedule.
Disconnecting and Setting Boundaries: These digital wellness settings aim to help users disconnect and establish healthier screen time habits.
Taking Control of Screen Time: By utilizing these settings, users can track their screen time, set timers, and receive alerts to step away from their devices.
