The Digital Wellbeing widget shows screen time and the most used apps


Following December’s new widgets for YouTube Music and Google Photos, Digital Wellbeing will soon get a Screen Time widget that shows how much you’ve spent on your phone and what top Android apps are being used.

About APK Insight: In this APK Insight post, we have decompiled the latest version of an application that Google has uploaded to the Play Store. If we decompile these files (called APKs in the case of Android apps), we can see different lines of code within this hint to possible future features. Keep in mind that Google may or may not ever ship these features, and our interpretation of what they are may not be perfect. However, we will try to enable those that are nearing completion to show you what they will look like should they ship. With that in mind, read on.

Version 1.0.416751293.beta from Digital Wellbeing reveals work on this new widget for your Screen Time. It’s not live yet after today’s update, but we managed to activate the homescreen object early.

Screen time is shown first, followed by the top three apps that day. Proportionally sized circles that tie in well with the Dynamic Color theme also accompany this list. The widget can be quite compact at 2×2 (or even 2×1 for an app-less view) but can be greatly expanded. If the widget is larger, the most used application is given below.

Digital Wellbeing’s Your Screen Time Widget is expected to be available for all Android phones and not just exclusive to Pixel phones.
