The feature is called Digital Wellbeing which is simply an overseer, which will record how much time do we use the phone and how much time do we spend time on certain apps. App Timers will let you limit your time on the certain app, and it will remind you after you have been using the app excessive than the entered period. Wind Down feature is another good feature which enables Do Not Disturb feature, which in turn makes the screen grayscale around bedtime. Users can manually switch to Do Not Disturb mode when they are busy.

Google started the beta program of this feature back in August, and it was available to Pixel users as a part of an exclusive beta. The feature is now available for Pixel phone users and Android One users with Android 9 Pie, downloadable from Google Play Store. Apple also provided similar features for iPhone users back in June.
