If you drink, do not drive and if you walk, don’t fix your eyes on the mobileYou can trip, crash, or cross the road without being careful. If you know you have a problem with this and want to fix it, Google Digital Wellbeing will give you a clue with a new feature called Heads up in English, a pun between the meaning of the warning and the lifting of the head.
Heads Up is not yet available, although it was discovered by XDA among the code for the latest version of Google Digital Wellbeing, and this is an optional disclaimer to prevent you from looking at the mobile screen while walking.
Look where you are
Google Digital Wellbeing is preparing a new utility so you can self-monitor your mobile usage while walking down the street. Like the rest of the digital welfare functions, this is not an imposition, but help for those who want to limit this behavior. In other words, it is optional.
The function is called in English Heads up and it is not yet ready for users, although through some screenshots we can get a pretty rough idea of how it works. When activated, the the mobile alerts you when you use the mobile while walking.
For its operation, Digital Wellbeing needs permission to access information about physical activity – necessary to recognize when you are walking – and, possibly, location. At the moment we have not been able to see how is the opinion in question
This news should come in a future app update, perhaps along with other new features that were discovered in previous versions that have not yet materialized, such as the live wallpaper, which adds a cloud every time you unlock the phone during the day. Until then, try to remember not to walk with a fixed screen on your mobile.
