Oneplus also introduced Zen mode this year with oxygen OS. Zen mode is an inspired version of Google's Digital Wellbeing. It does the same job as Digital wellbeing but as Google is currently not offering this features on all devices, thus oneplus launched their own. In zen mode we can also customize time limits in which we can't use our phone for a particular time, like we can set a minimum of 20 min timer or more than that and make our-self detached from the digital world for that particular period.

So this are certain measures which can control our daily life style and issue's. So we can say that technology is improving better and better without disturbing our livelihood.
