Digital Wellbeing is a measure to help users achieve the right balance with technology. But unfortunately, Digital Wellbeing is only available for Pixel and Android One devices. The Samsung Galaxy S10 was the first non-Pixel or non-Android One phone to get Digital Wellbeing out of the box.

So what about your OnePlus phone? Well, you need not to worry! We have a solution to this problem that doesn’t even require rooting your device. Follow the below steps to get Digital Wellbeing on all OnePlus phones running on Android Pie.

Since this technique doesn’t involve rooting the phone, you will miss out on some features of the Digital Wellbeing application that require privilege settings. These privilege settings can only be granted if your phone is rooted. Wind Down and App Timers are two features that won’t work. But nevertheless, you can still track metrics to know how much time you’re spending on your phone.
