Google have launched Digital Wellbeing features in newer Android versions, including Focus Mode. Focus Mode lets you select a list of allowed apps and block all others, during periods when you want to focus and avoid distractions.

According to this blog post by Google, it is possible to schedule Focus Mode:

Their feedback inspired us to include a few new features with today’s launch. For example, we’ve added an option to automatically turn Focus mode on and off for the days and times that you choose (e.g. from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekdays). This is especially handy for setting daily schedules; you can minimize distractions during the hours you’re at work, school or home.

My phone has Focus Mode, but it does not seem to have a way to schedule Focus Mode. How is Focus Mode scheduled on phones where this is supported?

  • @beeshyams The link doesn't instructions on scheduling. I'm interested in the answer for any Android phone, because I want to know what it looks like on phones where Digital Wellbeing is fully supported.

On one plus 7 Android 10,you can schedule this way: Digital Wellbeing & Parental control → Tap on Focus mode → on next screen select distracting apps → Set a schedule → Set schedule (set days of week and time) → turn on now. From 3 buttons menu you can also add a quick settings shortcut.
