Google releases ingenious Android function for new and old smartphones

Google has announced a multitude of new features for Android smartphones that can be used on new and old devices. One of them is really extremely practical and can be activated immediately - even if you are using an old cell phone.

Android smartphones are given the "Cheer up" function

Anyone who uses their smartphone intensively while on the move has probably run into a situation in which they almost run into a pillar or a person. This has actually happened to me before. Fortunately, I was able to react at the last moment. This is exactly the problem that Google is addressing with the "Cheers up" function . This was initially announced for Pixel smartphones at the beginning of the year, but is now available for all smartphones that use Android 9 or newer.

Specifically, the "head up" function is about the Android smartphone reminding you to raise your head if you stare at the display for too long. You can find the function in the settings under "Digital Wellbeing" . As soon as the smartphone notices that you are moving and looking at the display for too long, it warns you. Definitely a really handy feature that I've also activated now.
