We all are a bit habitual of Facebook, and we all pretty much this too that how addicting the feed can be once you are in that space. And using an app not only Facebook can be very harmful from time to time and in different scenarios. So, the new Facebook Quite Mode is here to help users spend less time on the app.
Facebook Quite Mode
We have already seen a similar thing in our Android phone that is called as Focus Mode in the Digital Wellbeing app which is mostly available in every smartphone which has at least Android 9 as their base OS.
On the 16th of March, a tweet by @wongmjane said that Face is working and testing the new Your Time on Facebook and that will include the Quiet Mode for a specific amount of time and the Scheduled Quiet Mode.
Facebook is testing a new “Your Time on Facebook” adding: – Quiet Mode for a specific amount of time – Scheduled Quiet Mode Facebook told me (via @alexvoica) that they’ve been testing it for a few months and will continue to test and iterate
And now it is officially here, Facebook has rolled out several new features under its ‘Your Time on Facebook’ dashboard. The most prominent of those is ‘Quiet Mode’, which mutes push notifications and even reminds users to get some time off the app.
“We added Quiet Mode, which mutes most push notifications, and if you try to open Facebook while in Quiet Mode, you’ll be reminded that you set this time aside to limit your time in the app,” Facebook said.
With Quiet Mode enabled, you will be able to turn off notifications for new messages and more on the app. It will also give you better data regarding how much time you actually spend on Facebook, giving correct info of the past few hours and what you did in those last few hours on the app. You can no longer be watching unnecessary videos on the app and wasting your data on them. You can either manually set the Quiet Mode window of predefine certain hours of the day.
The company is most likely to add the insights of usage of the app during the day, during the night as well as weekly stats of your usage of the app.
The update is rolling out slowly so do expect that everyone will not get it right away.
This actually isn’t a totally new feature, it works on the time management tools that Facebook had launched a couple of years ago. And moreover, the majority of the new smartphone already have the option for digital wellbeing that gives you insights into your time spent on various apps.
