You can stop using your smartphone at night with a little help from Android. We know itâ€™s hard to let goâ€”even when research shows itâ€™s better for your sleep if you unplug and wind down. Android 11 includes a raft of features that can help you set some common-sense limits. Hereâ€™s how to get started.

The Digital Wellbeing hub contains many of the tools weâ€™ll use to make your phone less distracting at night, but for now, just check out your stats.
