You can now try out a key new feature from Android Q by installing a new app. ActionDash, an app that more or less clones Google’s Digital Wellbeing features, has been updated to include a “focus mode” that works exactly like the focus mode that’s being built into the next version of Android.

replicated Digital Wellbeing’s data features, allowing you to see how long you’ve been using all of your apps on a daily or weekly basis. It’s helpful info, but it’s a lot more useful when paired with controls that let you set limits on your usage.

ActionDash comes from the developer of Action Launcher, which replicates a lot of the features found on Google’s default Android home screen, but with more customization options mixed in.
