There is no doubt that smartphones have changed not only the way we had to communicate, but also our day-to-day organization. In addition, these devices have given rise to new forms of entertainment, leaving aside the traditional consoles with the arrival of countless mobile video games that allow us to enjoy hours of entertainment wherever we are.
Even so, if it is true that many times we make excessive use of the smartphone . Whether browsing social networks, watching YouTube videos or even neglecting our social life, giving more importance to other applications that only allow us to meet people through a screen.
Focus, a new functionality that will prevent us from spending too many hours in front of the smartphone
In the face of this, Xiaomi has developed a new functionality included in the latest open beta of MIUI 11, called " Focus Mode ". Specifically, the main objective of this new functionality is to avoid being distracted by the content displayed on our smartphone and we can concentrate completely on other tasks we want to perform.
In detail, Focus allows us to adjust a time interval, either 20, 30, 40, 50, 60 or even 90 minutes. Once activated and while it lasts we can only perform certain actions with our smartphone such as receiving and making calls or taking photographs . In addition, in this period of time we will not receive notifications of other installed applications, so we do not divert our view to the terminal screen, allowing us to fully concentrate on another activity.
Without a doubt, a very interesting functionality that proves once again that Xiaomi continues to think about the health and digital goods of its followers. For now, this new option is only available in the open beta of the Chinese ROM of MIUI 11 although it is very likely that it will arrive shortly to other Custom ROMs such as the Xiaomi EU.
