Smartphone usage among users is going out of the chart. All Smartphone companies understand this and they are trying their best to allow users to control their usage. OnePlus recently launched Zen Mode with OnePlus 7 Pro which allows users to stop using their smartphone completely. Once you turn on the Zen Mode, you can only use the camera app and receive phone calls.
OnePlus surprised everyone with two new smartphones this year. OnePlus 7 Pro and the OnePlus 7. They also launched tons of new features with these smartphones. Earlier on Droidviews, we covered 5 new features of OnePlus 7 Pro. Zen mode was one of the features we talked about in this article. Today, we show you how to get the Zen Mode feature on any OnePlus device.
ZenMode is the new feature released with OnePlus 7 Pro. It is focused on decreasing the screen time of users. ZenMode restricts the user from using any other application. During the Zen Mode, you can only use camera application and receive phone calls. You can also make emergency phone calls if needed. It also restricts notifications from all other applications.
When the Zen Mode is turned on, you can only see the remaining time on the lock screen and home screen. Over a period of time, you can see the gradient on the screen turning to cooler colors. Zen Mode also reminds you to take your time off if you’re using the device continuously for 2 hours. You can also customize on when you want the Zen Mode to remind you.
