A week after Instagram’s rollout of the “Time on Instagram” activity dashboard, Facebook has begun rolling out a similar feature for itself. This comes quite a bit after the social media company said it would, when reports of it first surfaced in June.
The implementation is similar to the one found on Instagram. Which is in turn is a lot like Google’s Digital Wellbeing, found on YouTube and Android 9 Pie. You can check the amount of time you spend on the app and even set soft limits on it. The limit then chimes in as a reminder that you’ve used it for longer than you wanted.
We already have this option on our Facebook app at the time of writing, and from the looks of it, the recorded time spent is strictly based on the device you’re using. It’s not on the web version of Facebook, and using it on a browser doesn’t seem to count towards the feature’s quota.
