Google’s new Paper Phone helps you take a break from digital world


With smartphone addiction on the rise, Google has introduced a new Paper Phone app. Here’s how it works.

Google CEO Sundar Pichai last year introduced a “Digital Wellbeing” initiative under which the company aims to help users reduce addiction to the smartphones. Since the announcement at I/O 2018, Google has integrated Digital Wellbeing in its various apps and operating system (Pie and Android 10) as well. Google is now taking one step forward with a new “Paper Phone.”

Paper Phone is essentially an application which is aimed at helping users with digital detox. Part of ‘Experiments with Google’, the new application helps users by printing a personal booklet of the key information for the day.

For instance, Paper Phone can let you print your important contacts, maps and even meeting schedules on a sheet of paper. The app also lets you select between “paper apps” such as conversion charts, sign language, multiplication table, recipe and more. You can also save information in PDF format.
