There have been reports from a few Pixel smartphone users lately who claim that disabling the Digital Wellbeing features on the device has a noticeable improvement in the performance. Google has now commented on the matter, saying that this isn’t the case. It maintains that there are no performance issues being caused by Digital Wellbeing on Pixel smartphones.

Google confirmed this through its official account on Reddit. The company says that it has conducted a “thorough analysis” of the software after users had started complaining about this and found that there are “no performance issues associated with the Digital Wellbeing app on Pixel.”

The Digital Wellbeing app is present on all Google Pixel and Android One smartphones in addition to a few devices from other manufacturers. It runs in the background and provides data to users such as the number of times they unlock the device and the time they spend on each individual app.

The company did acknowledge, though, that it did find problems unrelated to the bug reports about Digital Wellbeing that were impacting the performance. Google says that it’s in the process of rolling out the fixes to ensure that Pixel smartphones offer optimum performance.

Users were recommending others to disable Digital Wellbeing in order to improve the performance but Google has effectively said that it was nothing more than just a placebo effect.
