Samsung is helping Galaxy Note8 owners find balance in turning off their tech to devote time to other activities such as connecting with important people in their lives.
Today's world is defined by our "always on" culture. But in some cases, keeping yourself offline is essential. With the new THRIVE App, Samsung is empowering people to disconnect, in order to have a balanced relationship with technology.
With THRIVE, you can do want you want without the distraction and temptation of checking your phone. Simply turn your device on "Thrive Mode," and set it to 20, 30 or 60 minutes - however much time you need. If you get a call or text while you're in Thrive Mode, you won't have to stop what you're doing to check the notifications. THRIVE automatically replies to your incoming messages by letting the receiver know that you are in Thrive Mode at the moment and when you'll be online again. That way, you won't have to stop what you're doing to check the notification - you'll be able to carry on without being interrupted and having to pick back up where you left off.
The Thrive app is rolling out to Samsung Galaxy Note8 users starting today.
