On March 26, 2020, Magandang Buhay aired live via Zoom due to the COVID-19's enhanced community quarantine in Luzon.[4] The show got suspended on May 5, 2020, after ABS-CBN ceased its free-to-air broadcast operations as ordered by the National Telecommunications Commission (NTC) and Solicitor General Jose Calida.[5] as a compliance to President Rodrigo Duterte's objection to its franchise bid.

On June 15, 2020, Magandang Buhay resumed its live studio broadcast on pay cable-and-satellite via Kapamilya Channel.[6] The show later changed its time slot to 10:30 AM on October 19, 2020, following its simulcast on free-to-air channel A2Z.[7] A week later, October 26, the show's runtime reduced to 60 minutes, airing it at 11:00 AM.[8]

On June 14, 2021, Magandang Buhay returned to its 9:00 AM timeslot.[9] Estrada left the show following her congress bid; and was replaced by a number of female celebrities such as Regine Velasquez and Judy Ann Santos.
