Almost everyone that reads digital books via smartphones or tablets experience the sharp effects of the bright screens on their eyes, and this makes it uncomfortable reading digital books in very low lights; and drifting off into peaceful slumber becomes quite a task.

But Google has developed a solution.

Greg Hartrell, Senior Product Manager, Google Play Books, announces the introduction of Night Light, a new feature from Google Play Books that is currently debuting on Android and iOS devices.

When the Night Light feature is activated, it dims the bright light of your device to correspond with the natural sunlight outside your home, making it easy for you to read in cool lights and perhaps drift off to a cool sleep.

The Night Light feature works by slowly filtering blue light from your digital screen, and then replacing this with a cool, amber light – synchronized to function in tandem with the setting sun. This means the more the sun sets, the more amber color lights up on your digital screen to make reading a pleasure – giving you the proper temperature and brightness to make reading fun.

To get the Night Light feature working on your smartphone or tablet, you must update your Google Play Books app to the latest version via Google Play or App Store. As soon as you open a book title, a pop-up will come up in your app and you can activate the Night Light mode here. Once this is done, the feature will work automatically, forever, to adjust screen color and light to suit the time of day as night sets in.
