• The Night Light feature has gotten a small but interesting improvement in Android P Developer Preview 1.
  • Now the Night Light icon shows the time when it will automatically start.
  • This means you won’t have to dive into the Settings menu to find that time.


One of the more useful features in previous Android releases has been Night Light, which is designed to cut down on the blue light coming from an owner’s phone. This means the light coming from the phone is easier on a person’s eyes, and thus it won’t keep them up when its time to go to bed.

Night Light can also be adjusted in the Settings menu so it turns on and off automatically at a pre-set time. However, if you didn’t remember what times you had set up, you had to go into the phone’s settings to find out those times.

It looks like Google has had some feedback on this issue, because the Android P Developer Preview 1 build, which was released earlier today, now lets users see when Night Light turns on just by looking at its icon in the much more accessible Quick Settings menu.

It’s a small addition to Night Light, but we bet it will be a welcome one for folks who use it frequently. What do you think of Android P adding this feature to the Night Light Quick Settings icon?
