Google Play Books gets a handy Night Light feature in latest update

Google Play Books is getting a Night Light feature in its latest update, which will allow the app to automatically recognize how bright it is and adjust brightness and temperature of the screen accordingly.

Published onDecember 15, 2015


Google Play Books is one of the best apps available on Android for reading books, but sometimes the app can be annoying to use late at night. This is why Google today introduced an update to Play Books that brings along with it a new Night Light feature, which will make reading your favorite stories at night much easier on the eyes.

When the Night Light feature is turned on, the app will gradually filter blue light from your screen and replace it with a warm, amber light as the sun sets. The feature will automatically adapt to the amount of natural sunlight outside based on the time of day, which will allow you to read the text on your screen in just the right brightness and temperature.

Turning on the feature is easy, too. Just update your Google Play Books app to the latest version, open a book, and enable Night Light by tapping on the pop up. After it’s been turned on, Night Light will stay on and continue to adjust for the perfect setting.

Night Light is rolling out to Android and iOS readers starting today. Be sure to head to the Play Store link below to grab the latest version!
