In the last few hours, Microsoft has published a new Xbox update for subscribers to the “Alpha Skip-Ahead” users of the Xbox Insiders program that introduces a new and most awaited feature: Night Mode.
Xbox Night Mode will be available soon
According to the official Xbox Wire blog post, it seems that Microsoft is working on a new “Night Mode” feature for its Xbox consoles. This feature, however, has already arrived for the Xbox Insiders, which is currently in the test phase. The Xbox Insider program usually allows its users to preview some features in advance still under development.
As per reports, the Night Mode on Xbox consoles will allow players to enhance their gaming experience overnight. This night mode will allow you to apply filters to the screen, but also decrease the brightness of the LED lights on the console and controllers.
“Night Mode has now been added as a new feature in Settings! Users can now dim and filter their screen, as well as dim their console & controller LED brightness. Please note that localization is still pending, so the feature is currently only available in English,” reads the Xbox announcement post.
There is also the option to apply a blue light filter so you don’t compromise sleep quality even when you decide to play late. Those who have had the opportunity to try the feature were very satisfied.
In addition, below you can also see a video from The Verge reporter Tom Warren showing the Night Mode in action.
