Chromebooks have a similar option to fl.ux, which can dim the screen according to the time of the day. If you’ve ever used Kindle’s Blue Shade, f.lux, or LineageOS’ LiveDisplay feature, then you know that this means. If you aren’t familiar with any of those, think a red-tinted mode for use at night. Night mode is now a popular feature on Apple and Windows, so it makes sense Chromebooks would have Night Mode too.
How to enable Night Light blue light filter on Chrome OS
Night Light is a feature that lets users avoid eye strain when using a screen late at night, and it is now available for Chrome users. Night Mode is simply a display setting for devices that adjust the color emitted from the screen to make reading and viewing easier on the eyes in low light or when you are using your device for extended periods of time.
Here’s how to enable the Night Light feature:
- Open a new tab, and type chrome://flags into the address bar.
- Hit Control+F on your keyboard to search for text in the page.
- Type Night Light to find the night light setting.
- Click Enable under the setting.
- Click Restart Now to restart the device so the setting can take effect.
Now, you’ll have the Night Light toggle available to you in the quick settings menu. If a little more customization is your style, there’s more you can do with your new-found feature. Head to the settings menu either through the system tray or by typing
chrome://settings in the url bar. Whichever you prefer.
