Many of us enjoy curling up with a good book before we decide to hit the hay for the night. Some people still prefer to look and smell of a physical book, some people have turned to an e-reader like a Kobo or Kindle. But for people who get their reading fix through a smartphone app, there arises the problem of the blue light. It makes sleep more difficult and of lesser quality. The newly updated Google Play Books app adds a feature called Night Light that addresses this issue by making the screen easier on your eyes.

Similar in some ways to the f.lux app you can get on Windows (I swear by it), the Night Light feature in Google Play Books will gradually decrease the amount of blue light emitted by your smartphone (or tablet) as you get closer to bedtime, increasing the light from the red-green spectrum. The net result is a screen that starts to look less white and more yellow or orange in tinge.

This should be a little easier on your eyes and it should have less of a detrimental effect on your sleep. The warmer, amber light of Night Light will automatically adapt to the natural sunlight you get in your area at the current time of year. It’s also better for low-light night reading too.

The new Night Light feature is available on both the iOS and Android versions of the Google Play Books app. Just hit up your respective app store to get the latest update and enable the feature in settings.
