How to schedule dark mode on Android

We’ve all been through this. It’s late at night; You open your phone and you are blinded by its intense white light. Even with adjusted brightness, the white glare from your phone’s traditional user interface can be too much for your eyes. Fortunately, Dark Mode is here to save the day.

A dark mode is designed to reduce the amount of light emitted by your phone’s screen while maintaining good legibility of the text. Not only does it make your phone’s screen more comfortable in low light, but it can also help to extend battery life and reduce glare.

How to set a custom dark mode schedule on Android

While dark mode was originally intended to be used at night and in low light, it has a loyal fan base who uses it all the time. It’s easy to turn Dark Mode on permanently if you prefer its daytime aesthetic, but you can also set a Dark Mode schedule on your phone if you only want to turn it on at certain times.

By enabling dark mode on your phone and setting a custom schedule, your phone will automatically go into dark mode during the hours you choose. This can be especially useful when a sunset-to-sunrise schedule doesn’t suit your needs.

Manage your phone at night

Setting a schedule for dark mode on your phone is just one way to improve usability at night or in low light. To reduce eye strain and prevent your phone from disturbing your sleep, you can also turn on a blue light filter. As in dark mode, it is possible to permanently activate the blue light filter on your phone or set it to a custom schedule.

If you find that your phone is routinely disturbing your sleep, turn it off or, even better, move your phone to another room when you go to bed. Getting enough sleep at night is important for your physical and mental wellbeing and shouldn’t be overlooked.
