Change your screen color at night

To make it easier to look at your Pixel phone in dim light, you can reduce your screen’s blue color. Blue light can make it harder to fall asleep. Your screen will look red or amber, which can help your eyes adjust to night vision more smoothly.

Note: Some of these steps work only on Android 8.0 and up. Learn how to check your Android version.

Automatically change your screen color at night

  1. Open your device's Settings app Settings app.
  2. Tap Display and then Night Light.
  3. To pick start and end times, tap Schedule. (If you can't tap "Schedule," tap Turn on automatically.)
    • Custom time: Enter your "Start time" and "End time."
    • Sunset to sunrise: Use your current location’s sunset and sunrise times to control Night Light.

To stop night mode from turning on automatically, tap Schedule and then None. (If you don't see "None," tap Never.)

Change your screen color yourself at any time

  1. Open your device's Settings app Settings app.
  2. Tap Display and then Night Light.
  3. Turn Night Light on or off.
  4. Under "Intensity," adjust the color.

Tip: Night Light is available as a Quick Setting. Learn about Quick Settings.
