Change your screen colour at night

To make it easier to look at your phone in dim light, you can reduce your screen’s blue colour. Blue light may 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 9 and up. Learn how to check your Android version.
