We’ve all heard various health experts tell us that reading on smart devices immediately bed is bad for sleeping habits, but for many of us, it’s the only time that we get to kick back and enjoyÂ a good book. In fact, Google says that peak reading times for its users is between the hours of 8pm and 10pm, a period that most health experts would be recommending you switch off your devices. Lucky then thatÂ Google Play Books has been updated with a “Night Light” feature that reduces the amount of blue light coming from your device’s display as the day goes on, making for more comfortable and safer reading later in the day, even in low-light.
To use thisÂ new feature, you’ll need the latest version of Play Books which is rolling out from today on all Android devices with it installed – you’ll probably need to keep an eye out for it over the next few days. To activate it, all you need to do is start reading and then select the Night Light option from the menu.
