People have been talking for a while about the negative effects of a smartphone/tablet screen, on vision, but also about the effects those have on sleep, and how devices may cause sleep disorders. Many manufacturers are trying to find solutions, to stop the negative effects of blue light on users.
One of these solutions for desktops, let’s say – is the f.lux software.
Google has introduced a new feature for the Play Books app, which will help users when they want to read a book, on their smart devices at night. Such a function is provided by Amazon on Kindle tablets for a while now, and last week it received a new update.
This feature offered by Google Play Books is called Night Light, and because of the used algorithm, this function will adjust the light, depending on the light in the room, but will also take into account what time of day it is. Developers have used a blue light filter to develop this feature.
The update is available both for iOS and Android users, and can be downloaded from the AppStore or Google PlayStore.
