At the Android 7.0 Nougat Developer Preview, one feature that impressed me the most was a system-wide Night Mode. It is very helpful in letting you use your device at nights or low-light situations.

Night Mode prevents the eyes from straining. Hence, you are able to have a better sleep. This mode was hidden in the run-up to Nougat’s release. Nonetheless, there is a trick through which you can get some of its nice features.

Though the system-wide dark theme is not available, Nexus devices powered by Nougat (5X, 6, 6P, 9, Pixel C) can get a blue light filter. Willing to try it out on your device? Let’s head over the jump!
