The New York Times, old guard or not, is still a huge source of news to a lot of people and to the company's credit, it's paying a decent amount of attention to its mobile apps. Now the publication is issuing an update that brings a night mode that inverts the colors for easier night reading. As someone who likes to minimize the amount of bright white light blasting into my eyes, I appreciate the option.Read More
New York Times App Updated With A Night Mode And Customizable Widget was written by the awesome team at Android Police.
Everything is better with a night mode. Android apps. Dimmer switches. Enthusiast tech blogs. Fast food drive-through menus. Taking this irrefutable and universal fact and applying it to the feature-rich Opera Mini browser is a no-brainer, so that's exactly what the developers did. But don't get too excited: the new Night Mode doesn't affect the colors or layout of web pages, as some other apps do. Nope, it's just custom brightness settings and a slightly yellow color filter if you enable the "reduce eye strain" setting.Read More
Opera Mini Update Adds Night Mode, Page Titles In The Address Bar, And Speed Dial/Open Tab Syncing was written by the awesome team at Android Police.
The Clock app doesn't get a ton of updates, but when it does there's almost always something worth talking about. The latest version does a little bit of everything with a little bit of visual polish and updates for the Android Wear app. As usual, there's a link at the bottom if you'd like to grab this version before it rolls out to your devices in due time.Read More
When it comes to podcast applications, we often talk about Pocket Casts and BeyondPod here on Android Police, but one of the unsung heroes of the category is Player FM. The free app has over 1M downloads on the Play Store, a web client, Google+ sign in, and a lot of cool features to keep podcast fans happy. It's usually my first recommendation as a free podcast client, especially for those who are new to the medium and want to see what it's all about.Read More
Player FM 3.1 Adds Black Theme, Subscription Sorting, And "Downloaded Only" View was written by the awesome team at Android Police.
A fresh version of the Android Support Library is now available to developers. This may be one of the biggest updates in quite a while, as some of the changes demand a few significant internal changes. On the plus side, there aren't very many changes that should break existing code, and most of the new features will make it worth the trouble. Here's a quick introduction to some of the new changes.Read More
Android Support Library v23.2 Adds Auto-Switching Day/Night Theme, Support For Vector Drawables, And Much More was written by the awesome team at Android Police.
When we got our first peek at Android M in the dev preview last year, many of you were elated to see an option for Night Mode in the OS. After all, that white settings UI is unpleasant to look at in the dark. Google pulled Night Mode before the final build came out, but it's back in the Android N preview. It's also much more robust.
In the M preview, Night Mode was in the developer settings.Read More
Android N Feature Spotlight: Night Mode Is Back With Expanded Features Including A Red Filter And Lower Brightness was written by the awesome team at Android Police.
We've got another tidbit from our time at Google's Android office hours here at I/O, and you're probably not going to like it, Nexus owners. Speaking to Dan Sandler, we were told that night mode and the dark theme were both simply not up to the standard of performance and polish that Google wants to see of features in this release. As such, according to Dan, it is very unlikely either feature will ship when N is released in final form later this year.Read More
Night Mode And Dark Theme Are Very Unlikely To Ship In Android N was written by the awesome team at Android Police.
Quick settings is the site of major improvements in Android N—there's a new row of five toggles along the top of the notification shade, the quick settings can be rearranged, and you can even add new tiles. The latest Android N Dev Preview 3 brings more improvements and tweaks to quick settings.
There are now two more developer-focused toggles for "show layout bounds" and "profile GPU rendering." Those features are already available in developer tools, but now they're easier to use.Read More
Android N Developer Preview 3 Has Two New Dev-Focused Quick Settings, And The Missing Night Mode Is Still (Sort Of) Accessible was written by the awesome team at Android Police.
About a month ago, some Twitter users started spotting a night mode in their Twitter app that transformed the entire interface into a dark blue shade. The change was triggered server-side, meaning it showed up inconsistently across different Twitter beta and alpha versions, but it didn't seem like there was a way to revert it back to a light theme on request.
Now, more users are reporting this dark theme, except Twitter seems to have introduced a specific toggle in the app's drawer for Night mode.Read More
Twitter starts showing a Night Mode toggle on Android was written by the awesome team at Android Police.
Twitter started testing a dark UI mode several months ago, but it was a server side toggle on beta and alpha builds with no way to guarantee it would be on your device. The test must have gone well because today Twitter announced dark mode as an official feature of the Android app. This should be available on all installations of the Twitter app soon.
Because Twitter has ridiculous UI fragmentation across its various test builds, you'll find the night mode toggle in the navigation menu, which is accessed either by your profile photo or the standard slide-out icon.Read More
Night mode UI finally comes to stable version of Twitter was written by the awesome team at Android Police.
The saga of Night Mode on Android is a bit of a dramatic story that started with a sneak peek in Android M, disappeared, returned again in N dev previews, only for our excitement to be short lived as we learned that it might not make it to the final release. And make it, it didn't. With the latest dev previews and Nougat's official release, the signs of Night Mode started disappearing one by one.Read More
Night Mode Enabler is a simple app that brings back Night Mode and its tile to Android Nougat was written by the awesome team at Android Police.
Setting up and using 2-factor authentication on a Google account used to be a fairly miserable affair. The sign-in process lurched from a native interface into a browser where users were expected to quickly enter codes, various apps weren't compatible and required special 1-time use passwords, and the app for generating codes felt completely unfinished. These days, all of those problems have been solved, and now Google's Authenticator app is even taking steps to further improve its look and usefulness.Read More
Google Authenticator v4.74 brings a refreshed material look, dark mode, and in-app camera scanner [APK Download] was written by the awesome team at Android Police.
Offering developer previews is very beneficial to a platform, but it also comes with its own perils. For example, people get upset when a feature that was part of the preview is dropped before the final release. Google has been derided in many a comment section for the removal of night mode in the final Nougat release, and now the hacky night mode enabler apps don't even work anymore. Is Google doing this because it hates you personally?Read More

We should all be familiar with the 10-cent deal alerts by now. It is a real luck of the draw to see if your home country is included in the sales.
Regardless, here is another app on sale: Twilight Pro. This is a display filter that tweaks the colors on your screen throughout the day (think LiveDisplay from CyanogenMod). It creates what some of us know as "Night Mode" wherein the blue light from the display is reduced to help with eye strain in low-light conditions.Read More
[Deal Alert] Twilight Pro unlock is down to $0.10 from $2.99 (not in U.S.) was written by the awesome team at Android Police.
After having it removed in favor of the Pixel-only (for now) Night light feature in Android 7.1, Nexus fans have been a bit upset that the screen tinting Night Mode option was axed from their handsets. While only implemented as part of Google's experiment test zone, the system UI tuner, Night Mode struck a chord for a number of reasons (which aren't worth getting into here), and taking it away had Nexus owners a bit, well, cranky.Read More
Google marks "bug" report about night mode being removed from Nexuses as "FutureRelease," implications unclear was written by the awesome team at Android Police.
We all know the pain of opening an app in a darkened room, only to be greeted by retina-searing brightness. Well, Twitter is experimenting with not being one of those apps. Some lucky users have an automatic night mode setting, which keeps the app darker from dusk till dawn.
From what we've gathered, this option is being tested in the beta channel. If you have it, it'll be in the settings under night mode.Read More

The first-party Twitter client now has another great feature under its belt. Now you can set the app to transition between the standard white theme and the blue night mode theme automatically, based on the time of day. So if you're tired of having to manually flip between each to prevent sudden night-time blindness during an innocent midnight tweet, you can now rest easy knowing your eyes will be safe, if not from the ravages of Twitter, then at least from bright lights.
The cycle of development for automatic night mode has been a long one.Read More

It's been roughly a year since Twitter made a ton of users very happy and fully introduced a night mode for its Android app. That was such a popular move with anyone who hadn't defected to a third party Twitter client that it seemed a dead cert it would eventually come to the desktop site. That time has now come.
Joe Maring over at 9to5Google noticed the toggle, which resides in a very similar position to where it is in the Android app.Read More

According to our frequent tipster Gurkanwal Singh, Twitter beta 7.12 has started showing a new night mode toggle and QR code icon. If you might remember, Twitter's night mode used to have a proper toggle in the side menu and the QR code display and scanner was hidden under the overflow menu when viewing your profile. The latter was really difficult to get to and nowhere regular users would guess.Read More

One of the more annoying aspects of the Google Home (or any smart speaker, really) is the response volume is static. Unlike a normal person, it won't talk to you at the same volume you are speaking. If you were blasting music earlier in the day and you forgot to turn it down later, asking to turn off a lamp later could result in an ear-popping "OK, TURNING OFF THE LAMP!"
