How to turn the night mode in Android 7.0 Nougat

The test version of Android N during the development phase included some interesting innovations, which in the final version of Android 7.0 Nougat were inaccessible to users. Recently, we wrote about how to return to “nougat” multi-window interface, and now tell you how to activate the night mode in Android 7.0 Nougat.

To begin with, let us recall, “corporation good” is not the first year trying to enter a “night mode” in your mobile system. Google first flattered user expectations before the release of Marshmallow, then announced and introduced it into the pre-assembly Android N. But, as it turned out, place for “night mode” was not found in the final release of Android 7.0 Nougat.

In fact, the developers have not removed this feature from the system and made hidden in the system interface. As Google explained, that it caused some performance issues. It is possible that after their elimination, “night mode” may appear in a future update, but there is a chance that, this feature can be completely removed from the system. To activate the “night mode” will need ADB (a tool that enables knowledge control on the device based on the Android operating system from a computer) and corresponding his application. Of course, this opportunity not only for advanced users but also for all the Android enthusiasts. This was made possible by the Android-application developer Michael Evans, who wrote a small program to activate the “Night mode” on Android 7.0 Nougat. Moreover, ADB knowledge is not necessary, a simple program that can use it, even ordinary users.

Instructions on how to add the option “Night Mode” in the system interface Android 7.0 Nougat:

  1. Open Google Play Store.
  2. Tap Search bar.
  3. Enter Night Mode Enabler. Press Install.
  4. Run the Night Mode Enabler. You will be prompted to activate an additional section System UI Tuner interface settings (if before you do not activate).
  5. Press a single button to Enable Night Mode app. This will take you to the settings menu “night mode.”Here you can activate the mode automatically depending on the time of day and location, turn on the filter and adjust its intensity.
  6. That’s all. You can check the settings in the notification bar – be corresponding switching icon “night mode” should appear next to the other system configuration.


This is not “dark theme”, which many expect to see in the new system, but, nevertheless, a useful “trick” that works at the system level. Maybe some will wonder, what is a night mode in practice. In simple terms, this decrease in the brightness of the screen of the mobile device and change the intensity of the “cold” blue light on a “warm” yellow-orange. It is known that bright blue light in the evening and at night (from a TV, monitor or smartphone screen) severely affects not only vision but also in the has many other impacts on users.
In addition, the light emitted by such displays prevents the production of melatonin which is responsible for sleep and biorhythms. The “night mode” in any case, is a positive effect on the perception of the light source of various devices. For example, many applications for reading electronic books have this option, and there are a dozen utilities that specializes in adjusting the color temperature of mobile devices.
