Use Night Mode on your phone

Last Update date : Oct 27. 2020

When you’re lying in bed, you don’t know what’s worse: resisting the urge to use your phone or hurting your eyes with its brightness. With the Pie update’s new Night Mode feature, you’ll never have to worry about that again. Night Mode will make your phone’s theme darker, so you can use your phone comfortably at night.


Note: Night Mode may not work if you're using a downloaded theme or a high contrast font. If the option is grayed out update the phone's software.

Manually Turn on Night Mode

When you use Night Mode, all your phone’s menus, settings, and preloaded Samsung apps will use a darker theme.


Third-party apps will stay the same, however.


Follow these steps to activate Night Mode:


1. Swipe down from the top of the screen to open the Quick Settings panel.

2. Swipe to the left, and then touch the Night Mode icon.

3. The icon will glow blue when Night Mode is on.

4. To turn Night Mode off, touch the icon again.
