Night mode on your Galaxy tablet

Galaxy Tablet s5e Night Mode

You might not notice during the day, but late at night, your tablet might as well be the sun. The bright screen makes you squint and can keep you awake until the wee hours. Don't worry, your tablet has the solution: Night mode. Set a darker theme on your tablet, so you can use it more comfortably at night.

Turn on Night mode

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

From Settings, search for and select Night mode, and then tap Turn on now.

You can also swipe down from the top of the screen to open the Quick Settings panel, and then navigate to and tap the Night mode icon. The icon will glow blue when Night mode is on.

Turn on now switch on for Night mode

Note: Third-party apps will not be affected. If the option is grayed out, update the tablet's software.

Set a schedule for Night mode

Maybe you like Night mode to come on right when the sun sets. You can set a schedule to suit your needs.

From Settings, search for and select Night mode, and then tap Turn on as scheduled. You can choose Sunset to sunrise or Custom schedule to set your own schedule for Night mode. Tap Start time, select your desired time, and then tap Done. Next, tap End time, select a time, and then tap Done.
