Nocturnal view: Using an Android smartphone or tablet at night might soon get easier.

Google's developer preview has revealed that the company may be coming out with a nighttime viewing mode for its smartphones and tablets in the near future, reports Mashable.

iOS users are already benefiting from the feature since Monday in iOS 9.3, with Apple naming the new option Night Shift. Google is calling theirs "Night Mode."

Night Mode will be found in a somewhat hidden settings menu called "System UI Tuner," and can be turned on and off manually or set to operate automatically depending on the time of day.

There's no word yet whether the feature is just an experiment or whether Google plans to incorporate it into its next operating system. —  AFP Relaxnews
