Microsoft’s been pretty great about adding user options and accessibility features to Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S on a system level, and pretty soon, the consoles are going to get another pretty nifty new feature. It’s been confirmed that a new Night Mode feature is going to be available soon.
As its name suggests, it will dim your screen, your controller LED, and allow you to filter screen. Night Mode is already available for Alpha Skip-Ahead users, and is currently only available in English, what with localization work still underway, but you should expect wider rollout for all Xbox users not long from now. Tom Warren of The Verge recently took to Twitter to show the Night Mode and some of its customization options in actions, which you can check out below.
There’s no word yet on when exactly Night Mode will be available to everyone at large, but Xbox features don’t usually take an awfully long time to be rolled out after being made available to users in a limited capacity, so hopefully, we won’t have to wait too long.
this Xbox night mode has an impressive amount of customization. Microsoft has really put a lot of thought into this pic.twitter.com/BVvUrBe9SH
