Sony Xperia phone will update ‘night mode’ option


Sony’s Xperia XA1 series of phones come with a “Good night actions,” feature through which users can reduce the blue light of the display. However, the company has now confirmed that the functionality will be stripped off in the Oreo update.

Plus, the company also said there are currently no plans to add such a feature to other Xperia phones.

Now, given that the feature in question is currently only limited to the Xperia XA1 lineup, the aforementioned confirmation means none of the company’s smartphones will have blue light filtering functionality post the Oreo update.

For what it’s worth, Sony had introduced a ‘Night Light’ mode in its concept builds sometime back, but never brought that feature into its stable software channel. As you can see in the screenshot above, the company is now suggesting users to go for third-party night mode applications.
