Windows 10 Night Light feature is not your cup of tea? No worries, now there is a much better alternative for it available in the Windows Store.
In the Windows 10 Creators Update, the company has included lots of new features to improve the capabilities of the operating system and one out of them is called Night Light. It helps you sleep better in the night and reduce the eye strain by reducing the amount of blue light released by your laptop or computer.
There is setting available using which you can automatically enable the Night light mode when the sunsets or you can also select a particular time period for this feature. It works really fine, but there is one downside of this feature as it starts with full intensity when its enable at the sunset instead of increasing the intensity over a time. This thing is pointed out by lots of users.
F.lux App for Windows 10
Previously there was no night light feature alternative available for Windows 10 in the Windows Store, but today F.lux app for Windows 10 is released officially. F.lux is the original application with this idea. Even popular OS makers like Microsoft, Apple, and Google freshly initiated the process of integrating similar functionalities into their respective operating systems due to heavy demand.
But if we compare F.lux for Windows with default Night light, undoubtedly F.lux is a better alternative for Windows 10 Night Light feature. And good thing is that the intensity of the warmer colors increases over a time which in return offer a better experience.
