Android 12 extra-dim feature beats the Night mode

Android 12 will make a big bang when it hits your mobile screens. We say this after reading its developer preview. And in this post, we will talk about the Android 12 extra-dim feature that beats the Night mode. Extra-dim will supposedly mean that phone screens will be able to go darker than ever before, finally giving you a reprieve from the glare of midnight scrolling.

This new upcoming feature in the latest android OS looks to go beyond previous limitations. Though right now we can’t verify how effective it is on different models of Android phones. But according to the people who have tested it, it’s awesome.

A beta release of this feature is expected sometime in the next month. The full release should happen later this year, so it won’t be long before you can try extra-dim brightness for yourself. And to put it into perspective this feature filters blue light to a level that it feels like reading a paper.
