How to enable Night Mode on Amazon Echo Spot

Echo Spot is an Amazon product designed to fit anywhere in your house and does most anything. Since it comes with the possibility of connecting it to Alexa, a smart voice-based service capable of technological wonders like controlling smart home devices, playing music and so on. The majority of people like to keep their Echo Spot close by, even at night. That’s when a small detail might become an issue.

The Echo Spot’s display is appealing, modern and bright. No matter how much you dim this illumination, it can still be troubling, especially at night. Be it a man or a woman, to wake up to a shiny light slowly scorching your retinas is not a pleasure. That’s where Night Mode comes into play. This feature dims the screen to prevent the uncomfortable sensation, while also setting the background to black, to make the effect even less bothering for your eyes.

You don’t have to be some tech wiz to enjoy this nice alternative display version that your smart device offers. Just follow these easy steps, and you’ll be back at enjoying the lush life in no time.

Even at the lowest light intensity, it is possible that for some, it will still be too bright. Some of us need a pitch black and quiet environment to be even able to fall asleep. Maybe Amazon will fix this feature somewhere in the future. Night Mode, however, permits you to still the time or whatever data you might be interested in, in the middle of the night, without blinding you.

Also, the effectiveness of the Night Mode is also based on your own brightness levels. If you went all in, with the full 100 %, there is no way you’ll get the dimmest possible setting. Cut that brightness in half and the ending result will be a lot more acceptable.

No more wonders about what the Night Mode is and how it works. And most of all, now you can enable it at any time, making your slumber hours significantly pleasing. Keep your eyes and your sleeping habits healthy with such a minimal effort.
