Dimming Android 13 wallpapers will be possible with Digital Wellbeing

Tech Highlights:

  • On Android today, Google has provided a full suite of features to help discourage the use of your phone at night, or at the very least make nighttime use less straining on the eyes. With Bedtime Mode, a big part of Google’s Digital Wellbeing suite, you can already use a schedule to put your phone into grayscale, disable Always-On Display, and activate Do Not Disturb.

  • The option for Bedtime Mode to darken your background is the newest Digital Wellbeing feature that will soon be available on Android 13 smartphones. Regarding APK Insight: We’ve decompiled the most recent version of an app that Google put on the Play Store in our “APK Insight” post. These files, known as APKs for Android apps, can be disassembled to reveal several lines of code that allude to potential future features. Remember that Google might or might not ever deploy these features, and our understanding of what they are might be limited. However, we’ll endeavour to make those that are nearly finished show you how they’ll seem in the event that they do ship. In light of that, read

In Android 13, we’ve found that Google has been working on the ability to dim your phone’s wallpaper. This capability briefly went public in an Android code change we spotted a few months back before it was removed, and our Dylan Roussel has managed to enable it on an Android 13 Beta device. Below, you’ll see a few examples of a wallpaper being dimmed, ranging from 0% (disabled) to 100% (fully black).

In an alternate bit of in-app text that’s likely to be shown on devices not yet running Android 13, we learn that Bedtime Mode will also be able to make your device “use a dark background.” Based on another bit of text, this seems to just be referring to turning on Android’s built-in dark mode. strin , use a dark background, and more</string> As of today, while Android does offer ways to schedule dark themes based on sunset and sunrise — and we’ve seen signs of Bedtime-based scheduling in Android 13 — these new options for Bedtime Mode do not seem to be live yet on our devices running the Android 13 Beta.

More specifically, wallpaper dimming will come as an optional new feature of Digital Wellbeing’s Bedtime Mode as one of the many ways to darken your screen at night to be easier on the eyes. At this time, we’re not sure by what percentage your Android 13 wallpaper will be dimmed. <string name=”dark_screen_options_label”>Screen options at bedtime</string string name=”dark_screen_options_description”>Keep the screen dark, dim the wallpaper, and more</string>
