It has been said that Dark Mode is the bee’s knee, and it seems that Microsoft agrees. The company has begun rolling out night mode for select Alpha Skip-Ahead ring Xbox Insiders. The feature will essentially allow users to lower the brightness of their screens, control the LED brightness of their controllers and the Xbox power button as well. Users will be able to switch to a system-wide dark mode. The mode will also disable HDR when enabled.
While this is a great addition to the Xbox ecosystem, it has not yet been rolled out to the general public. The company is testing the feature internally and with Xbox Insiders, so we are not sure when it will actually hit home consoles. A blog post on the official Xbox website states: “We have a new Xbox Update Preview on the way to the Alpha Skip-Ahead ring. It is important to note that some updates made to these preview OS builds include background enhancements that ensures a quality and stable build for Xbox consoles. ”.
The site also describes a few fixes and upgrades to the system, such as audio bugs, Dolby Vision for Gaming, Edge and more. Xbox also encourages people to submit bug and error reports. The post also says that “Please note that location is still pending, so the feature is currently only available in English.”
