The users of the Bedtime Mode in Android 12 version could be in for more related versions even, Including the automatic wallpaper dimming available in Android 13 .
This information is based on the report from 9to5Google that details a deep dive into the source code of Android. Precisely, that is the code that refers to the Digital Wellbeing features in the OS.
What Does This Newly-Spotted Automatic Wallpaper Dimming Feature Do In Android 13?
This feature that is tucked in the latest beta update for Digital Wellbeing is optional and straightforward at the same time. Bedtime Mode sets up a device to reduce the screen brightness, turn off notifications and do more at a specified time set by the user.
That is with the underlying aim to help users wind down and use their smartphones less at bedtime. With this new feature set in place, it is not only the screen that will be automatically dimmed in conjunction with Bedtime Mode. Also, the Wallpaper will take on a darker tint. It will be dimmed from 0 percent to 100 percent.
When the wallpaper is at 100-percent dimmed, it is effectively black. However, the tint is really noticeable, as shown by the photo shared by the source, even at 25 percent only.
What Else Is In The Newly-Spotted Code?
Besides the changes made to the wallpaper brightness, other changes present hint at the alterations to the dark mode theming of Android. Simply put, that is the option to link that theming to Bedtime Mode.
Before now, devices can be set to turn on dark mode with sunset and turn off dark mode with sunrise. That could actually receive the option to have dark mode turned on or off with Bedtime in the Android 13 version.
Put together, the changes could be taken as a significant step toward the goals of Google that are related to Digital wellbeing. Digital Wellbeing effectively gives users a noticeable hint that they need to put their smartphones down.
Whether the changes coming with Android 13 will be ultimately released by Google or not, is yet to be seen. The changes may also be put on hold until a future update is done.
Android 13 is expected to be a key topic at 2022 Google I/O Developers Conference to be held this week. Google is almost finished with the OS itself. What is remaining is just a couple of beta trials before its final launch will be carried out later this year.
Since the feature doesn’t tend to appear just yet on any non-Pixel device, even with Android 13, it may not be ready for this update in time. Also, to start with, Google could opt to make the feature Pixel only.
That is all there is to it. Google is working hard to make users’ experience easy and exciting. Whether or not this feature will be included in the Android 13 update, we cannot really tell until the roll out commences. For the meantime, let us keep our hope alive.
