Weeks after Microsoft announced the Windows 10 S as a direct alternative to the Chrome OS, the much preferred OS by educators gets an update which adds a single feature to match up to the likes of macOS and Windows on functionality.
Users of the Canary builds of Chrome OS have discovered the inclusion of a new experimental Night Light mode which is the alternative to the night mode in Apple’s macOS. When switched on, the feature would allow cutting down on the blue light by adding a little yellow tint to the screen in order to let you sleep, which should practically help. It’d be a blessing to use the feature at times when you’re using your Chromebook to get work done at night.
Though the feature would come in quite handy it’s much harder to get the Canary build onto your Chromebook as you’d have to switch to a Canary update track which might have been easy if you knew your way into writing command scripts. Not just that, you’d also need to cope up with the choice of running a buggy operating system. That means crashes and bugs would be a usual phenomenon if you’re willing to sacrifice the game for a quick browsing during the night. If not, then we’d suggest you wait till the same feature is made available in stable builds in the future.
