Xbox can boast of having one of the gaming ecosystems with more accessibility options, such as the option to share part of the controls with a second controller, and the new system update promises to continue improving in this section with a “night mode” that modifies both the light on the screen and the guide button on the Xbox controller, among other functions.
At the moment, this feature is only available for insider users of the UK Alpha ring, but it will not take long to reach the rest of users with the launch of the new version of the system in the coming weeks. Until then, the journalist Tom Warren, from The Verge, has shared through his Twitter account, the operation of this Night Mode that lowers screen light to protect eyesight during the night, just like smartphones and other devices do.

As we can see in this preview, this new version of the xbox system not only allows you to activate a Night Mode, it allows you to program it at a specific time of day and modify the amount of blue light filtering from the panel. Likewise, it can attenuate the guide button light on the controller and the power button on the console, you can check all the details of this and other functions in the full update notes via Xbox Wire.
At the moment there is no confirmed date for the arrival of this new system update, but it is expected that it will be available on all Xbox consoles in a matter of a few weeks. Perhaps along with the launch of Psychonauts 2, a game that also includes curious accessibility options, such as a game mode with invincibility.
