It used to be back in the day that users would have to manually choose from various profiles on their phones, like if you were in a meeting you would set it to meeting mode where it would remain silent, or if you’re outside you would set it to outdoors mode where it would be louder to compensate for a potentially noisy environment.

However these days our devices are smarter and allows us greater control over how they work. In fact it seems that such control is coming to Google Home in the form of Night Mode. Discovered by Android Police, it seems that Google is testing out the feature for those who are currently part of the preview program for Google Home.

Based on what we can tell, this feature basically lets users set a schedule for Google Home where from certain times and certain days, it will enable Night Mode which will reduce the volume of responses and decrease the brightness of the LEDs. This means that users will no longer be rudely woken up at 2AM by a screaming Google Home.

Users can also choose how dim they want the LEDs to be, and also enable a Do Not Disturb mode which blocks sounds from reminders, messages, and other notifications, save for alarms and timers. There is no word on when the feature will be released for the rest of Google Home owners, but it is definitely worth keeping an eye out for.
