Microsoft may be planning on introducing a blue light filter on the upcoming Windows 10 Creators Update, meaning this would provide functionality which is similar to the f.lux app which is already available cross platform.
And to support the information, the feature is ready to make its first appearance, as a blue light filter has been spotted on a Windows 10 build 14997 which was leaked yesterday.
This new Windows 10 setting would make using the PC easier during the night by adjusting color temperature and using blue to balance the display settings. This way, Microsoft adjusts your display settings at the operating system level, so users won’t have to touch their monitor to do it.
f.lux is already super successful, not only on the desktop but also on smartphones, where manufacturers already stepped in and developed their own alternatives that are directly integrated into the operating system. Apple is offering the so-called Night Shift on the iPhone, which kicks in at predefined hours or when the user selects it.
In Windows 10, the blue light filter will come with options to adjust color temperature at night and configure a schedule. These, however, are just the first settings that are integrated into the operating system, so the feature could evolve more in the coming updates to the operating system, depending on the feedback Redmond gets from insiders....
