Several smartphone and display manufacturers already have added features that reduce the amount of blue light. The same will now become a default feature in Windows 10, according to NextPowerUp.

Today the most recent version of Windows 10 was leaked which contains the functionality. It’s expected that this feature will also be in the next Windows 10 Insider build that is expected for 2017. Microsoft has halted official releases of Windows 10 Insider builds as it’s working on its Universal Update Platform.

In today’s leaked version there is a new settings entry called ‘Blue light settings’ that makes it possible to adapt the color temperature through a slider. It also makes it possible to reduce the amount of blue light automatically at a set time or to synchronize this with sunset.
