Amazon Echo Show: Activate night mode – this is where the settings are hidden

The smart display of the Amazon Echo Show always stays on. So you can always keep an eye on the content of the start screen such as delivery notifications or the weather report. At night, however, the display activity can also be annoying – especially if the Echo Show is placed in the bedroom.

But that doesn’t mean your bedchamber isn’t a suitable place for the Echo Show to work. Because there are several ways to adapt the Amazon display to the desired conditions at night. In addition to voice commands or routines that turn off the Echo Show screen completely, the device series also has its own night mode.

SamaGame explains step by step how to set up the night mode of the Echo Show and thus ensure better sleep quality and save electricity at the same time:

How to set up night mode

  1. 1

    On your Echo Show’s home screen, swipe down from the top of the display to open the main menu.

  2. 2

    Click on “Settings” in the main menu.

  3. 3

    Beware, deception: If you look for the night mode under “Screen and brightness”, you won’t find it. The corresponding settings can actually be found under “Clock and Photo Viewer”.

  4. 4

    Under “Clock and Photo Viewer,” scroll down to the bottom and click on the “Night Mode” category under “Advanced Options.”

  5. 5

    Here you can now set whether the night mode should be activated at a certain time or whether the Echo Show should activate it automatically based on the lighting conditions in the room. There is also the option of configuring a time display for the night.
