Google Home Update Brings "Night Mode" with Lower Volume and LED Brightness

These are the Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL Google Home Update Brings "Night Mode" with Lower Volume and LED Brightness

The discover section will show you information from the content you are casting as well. Some of the tips I've seen are how to activate Assistant and how to raise and lower the volume. When you are casting using Netflix or YouTube for example, a card will appear showing the app and device you are now using, as well as, the title of the video you are watching. If you have a Chromecast or Chromecast-enabled device like a Vizio Smart TV, you'll see a card near the bottom with the source for whatever is being displayed as your backdrop. Stay tuned with us for more details as Google Home Mini launches tomorrow.

The Watch and Listen sections have been combined to what is now the Browse section. The top of the page shows popular TV shows and movies that you can browse through, and scrolling through this list will show specific sections for YouTube, Netflix, Spotify, Google Play Movies, and any other media streaming apps that are linked to your account. The more you search the more specific the tags get.

What is Night Mode?

Search: It is now easier to search in this app as the search button has been moved towards the bottom. Google also throws in a DND mode with timing options.

Printing of new Rs 100 notes to begin in April
Not only new Rs 100 banknotes will be distrubuted in India, but also soon this currency will be launched into a coin pattern too. A Livemint report mentioned that according to central bank sources, the RBI will start printing new Rs 100 notes in April 2018.

The update should be live for all, so head into Google Play and grab the update. I was shown several different options for artist-related or genre radio stations, but only three options per category. During that time span, the Google Home's volume will be reduced. Even if you do find something interesting to listen to in the Google Home app, selecting it takes you to your music app of choice anyway, so what's the point? If you're part of the preview program, you can use the feature now.

The Devices section got a small update too. The volume bar has been redesigned as well. For smart bulbs in a bedroom that's a little sleep interruptive, and for some devices, like the Google Home, the boot noise can have the same effect; this is incompatible with marriage.

The new Night Mode feature was first discovered by Android Police through the Google Home preview program.

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. With the release of these new products, we can expect the corresponding apps will also be updated.
