f.lux is currently the best blue light filter available on the Windows Store.

Night Light feature makes it easier to work at night

Microsoft launched the Windows 10 Creators Update with a new feature called Night Light but before Windows 10 received this feature users could use f.lux, one of the best blue light filters available for Microsoft’s OS and iOS, Android, and macOS.

Now, f.lux has been released to the Windows Store and is currently the number one Windows 10 Night Light alternative. It includes the same features as the desktop version and runs in the system tray for quicker access.

Windows phones still lack support

While the application was ported with Windows Centennial, it does not support Windows phones. Microsoft suggested its own blue light filter could arrive for Windows phones but considering the decline of the mobile platform, there isn’t much chance left to see this feature coming to the platform in the near future.

The Windows Store version of f.lux includes a bedtime mode that enables the lowest level of light before bed. This is a result of an automatic analysis of the beneficial ways in which the light affects your body at different times of the day. f.lux can also work with home smart lights and will make the light match your screen.

All in all, the f.lux app is more advanced than the Night Light feature implemented in Windows 10, so check it out!
