As expected with the latest Anniversary Update, Microsoft Edge now supports the popular Turn Off Lights extension. You can now download the extension from the Windows Store, but you’ll need to run the Anniversary update in order for the feature to work.

Initially, Microsoft introduced a bunch of extensions for Microsoft Edge in the Windows Store, such as  AdBlock, LastPass, and OneNote Web Clipper. Microsoft recently announced it was working on new extensions that included uBlock Origin, Ghostery, and Turn Off Lights. From the three extensions, The Turn Off Lights feature is the first to have become available for the general public.

This feature is the simplest and the most basic one, and dims the brightness of the surroundings of a video embedded in a website, enhancing the focus on the video being played. It appears as if the video is being played in a cinematic environment. The extension works on various sites which include embedded videos on YouTube, Vimeo, Dailymotion, Hulu, Metacafe, YouKu and others.

The Turn Off Lights feature is operated in the most  simple way, just click the lamp icon on the Edge browser and the video being player will automatically be brought in the spotlight. Click anywhere but the video to revert back to the original view. The extension also contains several modes, which include a way for HTML5-based videos to fill the screen fully, as well as options to customize the look and feel of the background while the extension is active.  The most interesting feature allows you to make a glow appear around the video edges to give a more theatrical feel.
