Google, from its Android account (@Android), tweeted that Camera Go app – the camera app on Android Go phones – has got a dedicated night mode feature.

Nokia 1.3 may be the first phone running Android Go to get this feature. As of now, it is unclear by when Nokia 1.3 users will be able to experience a dedicated night mode. Other Nokia phones with Android Go will also be receiving this feature but a timeline has not been shared yet.

Along with Nokia phones, other smartphones running Android Go will be getting night mode as well. As of now, it is available for Nokia 1.3, Wiko Y61, and Wiko Y81.
