My Quest was just updated to version 8 but I honestly couldn't find where 'night mode' option is? I already looked everywhere under settings.


My Go just updated to 8.0. Night Mode is located at Settings/All/Device.

Unfortunately the 'night mode' isn't the mode where you can watch videos in the dark, using 3DoF like the Go. The night mode feature in the settings menu, is for colour...makes colours warmer for night time viewing.

Ya, that’s what Night Mode does.  Same as win10.  Sorry I’m not sure what point you are trying to make?  Maybe I’m missing something?

The original question was, "Is there any estimation when the 3dof night mode will be released?" Your reply about the night mode now available in the Quest is for changing the colour, not for watching videos in the dark like the Go. Right now, when trying to watch in the dark, the headset can't track. But with 3DoF, it doesn't need to.

I updated a few apps in my library, then as soon as I rebooted, it displayed the downloading/updating image indicating the Quest itself was updating. That was yesterday.
