On my Android 4.4 device, is there a way to change the auto-brightness values without rooting the device, e.g. by writing a tiny application?

This question came from our site for computer enthusiasts and power users.

  • apps exist that attempt to perform this function. do any of them work with 4.4? "what have you tried?" – Psycogeek Feb 13 '14 at 8:55

It is perfectly possible or you can use one of existing solutions on Google Play (for example Lux)

EDIT: OFC it works with 4.4, using it myself.


Screen Filter changes brightness below what is possible using auto or manual settings. It works on Android 4.4. Great for bed time reading.

Correction - (and contrary to the down vote) it does let you set the Auto Brightness Level to a level below what it normally would be - without rooting. I just tested it.
