How to put the Google Pixel Watch into Bedtime mode

If you want to prepare your Pixel Watch before a good night’s sleep, then here’s how to get it into the right mode for bedtime.

There’s nothing better than a good night’s sleep, and that’s what your Pixel Watch’s Bedtime Mode is intended to enable.

If you switch this on, then you won’t be bothered by any notifications except for alarms, priority callers, or repeated calls, so you won’t be roused from your slumber by any other app alerts, and the screen will not light up.

It’s very easy to put this in place, so just follow our step-by-step guide below to see how.

What you’ll need: 

The Short Version 

  • Swipe up from the home screen
  • Tap on the moon-and-stars icon

  1. Step

    Swipe up from the home screen

    For starters, you just need to swipe up on the home screen in order to summon the Quick Settings menu.

    Tap on the moon and stars icon

    Within this menu, you’ll see an icon that depicts a moon and stars. Tap once on this icon.
