I’ve noticed that the built-in Samsung factory watch faces have the ability to automatically change the brightness of their Always On Display (AOD) modes, depending on the ambient light in the room.
Eg. the brightness of the AOD face will get dimmer if there is less ambient light in the room, and it will get brighter if there is more ambient light.
These factory faces behave this way, for example:
However, the AOD face of my custom watch face from WFS doesn’t do this. Instead, it only supports auto-brightness with the active watch face, but never with the passive AOD face.
Is this intentional? Or is it a bug in Wear OS or One UI? Why do the factory faces support AOD auto-brightness, but the custom faces don’t?
It’s quite annoying to have my AOD face “dim” because I was in a darker room when I last turned it on, and then I walk into a brighter room and the AOD face remains dim and unreadable, instead of adjusting automatically. The AOD on our Galaxy phones can auto-adjust, so I think the watches should too.
Hello! Can I ask you to test the auto-brightness AOD function on my watch face. A client wrote to me that after updating his Galaxy Watch 6, auto brightness did not work on my Watch face. Here is a promotional code for free installation. I will be very grateful!
It’s on Google Play. During installation, enter the promotional code for a free download. Either install, please test and return immediately, or I will return it myself using the purchase ID. Thank you!
Thank you very much for your answer. We have already tested it and the client confirmed that AOD auto-brightness is already working on his watch. Probably the update in his country came with some delay. Thank you!
