One of the best features of Google Home Hub is Ambient EQ. But if you find that your Google Home Hub does not dim its screen in dark rooms, this feature can be turned off in the Hub itself in a hidden menu.

Ambient EQ is a great feature that adjusts the brightness and color temperature of the screen according to the lighting in the room. When the splash screen is running, the color setting makes the photos look like they are printed on paper instead of on the display. And when the light goes on or off, the screen should automatically dim so it doesn’t act like a bright flashlight in the room. This makes it the perfect piece for your living room or bedroom.

All of this is true if Ambient EQ doesn’t work like the photo above. The Google Home hub described above didn’t dim at all after the initial setup. And a factory reset didn’t solve the problem. Ambient EQ settings have not been disabled in the Google Home app. It turned out that Google Home Hub has a hidden screen settings menu. And from here, Ambient EQ can be turned off, which overrides any settings that are in the application.

So if your Google Home Hub doesn’t dim, the first thing to do is swipe up from the bottom of the screen.

On the far left, click on the sun icon to show the brightness settings.

At the far left, tap the sun icon again.

You should now see an A on the sun icon and the words «Ambient EQ on» should appear.

From now on, dimming should work properly. This is a fairly simple problem that can be solved, only complicated by the fact that the settings are not intuitive. If you set the brightness in this menu to any value between 1 and 10, Ambient EQ will be disabled.
