The Bedtime mode is one of the features on your Galaxy S22 that looks to improve your digital wellbeing.
It is basically an ‘upgraded’ version of the Do Not Disturb mode which mutes all alerts and notifications so that you can have a peaceful night sleep.
The Samsung bedtime mode, if enabled will change the screen to grayscale and mute calls, alerts and other sounds for your bedtime duration.
For the feature to work perfectly, you have to set your bedtime properly in the Clock app of your phone.
