Many at times you might have been disgruntled by someone’s phone in a movie theater or while in someplace where silence is the order of the time ringing. Well, you will not need to worry any more, as Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) according to The Next Web has been granted a patent that it intends to use for developing an ‘inconspicuous mode’ in its devices.
Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) will reportedly introduce the inconspicuous mode in its upcoming Lumia models. The feature will allow devices to automatically adjust screen brightness as well as phone sound and brightness depending on surroundings. The inconspicuous mode is to be triggered by sensors fitted on the device once someone visits venues like movie theaters.
The inconspicuous mode will also adjust itself depending on what someone has indicated in the calendar; say an event for seeing a movie is found. Users will have an option of exiting the mode once a given a condition has been met, or it will self-adjust itself. Users will also have an opportunity of manually activating the mode.
The Patent was granted on January 13 having been filed back in 2013. The Patent allows Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) to be the sole proprietor of the technology barring the likes of Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) and Google Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOGL) from using it on their devices. It awaits to be seen if Microsoft will opt to license the same technology and generate some revenues from it.
Some of the triggers that are to be synonymous with the new feature once embedded in Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT)’s devices include GPS, NFC or Wi-Fi. Browsing history could also be used to activate the inconspicuous mode. For example, if you bought a ticket to a given event scheduled for a specific date and time, the mode will adjust itself once the time is clocked.
Users will not have to worry about the screen’s brightness under the inconspicuous mode as it will be sufficient for reading messages as well as time without affecting other people while say in a movie theater.
