GNOME 3.24 comes loaded with some new features and fixes which include Night Light, improved notifications, new Recipes and Games application, two GPU support, etc. I have already explored some features of the new GNOME 3.24 through the release note, and here are some features that I found most interesting:

1.    NightLight:    With the new version of GNOME, users no longer require a third-party app to change the screen color according to the current time of the day. The new NightLight with the right settings does that for you now.
