Galaxy S20 Ultra - Yellow 'night mode' filter turns on and off automatically

I continue to have a yellow filter turns on and off on my phone and now tablet at night. I can be Google or sending a message and it will turn on and off a couple times during it. 

 

I have tried the Google Books night mode and it does not work for me. The blue light filter is turned off as is the schedule. 

 

It is a really ugly and extremely noticable yellow (doesn't help that I keep seeing it turn on and off!) And feels like it's ruining what is usually such an amazing screen

Hi @Ydania thank you for your prompt reply 

 

Bixby routines is toggled on because I use them.

 

The only routine I have for night is lowering my brightness when charging past 10pm and before 7am. 

 

Would this really cause a filter to turn itself on and off spuradically? Typically only on a dark app when my brightness is low

I believe it can being that it learns from your routines. Especially since its happening quite regularly during a specific time. Try diving into the routines currently programmed and see if you can find something there. 

Also, here are some other things to check: 
* see if night light mode is ON in google ebooks 
* see if blue light filter is being triggered through evening routines

As you'll see from the original post. Google ebooks doesn't work. And after turning Bixby routines off completely it is still happening

It is not on this second but if I open an app like Snapchat, then it starts turning itself off and on. The blue light filter setting is never on
