Google Maps “dark mode” coming soon on Android devices

Ever since 2019, Google has been “dressing” its apps in dark shades that have become very popular among users. One of the few apps that doesn’t have “dark mode” yet is Google Maps, which is expected to change soon. Google is preparing a global update of its map application, and users will be able to search for directions, sights and the nearest restaurants in the dark mode.

According to the latest information, Google’s dark mode for the Google Maps application will combine light and dark gray shades, some will also be blue and, of course, black. Similar to other apps that already offer the ability to use the dark mode, Google Maps will also help users save energy while reducing eye strain.

The first users received a test version of the dark mode last September, and in the last few days, these same users may have noticed that “dark mode” is disappearing from their devices. Google is thus preparing for the upcoming global upgrade, which we will all be looking forward to. When the update is officially released, users will receive a “New! Maps in dark theme” notification where they will be able to choose from three standard options:

  • All the time light theme
  • All the time dark topic
  • Same theme as device theme

Google has announced “dark mode” for Google Maps along with other Android innovations that Android users can expect soon. What exactly this “soon” means is not known, but a global update is expected to come in the next few weeks.
