After a year-long of testing the dark mode in Maps, Google may finally roll out this to users soon. As reported by Android Police, the Google Maps version 10.51.1 has a toggle option to activate dark mode in Maps. This would switch the app to dark grey, and surprisingly, as clear as the light theme. Since it seems like a server-side update, users may not see until Google rolls out.
Google Maps to Get Dark Mode Soon
Google has brought the dark theme to most of its apps, except the Maps clients on phone. While it’s testing the feature since last year, it’s now reported to be in the final stages, or even rolling out to limited users to try out. While we’ve seen some part of the dark interface in version 10.50 earlier, the current latest version 10.51.1 is having it fully featured.
Google may reason bringing this mode late for being perfect since the implementation of the dark mode is well done. From what’s seen after switching to the Dark Mode in Google Maps v10.51.1, the entire theme was turned to dark grey, with little to no loss of details, making it as good as a light theme.
This is important for a navigation service since losing details makes no sense of serving. Thus, Google talking long enough to make this feature perfect is forgiven. While we thought it to be more like a night mode, switching to the light theme at days and dark at nights, it isn’t. The new version shows a toggle to turn it on, and remains active until you toggle off.
This seems more like a server-side update, thus updating the latest app may not bring this feature for sure. While it’s good to use the latest version to be able to receive it first, it all depends on Google when to roll widely. Download the latest Google Maps apk here.
