Google is starting to make available dark mode support for all users, which comes with the beta version of the Maps app for Android.
Google had begun testing dark theme support with the Android beta program for the Maps app. The company announced that the new feature began rolling out to Android users around the world after several months of testing.
The dark theme will help users save battery life and reduce eye strain with a grayscale interface. Also, dark mode is just one of a number of new features coming to the Android app by the company for Google Maps.
To apply the dark theme, Android users will be able to go to the “Settings” tab in the Google Maps application, find the “Theme” option and activate the dark theme here. Users will be able to follow the same route to return to the open theme again. For now, the update may not be available on every device as it is new. However, Google says all users should get this feature soon and it may take a few days to complete its rollout.
In addition to the dark mode in Google Maps, the company also introduced the password control feature for Android phones. The company says the feature is now integrated into Android phones with Android 9 and higher. Separately, the feature of scheduling messages in the “Messages” application is one of the innovations offered to users. In addition, the technology giant has also renewed the TalkBack Android screen reader with a new update. Also included in the update are new custom wallpapers to customize Android Auto’s car display, new games for longer journeys, shortcuts on the launch screen, and a new split-screen mode for larger screens.
Finally, it should be noted that there is no information about when dark mode will be activated for iOS users.
