Google Maps dark mode is now official. The search giant has been testing for the past two months the dark mode in its maps application for iOS, a dark mode that is finally launched for all users and allows the user to enjoy the entire application in dark tones when the device has the dark mode activated.
Feeling screen fatigue or want to customize your app? You’re in luck: the dark mode of Google Maps for iOS will start working in the coming weeks so you can give your eyes a break or save battery. To activate it, head to Settings, tap on dark mode and select “On”.
The dark mode that was previously available in the Google Maps app only affected the map, not the app’s menus, which made it difficult to use the app in unfavorable lighting conditions due to the sudden changes in lighting when switching between the menus and the map.
Within the configuration options, Google Maps allows us if we want the dark mode to be activated when it is running on the device or if we want it to be always on (as we can see in the image above).
Along with the implementation of the full dark mode in Google Maps, the search giant has also added the ability to share the location through the Messages application.
According to Google, the dark mode will become available to all users in the next 30 days, so if you still do not have it activated, just sit back and wait or use Apple Maps in the meantime, as Apple’s map service does support the full dark mode.
