Google Maps is one of the most important services of the American company. That is why it is not surprising that technology is constantly improving what it has to offer.
The latest news, announced today by Google, informs us of the arrival of Dark Mode or dark theme on Google Maps. It should be noted that this option will be aimed at users of the respective Android application.
Dark Mode finally arrives on Google Maps for Android
The implementation of a dark theme on Google Maps has been in testing since September 2020. Over the past few months, a handful of users have had the privilege of experiencing, first hand, the potential of this theme.
Soon, everyone with an Android smartphone will be able to start using Dark Mode on their Google Maps. Whether night or day, it will be your choice to have the Maps interface in dark or light mode.
As Google points out, the option will be available in the Google Maps settings, in the Theme section. There, the user can enable the option “Always in dark mode” to change the predominant color in your application.
I want to note that I have not yet received this option on my Google Maps and it is possible that many more are faced with the same scenario. However, it will only be a matter of time before we all have access to this feature.
Advantages of the dark theme
The implementation of a dark theme is already a very frequent view in the mobile applications market. In the past two years, this option has been made available on a wide variety of services.
A dark theme has several advantages, the first being a greater friendship for the health of your eyes. Especially at night, a situation in which white backgrounds are usually more annoying to our eyes.
Another advantage of this option is found in equipment with AMOLED panels. In this case, a dark theme means that these pixels will be permanently off and this will slightly improve the autonomy of your smartphone.
