The Google Maps dark theme affects both the map layer and menu, and features some stylish visual flourishes.
When dark mode is turned on, the sea will appear pitch black with an outline for adjoining land or bridges that run over the water.
Other changes include UI elements being changed to light grey or pale blue colours from white and a darker shade of blue.
If you have the system wide dark mode already turned on then when you open Google Maps up the app will prompt you to turn dark mode on.
And you can toggle the feature on or off by heading to Settings > Theme.
You’ll be able to choose from a few different options, either to have Google Maps always in light theme, always in dark theme or same as the device theme.
Google announced at the end of February that dark mode was at long last coming to Google Maps.
