Google Maps on IOS Now Has a Dark Mode, Here’s How to Enable It

I’m betting this year is ending with good news, Google Maps on iOS now has a dark mode. In August, Google announced its iOS Maps app would soon be getting a dark mode.

Google Maps on IOS Now Has a Dark Mode, Here’s How to Enable It

But although the feature fully launched at the beginning of September, it arrived quietly enough that several Verge staffers hadn’t even noticed its appearance until we started receiving in-app notices. If you’ve also been in the dark, rather than the dark mode (sorry), here’s how to enable the feature.

Google Maps on IOS Now Has a Dark Mode, Here’s How to Enable It

According to the verge, from the main Google Maps interface on iOS, tap your profile picture in the top right of the screen. Pick “Settings” from the menu, and then select “Dark Mode” from the Using Maps section.

Here you have three options: On, Off, and “Same as device setting” (which automatically turns the dark mode on or off depending on what you have enabled at the OS level).

If you’re on Android, a similar feature launched earlier in the year, but the route to enable it is a little different than on iOS. Here you need to tap your profile picture, then “Settings,” and then pick “Theme,” and select from the same three options as iOS.

If you ask me, I’d say the best choice in both cases is to have Google Maps use the same setting as your device so that all your apps neatly match one another. But don’t let us tell you what to do. Follow your heart.

Google Map

Google map is a mapping and navigation application for desktop and mobile devices from Google. Maps provide turn-by-turn directions to a destination along with 2D and 3D satellite views, as well as public transit information.

Maps also offer “Street Views,” which are photos of the actual streets and surroundings. Google Maps uses machine learning in combination with various data sources including aggregate location data, historical traffic patterns, local government data, and real-time feedback from users, to predict traffic.

Google Maps can do a lot more than just provide directions. The app can also serve up details on points of interest, such as restaurant descriptions, reviews, photos, and more. One particularly useful piece of information in Google Maps is the times of day when a location is usually the most crowded.

How to Create a Google Map

If you don’t yet have the app, you can download it from the Play Store and follow the steps below;

  • Set your home and work. Type less by setting your home and work addresses.
  • Get info about a place. Find a place on the map and get directions.
  • Get directions and start navigation. On a phone or tablet, at the bottom of your map, tap Go. …
  • Learn how the map works.

With these steps above you can easily use your Google map without stress.
