Google Maps is reading app-wide dark mode on Android

Follows Home app last month, Google Maps is one of the last first-party apps to require Dark Mode. Fortunately, the latest version of the Android client finally reveals that work is underway.

About APK Insight: In this ‘APK Insight’ post, we’ve dismantled the latest version of the app uploaded to the Google Play Store. When we decompile these files (in the case of Android apps, the so-called APK), we are able to see different lines of code within that hint at potential future features. Keep in mind that Google may or may not ship these features, and our interpretation of what it is may be incomplete. We will try to enable people close to that finish, however, to show them how they will look in case they get on the ship. With that in mind, read on.

Google Maps has a dark theme today, but is only in navigation mode while driving. That look applies directly to the map, as well as most UI-bottom sheets and various buttons. A curious exception is the white Google assistant microphone icon in the upper-right corner and less than the degree above the green panel, indicating the name and direction of the street.

Each part of the UI has a bright background, while the map layers are mostly in different shades of gray. Version 10.50 of Google Maps contains many strings that explicitly refer to “DARK_MODE_SETTING”.

<શબ્દ નામ = "DARK_MODE_TOOLTIP_TEXT"> Go to settings for light theme

<શબ્દ નામ = "DARK_MODE_SETTINGS_DIALOG_TITLE"> Appearance

It describes a new “Appearance” menu in Settings where you will have three options: Default Device Theme, Dark Theme and Light Theme.

<શબ્દ નામ = "DARK_MODE_SETTINGS_DIALOG_FOLLOW_SYSTEM_THEME"> Default on device theme

<શબ્દ નામ = "ડાર્ક_એમઓડીએસઇટીટીંગ્સ_ડીઆઈએલજી_ડાર્ક_થેમ"> Dark theme


This choice will be significantly independent of the researcher’s appearance:.

<શબ્દ નામ = "ડાર્ક_એમઓડીએસએસટીટીંગ્સ_ડીઆઈએલજી_એનએવી_એસટીટીંગ્સ_ડિસ્ક્રિપ્શન"> In Settings, you can also change the look of the map during navigation

<શબ્દનું નામ = "Dark_MODE_SETTINGS_DIALOG_NAV_SETTINGS_LINK"> Go to navigation settings

Various “Night” properties and icons were also introduced with version 10.50.

Creating a dark map is probably an effort and not as easy as vertical colors. Google Maps includes street and place names, as well as various pins and icons. Everything needs to be optimized so that visibility is not affected. Meanwhile, switching from white to Google’s standard dark gray for everything else should be more straightforward.

Hopefully, Google Maps Dark Theme will come later. We briefly Saw render With the launch of Android 10 last September, but that was before the big maps Redesign earlier this year.
