The Google Maps app gets incredibly dark on Android, at least. The company has announced today that the dark theme option it has been testing in the app since September 2020 will be finally released.

The dark mode, which takes things well beyond the previously available color option in a night mode, is accessible under “theme” in the application settings menu.

Google revealed the release of Dark Mode as part of a batch of new Android features including several Android Auto updates. Besides personalized wallpapers, Android Auto now also features sports. Crack Trivia, Jeopardy! , Song Quiz and Are you feeling grateful for Google itself? It’s going to be available. You can access the games by saying “Hey Google, play a game.”

Android Auto also has a split-screen feature to support maps with media controls, much as Apple began doing in CarPlay on iOS 13 in 2019. Google adds shortcuts to the Android Auto launch screen, too, enabling easy access to weather or setting your home thermostat. (Though this functionality would only be available in cars with bigger displays.)
