Google Maps For iOS Adds Night Mode

Google Maps For iOS Adds Night Mode

iPhone: The iPhone version of Google Maps was updated today with a handy new night mode feature alongside the ability to label places and edit photo captions.

The night mode is the biggest new feature and works a little differently than you might expect. Instead of switching over to night mode when you’re in a dark area, it does it whenever the clock says it’s nighttime. It’s a little weird, but it’s certainly nice to get blinded every time you use your phone at night.

You can also now label places on a custom map, which is nice for adding custom addresses or whatever else you’d need.

  • A more accurate description of the changes would mention that “night-mode” only works when navigating, not in general use of the app. So bright screen until then.
