Google Earth is gaining a diligent dark theme

In the past few years it has switched to dark themes in many of the most popular mobile phone apps that all work directly with device system themes, the latest being that of Google Earth.

Dark themes have become partly big due to the ability to switch the mode officially in Android 10 and on. The downside is that not all developers quickly add the option for those who prefer not to have their eyes burned with bright UI elements and backgrounds.

Google wasn’t the fastest to give all of their particular programs access to a darkened UI, but eventually the company officially announced that Google Earth has a dark theme. The option is also available via mobile phones and desktops, which means you can go to and not come across with light white side menus and UI elements.

Google Earth is pleased to announce two new features that will add more features and usability to the online and mobile offering with a better understanding of your local accuracy and the ability to switch between light and dark modes.

On mobile, you will need to activate the mode by going to Settings> General> Dark theme. It’s possible to choose to have Google Earth respect your device’s System theme, but in our tests so far it doesn’t seem to work as expected – so it’s necessary to activate manually. We’re not sure if this is just a mini-bug that will be crushed because trying to activate this mode didn’t work during the first update.

At least with this new option on a dark theme from Google Earth, you can almost travel the planet until the wee hours without blinding yourself.
