Microsoft has pushed a new update to the Windows 10 Maps for non Insiders today. The app has been bumped to version 5.1609. 2651.0, which is the same version that the company pushed to Windows Insiders on the Fast Ring just two weeks ago. The latest bits brings dark theme options for both the app and the maps, and you can choose to enable them in the settings. Additionally, the changelog mentions a new feature to quickly check traffic for your commute. Here are the full release notes:

  • Enjoy dark or light app colors—they now change to match your system settings.
  • Quickly check traffic for your commute, including live cameras, where available.
The dark theme options in the settings.
You can enable a dark theme for the maps as well.

The Windows 10 Maps was one of the few remaining native apps that didn’t have a dark theme option so it’s nice to finally get it. You can download the new update from the download link below, let us know in the comments what do you think of this new dark theme option.
