Google Maps incognito mode is rolling out for selective users

Published on September 21, 2019

The incognito mode in Google Maps which was announced back in the Google I/O is now rolling out for some selective users. Some of the selective users are getting early access to the service. This limited activation of the service is due to the test and analysis.

The incognito mode of Google Maps will allow a user to search for a direction without getting stored in his timeline. The service will be available for all the Android users after this testing period. The primary logic behind this limited availability is to check whether the incognito is working fine or not.

As a GIF posted by the XDA, the usual blue location indicator also turns black blue or dark grey in color when working with the Google Maps application.
