Along with other features and bug fixes in the 0.57.2 for Android and 1.27.2 for iOS, one is supposedly a new night-mode map

Added new night-mode map and encounter music.

I am hearing the new music, but I have not a difference in the map prior to the update. What updates were made for this night-mode map?

  • This article makes it sound like it's just an option somewhere, but I've yet to find it.

  • Probably something similar to how Google maps switches at night time from white on black to black on white.

  • @Venemous Maybe that article is confusing it for the battery saver? At any rate, there's no new map. See my answer. Feb 18, 2017 at 4:25

This is a classic case of syntactic ambiguity. What the text really means is,

Added new night-mode map [music] and encounter music.

As evidence, you'll notice that the map music is now different at night. There's no new map, just new music.
