Microsoft today released a new update to its UWP Windows Map App for Windows 10 and Windows 10 Mobile. The update brings new features like the Dark Theme along with Traffic Hub for Insiders in the Fast Ring. The app has been bumped to new version 5.1609.2581.

Here is the full changelog:

  • Enjoy dark or light app colors—they now change to match your system settings. If you prefer your apps to be dark rather than light you can now have the Maps app follow your system setting for theme preference or always be light/dark. Plus you can choose to change the map theme too!
  • Quickly check traffic for your commute, including live cameras, where available. We have always treated your Home and Work places special and now you can check the traffic to your Home or Work locations at any time. Just tap on Traffic in the app bar and you can see traffic conditions to Home and Work and your most recently viewed traffic cameras so that you can stay on top of the road conditions along your route.

This was the most wanted feature by most of the Insiders and the company has now delivered the feature.Currently this update is only available for Insiders in Fast Ring and should be soon available for all consumers in the coming weeks.

Note: This feature is currently available only for Insiders on Fast Ring RS2.
