Internet privacy advocates will be happy to hear that Google Maps is currently testing an Incognito mode.
Mashable reports that Maps Incognito is closer to a release, as evidenced by a tweet from XDA Developers Editor-In-Chief Mishaal Rahman saying the beta was available to early testers. Google announced that the feature was being worked on in May.
Similar to the incognito feature on the Chrome browser, the Maps feature can be turned on via app settings. It will cease collecting data on searches, sharing your location, and tailoring suggestions based on search history.
This is only slightly different from using the Maps web app in an incognito Chrome browser, which has been available since 2016.
Tech Radar also reports that the closed beta is also going to be available on Android Auto, the in-car Android platform.
An official release date hasn’t been announced yet, but Engadget reports that the release of a closed beta indicates that we could see it in the near future.
