QuickMapServices: in gray

New version of QuickMapServices is out. QuickMapServices is a QGIS plugin for painless adding basemaps as layers (more about the plugin). Update it in QGIS to have new version.

In the new version you can turn any added basemap into grayscale and also adjust contrast and brightness. To do it, simply open basemap properties and turn on Grayscale.
