Legacy cloud-based maps styling overview

Select platform: Android iOS JavaScript Web Service

The legacy version of cloud-based maps styling is still available and you can still use your legacy map styles, but only if your project is eligible to opt out of the latest version. Google recommends you create any new map styles in the latest version, and update your legacy styles as soon as possible. For more information, see Update to the latest version.
