The Google Maps JavaScript API team regularly updates the API with new features, bug fixes, and performance improvements. You can indicate which version of the API to load within your application by specifying it in the v parameter of the Google Maps JavaScript API bootstrap request. Read more about versioning.

This changelog lists releases by date and version number, along with associated changes.

To receive updates on new Maps API versions, please subscribe to the v3-notify group or the v3 user group.

3.30

16 August 2017

Version 3.30 of the Google Maps JavaScript API is now available as the experimental version. See the guide to API versioning.

Changes:

3.29

16 May 2017

Version 3.29 of the Google Maps JavaScript API is now available as the experimental version. See the guide to API versioning.

Changes:

  • The format of the pano ID for user generated (custom) Street View panoramas has changed due to underlying infrastructure updates. This slightly increases the number of available panoramas.
    • Requests for user generated (custom) panoramas using the old pano ID in the Google Maps JavaScript API still work. If you try to find a panorama using the position property of the StreetViewPanoramaOptions object, your result will contain the new pano ID. There is no requirement to map the old and new pano IDs, as both will remain valid.
    • If you depend on pano ID parsing and/or verification logic, note that the format of pano IDs may change.
    • You can report any issues using the issue tracker.
  • Updates on the fitBounds method of the google.maps.Map class.
    • To change the viewport while a map is hidden, you can now set the map to visibility: hidden, thereby ensuring that the map div has an actual size.

3.28

18 April 2017

The draggable property of the MapOptions object is deprecated. To disable dragging of the map on desktop devices, use the gestureHandling property and set it to none.

15 February 2017

Version 3.28 of the Google Maps JavaScript API is now available as the experimental version. See the guide to API versioning.

Changes:

  • Signed-in maps are no longer supported in version 3.28 and higher of the Google Maps JavaScript API.

3.27

2 February 2017

Fixed:

10 January 2017

You can now restrict Autocomplete predictions to only surface from multiple countries. You can do this by specifying up to 5 countries in the componentRestrictions field of the AutocompleteOptions.

15 November 2016

Version 3.27 of the Google Maps JavaScript API is now available as the experimental version. (See the guide to API versioning.)

Changes:

  • A new gestureHandling option in the MapOptions object helps you optimise your users' experience when interacting with the map on mobile devices. The available values are:
    • greedy: The map always pans (up or down, left or right) when the user swipes (drags on) the screen. In other words, both a one-finger swipe and a two-finger swipe cause the map to pan.
    • cooperative: The user must swipe with one finger to scroll the page and two fingers to pan the map. If the user swipes the map with one finger, an overlay appears on the map, with a prompt telling the user to use two fingers to move the map. View the sample above on a mobile device to see cooperative mode in action.
    • none: The map is not pannable or pinchable.
    • auto (default): The behavior is either cooperative or greedy, depending on whether the page is scrollable or not.

    For more details and examples, see the developer's guide.

  • The fullscreen control is visible by default on mobile devices, so users can easily enlarge the map. When the map is in fullscreen mode, users can pan the map using one or two fingers. Note: iOS doesn't support the fullscreen feature. The fullscreen control is therefore not visible on iOS devices.

Signed-in maps deprecated

6 October 2016

The signed-in feature is deprecated. Versions 3.27 and earlier of the Google Maps JavaScript API continue to support signed-in maps. A future version will no longer support signed-in maps, but will continue to support features that save a place to Google Maps using an info window or the SaveWidget. Read more about signed-in maps.

Change in via waypoints in Directions service response

29 August 2016

The via_waypoints field in the Directions service response contains an array of waypoints that were not specified in the original request. The via_waypoints field will continue to appear in the draggable directions response, but is deprecated in the alternative route response. Version 3.27 will be the last version of the API that supports via_waypoints in alternative routes.

The recommended approach is to request alternative routes, then display all routes as non-draggable plus the main route as draggable. Users can drag the main route until it matches an alternative route. The via_waypoints field is available on the resulting route (dragged by the user).

3.26

18 August 2016

Version 3.26 of the Google Maps JavaScript API is now available as the experimental version. (See the guide to API versioning.)

Changes:

  • A new Street View renderer brings rendering improvements, including smoother transitions and animations, improved object modeling, better support for mobile, and clearer controls. See the details on the Google Geo Developers Blog.
  • The API now supports device orientation events in Street View, so users on mobile devices can look around by moving their phones. As a developer, you can enable or disable this feature. See the developer's guide for details.

3.25

25 May 2016

Version 3.25 of the Google Maps JavaScript API is now available as the experimental version. (See the guide to API versioning.)

Internet Explorer 9 support ends

2 May 2016

As of April 30th, 2016, Internet Explorer 9 is no longer officially supported by the Google Maps JavaScript API. See the list of supported browsers.

3.24

14 April 2016

Changes:

  • You can now disable the clickability of map icons. A map icon represents a point of interest, also known as a POI. See the setClickableIcons method on google.maps.Map.

31 March 2016

Fixed:

  • Issue 9507: Links in Street View now work again in Safari.

28 March 2016

Fixed:

  • Issue 9394: Info windows automatically close when the user opens an info window for a base map icon, and vice versa.
  • Show a white Google logo when the base map is styled using the styles property on the map (previously, the logo became white only when applying a style using a StyledMapType).

18 March 2016

Fixed:

  • Issue 9424: new LatLng({lat: 0, lng: 0})
  • Fixed mouse panning with the new Street View renderer (with google.maps.streetViewViewer = 'photosphere').

15 February 2016

Changes:

  • The ability to opt out of the new controls using google.maps.controlStyle = 'azteca' has been removed.

3.23

18 January 2016

Changes:

  • This release includes a new full-screen control for the map. Users can click the control to maximize the map so that it takes up the entire screen. By default, this control is turned off. You can enable it in MapOptions, and configure it using the FullscreenControlOptions. Its default position is RIGHT_TOP.
  • The full-screen control for Street View is enabled by default. You can disable it via StreetViewPanoramaOptions and configure it using the FullscreenControlOptions. Its default position is now RIGHT_TOP.

4 January 2016

Fixed:

  • Issue 9009: When synthesizing mouse events from touch, use the left button instead of the middle button, for compatibility with jQuery.
  • Issue 4201: The API no longer makes use of eval(). Therefore, it is now possible to use the API without the unsafe-eval Content Security Policy directive.

21 December 2015

Changes:

  • Map Option to disable the sign in button for signed in maps (it will show the avatar for logged in users, it will still allow to sign in via signed in actions (e.g. starring) but it will no longer have the button to sign in on the map when this option is set).
  • The interface for text search requests has changed. The types parameter is deprecated as of March 1, 2016, replaced by a new type parameter which only supports one type per search request. Additionally, the establishment, food, and grocery_or_supermarket types will no longer be supported as search parameters (however these types may still be returned in the results of a search). Requests using the legacy types parameter will be supported until March 1, 2017, after which all text searches must use the new implementation.

2 December 2015

Changes:

  • The Autocomplete constructor verifies that it is given an input element.
  • Base map point of interest info windows show the same content in non-signed-in mode as signed-in mode.
  • Google Maps API externs for the Closure Compiler now specify a type (number or string) for enums.

25 November 2015

Changes:

  • Added .toJSON() methods toLatLng and LatLngBounds objects. These are intended to be used via JSON.stringify().

19 November 2015

Changes:

  • White google logo for styled maps

Fixed:

  • Issue 8674: Bug: Protect against img { max-width: 100%; }

3.22

7 January 2016

Fixed:

  • Issue 9009: When synthesizing mouse events from touch, use the left button instead of the middle button, for compatibility with jQuery.

10 November 2015

Changes:

  • The Directions service and the Distance Matrix service now return the predicted time in traffic (in response field duration_in_traffic) when the travel mode is driving. To receive predicted travel times, include a drivingOptions object literal in the request, specifying a current or future departureTime. You can also specify a trafficModel of optimistic, pessimistic, or best guess (default), to influence the assumptions used when calculating the travel time. For details, see the developer's guide for the Directions service and the Distance Matrix service. Note: The duration_in_traffic is available only to Google Maps APIs Premium Plan customers.

Deprecated:

  • The durationInTraffic request field is now deprecated. It was previously the recommended way for Google Maps APIs Premium Plan customers to specify whether the result should include a duration that takes into account current traffic conditions. You should now use the drivingOptions field instead.

5 November 2015

Deprecated:

  • The AdSense library has been deprecated since May 2015, and is no longer available in the experimental version of the Google Maps JavaScript API. The library will be removed from the release and frozen versions of the API soon. An alternative solution is Google AdSense. See the guide to creating an AdSense ad unit.

22 September 2015

Changes:

  • Added support for place IDs when making directions and distance matrix requests: DirectionsRequest.origin, DirectionsRequest.destination and DirectionsWaypoint.location now accept google.maps.Place objects, and DistanceMatrixRequest.origins and DistanceMatrixRequest.destinations now accept an array of google.maps.Place objects.

15 September 2015

Changes:

  • The default position and appearance has changed for many of the controls on the map and on Street View panoramas. The user experience is now consistent regardless of whether a map is using signed-in mode mode or not, and is also more consistent with the Google Maps website. If you want to continue using the earlier set of controls for a while, you can set google.maps.controlStyle = 'azteca' in v3.22.
  • The new Full Screen control in Street View allows the user to open the Street View panorama in fullscreen mode.

Deprecated:

  • The Overview Map control is no longer available.
  • The Pan control on the map is no longer available. To pan the view, users click and drag, or swipe, the map. (Note that the Pan control in Street View remains available.)
  • The Zoom control is available in only one style, and google.maps.ZoomControlStyle is therefore no longer available.

1 September 2015

Changes:

  • Added LatLngBounds literals
  • Fixed issue with overly broad CSS classes
  • Improved tile loading after the map is resized

Internet Explorer 8 support ends

31 August 2015

They work in all supported browsers (IE6.0+, Firefox 2.0+, Safari 3.1+, Chrome), which includes supported mobile devices.
  • Added new Map event "idle", fired when the map hasn't moved for a bit. Resolves Issue 1371.
  • Fixed incorrect LatLng values being returned from the click events.
  • Fixed pinch zoom bug on the iPhone. See Issue 1723.
