New Google Maps Now Open to Everyone — No Invite NeededPosted: July 17, 2013
The new Google Maps web app is now open to everyone — and no invites are necessary.
Under the "desktop" section of the new Google Maps’ about page, users are prompted to click "Try now." Doing so will send them to a preview of the revamped app. From now on, whenever users visit the maps.google.com URL, they will be redirected togoogle.com/maps/preview.
Similarly, users who still have the old version of Maps will see an option to "Get the new Google Maps" on the app’s left-hand side.
