The Maps Embed API overview

The Maps Embed API lets you place an interactive map, or Street View panorama on your web page with a simple HTTP request; no JavaScript required.

You can set the Maps Embed API URL as the src attribute of an iframe:

<iframe
  width="600"
  height="450"
  style="border:0"
  loading="lazy"
  allowfullscreen
  src="https://www.google.com/maps/embed/v1/place?key=API_KEY
    &q=Space+Needle,Seattle+WA">
</iframe>
