Browser Support

The Maps JavaScript API and Maps Embed API support the following web browsers:

Desktop
  • The current version of Microsoft Edge (Windows)
  • The current and previous versions of Firefox (Windows, macOS, Linux)
  • The current and previous versions of Chrome (Windows, macOS, Linux)
  • The current and previous versions of Safari (macOS)

In order to free up resources to deliver customer-requested features available to modern browsers, Google Maps Platform is ending support for Internet Explorer 11. Microsoft ended support for IE11 in 2021 and encouraged migration to Microsoft Edge.

Beginning in August 2021, a warning message started to appear to Internet Explorer 11 users at the top of maps. The last version of the Maps JavaScript API to support Internet Explorer 11 is v3.47. Support for Internet Explorer 11 will be entirely discontinued in November 2022. This also applies to the IE mode in Edge.
