Read the documentation.

JavaScript

// This example creates a rectangle based on the viewport
// on any 'zoom-changed' event.

function initMap() {
  var map = new google.maps.Map(document.getElementById("map"), {
    zoom: 11,
    center: { lat: 40.74852, lng: -73.981687 },
    mapTypeId: "terrain"
  });

  var rectangle = new google.maps.Rectangle();

  map.addListener("zoom_changed", function() {
    // Get the current bounds, which reflect the bounds before the zoom.
    rectangle.setOptions({
      strokeColor: "#FF0000",
      strokeOpacity: 0.8,
      strokeWeight: 2,
      fillColor: "#FF0000",
      fillOpacity: 0.35,
      map: map,
      bounds: map.getBounds()
    });
  });
}

CSS

/* Always set the map height explicitly to define the size of the div
       * element that contains the map. */
#map {
  height: 100%;
}

/* Optional: Makes the sample page fill the window. */
