This should not come as a surprise, since Google told us this was coming back a few months ago, but now it is here. Google Maps Business Views and Google Views is now officially offline. It will be coming back in a new form, but it is now gone.

There are some complaints, even though we had a heads up, in the Google Maps Help forums and on Twitter.

Ryan Schilling added that the transfer was made to the maps app with a new tab for reviews and photos but it is missing content that was there previously. So maybe it is still being transferred? I am not sure.

Here is a picture from Ryan:

Either way, Google said these views that were made by independent Google users will come back soon, in another form.
