The new Google Maps fully launched a couple weeks ago and some users want to be able to go back and forth between the new and the old version.
Daniel the Google Maps Community Manager shared special URLs that let you either go to the lite version, 3D version or back to the classic version.
- Full version: https://www.google.com/maps/preview/?force=webgl
- Lite mode: https://www.google.com/maps/?force=canvas
- Your browser's default mode: https://www.google.com/maps/preview/?force=clear
- Revert to classic Google Maps: https://www.google.com/maps?output=classic
