Other versions of Google Maps on the web
If you’re using Google Maps on your computer and the map doesn’t scroll or pan smoothly there are other versions you can use.
Switch between Google Maps versions
There are two versions of Google Maps on your computer you can use:
3D Mode: This is the standard Google Maps experience. You’ll see smooth zooming and transitions, 3D buildings, satellite images, and additional detail. Open Maps in 3D Mode.
2D Mode: This Google Maps version may work better on older or lower performance computers. It doesn’t have 3D images or WebGL, and it uses simple zooming and transitions. Open Maps in 2D Mode.
Use Google Search instead
If your computer meets the requirements but you still aren't seeing the full version of Maps with 3D, check your browser. Some browsers block the WebGL technology used to make 3D images. To find out which browsers might cause problems, see this list for more information. To see if your web browser can use WebGL, check this website.
