Google Maps can now be embedded in websites Google has announced that their popular Maps service has been updated to allow for the embedding of maps into websites.
Ken Hoetmer of Google Maps says: "[Earlier this week] we introduced a feature in the new Google Maps that enables you to embed a Google Map by copying and pasting an HTML snippet. Make sure you're opted in, and then head over to Google Maps, click on the gear icon on the lower right, and give it a go.

Like the new Google Maps, embedded maps are now built for you. Your users can sign in to these maps to see relevant content, like their saved places from Google Maps. Conversely, they can also save a location from your embedded map for viewing on Google Maps for desktop or mobile. To top it off, embedded maps are free of usage limits, so you don't have to worry about quotas."

Additionally, Google has updated their ad experience to include more relevant local businesses.

Head over to Maps on your mobile device or desktop to get the update.
