Get the New Look Google Maps in Your Maps
With the huge new changes to Google Maps I've been wondering today if the Google Maps team were about to announce v4 of the Google Maps API.
The short answer is 'no'.
But you can get the new base map tiles in your Maps API maps from today. If you add
google.maps.visualRefresh = true;
to your code you will see the new fresher looking map tiles in your own API maps.
As well as the new map tiles you will also get the new default map marker from the new Google Maps and a new information window style (both have no shadows).
You can view the new base maps in a Google Maps API map on More Than A Map.
