Saturday, January 12, 2013

Google has activated the web version of its popular Maps for Windows Phone users. After removing a redirect that pushes Windows Phone users to its search engine.

Google has put this redirect few days ago and was pushing the windows phone users that were requesting its web version maps from Internet Explorer to its on search engine, Google claimed Microsoft Internet Explorer "did not offer a good maps experience" in previous versions of Windows Phone.

 Google and Microsoft have both been avoiding each other recently, with Microsoft criticizing an FTC settlement and Google announcing its plans to stop Exchange ActiveSync protocol for its own Gmail account users at the end of January.

Google's move to return access to its Maps web service on Windows Phone finishes this particular battle, but the war has not finished between these giants.
