This could be bad.
Reports are starting to roll in about the web version of Google Maps not being accessible for Windows Phone 8 and 7 users. We can confirm that maps.google.com on both our WP8 and 7 devices redirects to google.com. This comes after a particularly heated month between Google and Microsoft.
The big question here is if this is just a bug or a purposeful move by Google. If the latter is true we are in for a wild ride. Google Maps in the browser has always been a nice fail safe in case Bing or Nokia’s maps can’t get the job done. If Google is purposefully blocking only Windows Phone users from using services like YouTube, and now Maps, there is some serious bad blood there. Hopefully this is just a bug and Google fixes it soon.
