We recently reported that such users who tried accessing Google Maps via Internet Explorer on a Windows Phone devices were redirected to the Google home page. It was revealed that the problem emanated from the fact that IE doesn’t use WebKit which, Google holds, is essential to provide a good Maps experience.

The issue was taken up across the social media and was actively being reported on multiple technology sites, including ours. Apparently discerning that this just became something important, Google has now deigned to issue an official statement about it.

The search giant stated, “We periodically test Google Maps compatibility with mobile browsers to make sure we deliver the best experience for those users. In our last test, IE mobile still did not offer a good maps experience with no ability to pan or zoom and perform basic map functionality.”

It was precisely for this reason, Google says, that it has been redirecting IE users to its home page. However, the good news for Windows Phone users is that according to the company, recent improvements in IE mobile has somewhat improved the user experience. And thanks to them, Google Maps now deliver a comparatively better experience to the users.

The company further stated that in view of this, it is now working on removing the redirect after which, users will finally be able to access Google Maps through IE Mobile on their Windows Phone devices.
