We recently reported that Google was redirecting Windows Phone users who tried to access Google Maps via Internet Explorer mobile, to its home page. However, the search giant later announced that it would soon restore direct access to Google Maps for such users. And now, it finally has.


Google Maps

Google’s point of view was that the IE mobile offers poor functionality so that users are unable to utilize the Google Maps features to their fullest while using it. However, few cited that relationships between Microsoft and Google haven’t been exactly amicable over the recent years. And Google’s move may simply be meant to hurt the Windows Phone platform.

Whatever be the case, Google was quick to respond to the whole issue once it cropped up on technology websites and blogs. The company responded that IE mobile lacked WebKit support, which is why it was blocking Maps access through it.

However, it also announced that it had reviewed IE mobile and due to its recent improvements, the browser was a tad bit more qualified to run Google Maps. It went on to promise that it would remove the redirect.

Now, multiple users have reported that they are finally able to access Google Maps directly on their Windows Phone devices. At least for the Windows Phone users, this is good news.
