Google’s embeddable map feature out next week from The Sydney Morning Herald reports that Google Maps will be adding a YouTube like embed maps feature, as early as next week.
Carl Sjogreen, Google Australia’s senior product manager, announced this feature in Sydney today. The feature will be rolled out worldwide in about a week’s time, said Carl Sjogreen.
