How can I enable new Google Maps? It seems I’m still stuck with the old version. Can't find a link or switch. When I click “Try it now”, it takes me to the preview tour.

I’m from Canada; was it released just for US?

    Does this link asks you to login?

Try accessing it from this link—it should lead you to a login screen. After the login, you should be able to access the new version.


I'd previously disabled the new Google Maps "permanently" and clicking the various links which were supposed to force it to reappear failed as did the link in the other answer, always returning me to classic maps.

I had to clear all of my cookies for google.com and its subdomains in order to get the new Google Maps back.
