    1.4.2 • Public • Published




    This library requires React v16.6 or later. To use the latest features (including hooks) requires React v16.8+. If you need support for earlier versions of React, you should check out react-google-maps

    This is complete re-write of the (sadly unmaintained) react-google-maps library. We thank tomchentw for his great work that made possible.

    @react-google-maps/api provides very simple bindings to the google maps api and lets you use it in your app as React components.

    Here are the main additions to react-google-maps that were the motivation behind this re-write

    Install @react-google-maps/api

    with NPM

    npm i -S @react-google-maps/api

    or Yarn

    yarn add @react-google-maps/api

    Main features

    • Simplified API
    • Uses the new Context API
    • Supports async React (StrictMode complient)
    • Removes lodash dependency => smaller bundle size 12.4kb gzip, tree-shakeable https://bundlephobia.com/result?p=@react-google-maps/api@1.4.0
    • forbids loading of Roboto fonts, if you set property preventGoogleFonts on <LoadScript preventGoogleFonts /> component


    Examples can be found in two places:

    1. Official docs (powered by react-styleguidist.
    2. A Gatsby app including some examples. See the examples folder
    3. Gatsby.js Demo


    Using the examples requires you to generate a google maps api key. For instructions on how to do that please see the following guide

    Migration from react-google-maps@9.4.5

    if you need an access to map object, instead of ref prop, you need to use onLoad callback on <GoogleMap /> component.


    // before
      ref={map => {
        const bounds = new window.google.maps.LatLngBounds();


      onLoad={map => {
        const bounds = new window.google.maps.LatLngBounds();
      onUnmount={map => {
        // do your stuff before map is unmounted

    Since 1.2.0 you can use onLoad and onMount props for each @react-google-maps/api component, ref does not contain API methods anymore.

    Since version 1.2.2 We added useGoogleMap hook, which is working only with React@16.8.1 and later versions.
