Legacy cloud-based maps styling

The legacy version of cloud-based maps styling is still available and you can still use your legacy map styles. However, to take advantage of the latest cloud-based maps styling, Google recommends you create any new map styles in the latest version, and update your legacy styles as soon as possible. For more information, see Update to the latest version.
