Submission + - Google Maps Click-to-Call Discontinued (webpronews.com) 1

RulerOf writes: I went to look up a local butcher this morning that I needed place a phone order with as I usually do, by finding them on Google Maps and utilizing the "Call" feature that Google added to thier maps service back in November of last year. I've found it to be an incredibly useful tool, but I was rife with disappointment this morning when I scoured the Google Maps page, only to find that the "Call" button had gone missing.

I later confirmed my fears, ironically through a Google News search, by finding an article detailing that Google has killed its click-to-call program.

  • I reported this last week and I think it got marked down because of the false rumor of it being removed about a year ago... this time however it is for certain. I have tried using it with several browsers and settings and it has just flat vanished.
