Ola Cabs fully exits Google Maps

Ola Cabs chief Bhavish Aggarwal, in a recent post on X (formerly Twitter), said that the ride-hailing giant has fully transitioned from Google Maps to its in-house developed Ola Maps, achieving substantial annual savings of around Rs 100 crore.

"After exiting Azure last month, we’ve now completely moved away from Google Maps. We used to spend Rs 100 crore a year, but this month, that expense has dropped to zero by switching entirely to our in-house Ola Maps! Please check your Ola app and update it if necessary," Aggarwal wrote.


He highlighted that Ola Cabs will soon introduce several new features, including street view, neural radiance fields, indoor images, 3D maps, and drone maps in the coming months. He said the Ola Maps API is available on the Krutrim cloud.

Aggarwal also revealed that the company will soon will publish a detailed blog providing insights into the mapping technology used in its newly launched feature, Ola Maps.
