I've just installed QGIS 3.2.2 and after installation, tried to use the Plug in Manager to install the OpenLayers plugin. But it's not in the list to install.

Any ideas?


The OpenLayers Plugin is deprecated.

It is recommended to use QuickMapServices or QGIS core functionality instead of OpenLayers Plugin because the latter has many issues. One very famous issue is the projection.

If you still want to use the OpenLayers Plugin

You need to check Show also experimental plugin from the Plugin manager -> Settings because OpenLayers Plugin is listed under experimental plugins.

  • The QuickMapServices plugin doesn't have Google Maps. – Donny V. Dec 26 '18 at 15:13

    @DonnyV. Use Search QMS and write Google in the search bar, and your will get Google Maps. – ahmadhanb Dec 27 '18 at 0:59
