I just updated QGIS to version 3.2. And noticed that the XYZ Tiles is missing. Are they removing it from QGIS 3, because I couldn't find any information about it? Does anyone know where I can find it or do I have to go back to QGIS 2 to get XYZ Tiles? Here is the screenshot for the current map source screen in QGIS 3.2.enter image description here


Although it doesn't appear in the "Add Layer" dialog, I can add XYZ tiles from this option in the "Browser" panel:

Right-click to add a new tile server connection, or choose one of the existing ones.

If you don't have a "Browser" panel open, use View... Panels... Browser to get one.

  • I found it. It is in the tab Browser2. I couldn't find it in Browser so I thought it was removed. Thanks, I appreciate it! – madlink Sep 17 '18 at 7:18
  • you can also find it in the browser tab of the data layer manager (top icon on the left). This has caught me out too, not sure why XYZ isn't treated the same as the other providers :/ – Steven Kay Sep 17 '18 at 7:21
  • That's weird, it should be in both Browsers. What happens if you create a new User Profile and start QGIS with that? – Spacedman Sep 17 '18 at 7:25
  • Yeah, it was odd to me. Thought they removed it or I forgot to install some plugins :D – madlink Sep 17 '18 at 7:26
  • @Spacedman Same, only appears in Browser2. In QGIS 2 it is in both. Don't know why. – madlink Sep 17 '18 at 7:29
