Tale of Two ArcGIS Online Map Viewers

The new Map Viewer (formerly known as Map Viewer beta) and Map Viewer Classic (formerly known as Map Viewer) are both available for production use by all customers. The new Map Viewer is fast, intuitive, and flexible. It is built using ArcGIS API for JavaScript 4.x, which supports improved functionality and new features. However, because the map viewers are built using different versions of ArcGIS API for JavaScript, some workflows are not yet available in the new Map Viewer. Use this functionality guide to understand when you need to use a specific map viewer to complete your workflow.
