On your desktop or laptop, please open the Google Maps. If you're using Maps in Lite mode, you’ll see a lightning bolt at the footer and you won't be able to measure the distance between points.
Right-click on your starting point.
select Measure distance.
Click anywhere on the map to create a path to measure. Please add another point, click anywhere on the map.
Optional: Drag a path to move it, or click a point to remove it.
At the bottom, you’ll see the distance in miles and kilometers.

Remember the shortest distance across any sphere is a line across the surface, that if made into a plane through the sphere, would cut the sphere into two equally sized hemi-spheres. .
On the Earth such lines are all the meridian/longitude lines and the equator. Any other line forms a longer distance.
