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.

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.
