No Globe View in Google maps (on the host) if a parallels VM is running

    Recently (with a Google Chrome update?) I see the following behavior in the host OS (MacOS X):
    Whenever I have *any* parallels VM running Google Maps has the Globe View is disabled (greyed out) in the Google Chrome browser. (Note: the suggested issue in that google support forum article does not apply if I stop the parallels VM the globe view checkbox gets re-enabled). Interestingly the issue does not happen in Safari, Globe View is always available in google maps there)

    I was wondering if anyone has run into this issue and if there is a workaround?
    Obviously I have not tried MacOS X and/or Parallels updates/upgrades (it is not clear if that would help) or maybe I can hope that some Chrome update will eventually address this?

    • Host OS: MacOS X 10.15.7 (Intel CPU)
    • Parallels Desktop Version 17.1.4 (51567)
    • Chrome Browser: Version 108.0.5359.98 (Official Build)
