Google Maps is an entirely different thing than OSM. OSM is all about free geodata while Google Maps is about online map stuff only.
The strength of OSM in the area of online maps are special maps for all kinds of purposes which are simply not available in the proprietary area.
Examples in other areas are Maps for Hikers, Cyclists, Skiing and many others as well as Maps for Offline use in GPS receivers etc.
