The Google Earth that was launched in 2004 and became one of the most fascinating programs to use is now revamped by Google. Google just launched the all new Google Earth.
The Features of Google Earth 2
The most distinct feature of Google Earth 2 is ‘Voyager’. Opening up the new Google Earth you will now see a Ship’s wheel clicking which will take you to a new world of discovery and that act of finding new things around the world. For this, Google has collaborated with BBC and DigitalGlobe who specialises in pulling out detailed stories about a particular place. Interestingly, this includes Street View, pre-recorded 360-degree videos of both outsides and inside a building and even underwater. As of now, Google has rolled out 40 collections of these tours and is expected to expand with time.
Other than Voyager, the famous ‘I’m feeling lucky’ search spin from Google Search has made its way to Google Earth as well. The ‘I’m Feeling Lucky option will instantly transport you to a random place where it will then pull up cards giving you information about the local culture and other relevant facts and is being represented by a ‘die’.
Google claims to have extracted 20,000 such places where it can show off its Knowledge Cards. Once landed to a random place, you can also navigate to some related places around the globe.
Moreover, the new Google Earth also brushes up the 3D settings around the world. Tapping onto the 3D button will allow you to see any place from any angle, claims Google. Once satisfied with an angle, you can now share a postcard with your friends and family.
Lastly, Google has also introduced something called ‘This is Home’ where you can explore different homes from different cultures around the world.
Overall, The app is exciting and better than before. So go check out the all new Google Earth in Play Store and on your desktops
