Google Maps today added more of Germany, as the team recently added Germany and released the 360-degree, street level imagery of Germany's 20 largest cities, including Berlin, Hamburg, Munich and more. These panoramic images that virtually transport you without the hassle of a plane ticket are now accessible directly from Google Maps.

This latest release, also comes with some improvements about "obscure images," -- "Our new manual blurring process completely blocks out a house, car or person, but no longer cuts out all the surrounding scenery as well, such as a nearby street sign or trees. This enables us to respect requests for removal without blacking out the entire area," explains Google.

Also, this new blurring method is now rolled everywhere Street View is available for all new removal requests. As always, you should continue to use "Report a problem" tool.
