Google Maps: Single-click to Smart Navigation in Street View

Smart Navigation in Street View allowed you to jump to a new panorama by double-clicking on a place or object. Now you can quickly navigate to those images with just a single click. Those who haven’t used “click-to-go” before, notice that as you move your mouse around in a street view panorama, a disk or rectangle follows the cursor (aka pancake). This pancake not only makes the panorama feel three-dimensional, but shows you where you can jump to a new panorama to get a different view.

A few more clicks will take you through the colorful neighboring streets. Through your virtual exploration, you can see a restaurant in the distance behind the below rectangular pancake.

With a single click on pancake, you’re transported right in front of that location and the pancake reappears – this time with a magnifying glass. This means you can zoom in to get an even closer view.

Also it easier to zoom out. Once zoomed in, the magnifying glass changes from a plus sign to a minus sign, signifying that the next click will zoom all the way out.
