Nearly a decade after the Google Earth opened to public, a brand-new version of Google Earth—on the web and Android has been introduced this week.
The new Earth in two years of making brings alongwith different lenses for you to see the world, new stories while giving you a new perspective on the locations and experiences you cherish, plus new ways for to explore, learn and share.
First up, Voyager brings a new showcase of interactive guided tours with more than 50 immersive stories, and more added weekly, there are lots of adventures to choose from. Zoom in and see what adventures await you in the new Google Earth.
Voyager, also has a new story called “This is Home,” that take you to a journey into traditional homes from cultures around the world.
“I’m feeling lucky,” a new feature that takes you somewhere unexpected with the click of a button to uncover hidden gems from over 20,000 different places curated around the world.
When you reach your interested location, just open a Knowledge Card to learn history and facts about the place and see more pictures of it. You can also flip through the stack of cards and discover related places.
By clicking on the new 3D button, you can see any place from any angle. And, once you find a new view, you can share a Postcard of the exact view with anyone. They can click the link to jump right to where you were (virtually) standing.
The new Google Earth is rolling out this week on the web in Chrome and on Android. iOS and other browsers will get in the near future.
