Earth is amazing. Not only is it the only planet that hosts life (that we know of, at least), but it also has some breathtaking landscapes to show.
Many of us dream of travelling across the globe, but most of us can’t go on a trip of a few months or more due to various reasons – time, money, work, or others.
Also, the fear of exploring is widespread. There are numerous language barriers and areas of the world that are very hostile for some people to visit. Many can’t stand the desert’s heat or the Siberian cold.
Thankfully, we live in an age of technology. Google comes to the rescue!
The Google product we are going to talk about today is Google Earth.
Google Earth allows users to browse satellite imagery of most of the planet. Google even introduced the Street View option, which allows you to navigate the streets of your neighbourhood (or many other places across the globe) from the comfort of your couch!
Google Earth allows you to jump from one side of the Earth to another, thousands of miles away, in an instant. You can use pinch-to-zoom to focus on the regions that are of interest to you, and you can explore the world at any time. You can go sightseeing wherever you are. If you are a car enthusiast, you can navigate to a foreign country and go car spotting! Isn’t that convenient?
The app has recently reached version 126.96.36.199.
Here are the patch notes that accompanied the new update:
“An improved search experience now includes locations, suggested points of interest, data layers, and guided tours in Voyager.”
