What’s New with Google Earth 6?

Google has just announced the newest update on Google Earth. Introducing Google Earth 6! This version updates the previous version with new twist which includes Integrated Street View. That's right, this is a collaboration of both platforms into one. Hop on to the demo to see how it changes everyone's street life.

Google surprised everyone with Google Earth 6. The latest version is available today for OS X, Windows and Linux, respectively. This update includes the Integrated Street View. This means the Google Maps Street View experience is now fully integrated into Google Earth. Pegman (the little guy that represents your Street View position) is now docked along the Google Earth navigators. He launches Street View just like what he does on Google Maps.

The 3D trees are also present in this upgrade. Prior to this, Google Earth has supported 3D buildings for some time, it is just recently that Google redefined the environment. The add-ons allow those using the walking navigations to take direct paths and not walk on trees.

The presence of the Better Historical Imagery is also another stunning addition to Google Earth 6. It allows the users to look at map views of times like Warsaw in 1935, London in 1945 and Port-au-Prince Haiti before and after the January earthquake. This feature was added in Google Earth 5 but the new upgrade gives it a clearer view of places and objects.

This one is a consummate overhaul for Google Earth. You’re going to love this upgrade. If you’re still not convinced, maybe the demo video after the skip will change your mind:

Google Walking Navigation and Street View for Android

Going places? Use the new Google Walking Navigation and Street View to get there fast and easy.

We are starting to think that the men behind Google are making it a habit to announce new upgrades every month. They’re rolling new things and today’s upgrade involves Android. From this day, Android phones with 1.6 and up versions will have an added attraction for you to enjoy.

This new feature is called Walking Navigation Beta and Street View. The first one is tagged into Google Maps for mobile 4.5, giving pedestrians a more invigorating routing option when using their feet to travel from one place to another. It’s still running on beta but the snitch is the “vibrate to turn” alert and the map’s capability to rotate with you.

Street View navigation is handing us the same stuff that we see on desktop browsers. But the obvious difference is that this time it is made for your phones. The new Google Maps will make it easier to find the places that you need to locate. If you need extra visual stimuli while the downloads are on progress hit play.
