Updated Google Street View for Android – Now with 250,000 miles of roads and special collections
Google Street View is a fantastic thing which was added to Google Maps and Google Earth back in 2007. It has received about 63 updates. And now we are again here to give you another big update of Google Street View. According to Google Blog, in fact it is the biggest ever update to Google Maps and Street View.
If we check the updated app in the Google Play store it only shows “bug fixes” in the what’s new section of app. But actually Google has updated around 250,000 miles of roadways in 17 different countries. The updated Google Street View covers areas of Macau, Singapore, Sweden, U.S., Thailand, Taiwan, Italy, Great Britain, Denmark, Norway, Canada, South Africa, Japan, Spain, France, Brazil and Mexico.
Google has also updated “Special Collections” of Street View for less traveled places. This feature is available in South Africa, Japan, Spain, France, Brazil and Mexico. Most of the new spots appear to be parks, landmarks, and other places they thought would be fun to explore.
From Google’s blog post:
“You can explore our many new places directly in Google Maps, including parks, city centers, castles and tourist attractions like Catherine Palace and Ferapontoy monastery in Russia, the Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall in Taiwan, or Stanley Park in Vancouver. You can even walk through the urban jungle of Singapore’s Fort Canning Park, without ever leaving home.”
