Google Earth gets revival with tools for exploration
Apr 19, 2017, 09:43
After two years of development, Google has launched a redesigned Earth app that adds a variety of new features that may just cause you to pack up your bags and start exploring. It makes the experience of using the app more immersive, and quite interesting. Some of the first "Voyages" include a BBC Earth-produced "Natural Treasures" tour that will take you on a journey through a myriad of breath-taking locations divided into six categories, as well as a Sir David Attenborough-led documentary on birds, called "Beautiful Birds-of-Paradise". With it, you can see in 3D, practically any place on Earth with more details like the city of NY, the Grand Canyon of Colorado, or the City of Arts and Sciences of Valencia. There's also a new 3D button that will allow users to explore new places in 3D instead of the archaic flat satellite imagery. One of the main new features on Google Earth is called Voyager, which is capable of providing users with an interactive guided tour. According to Google, it will become available for iOS and other browsers in the near future.
Regardless of how nifty these features are, you do need to know what you want to search on Google Earth. While that sounds good on first glance, as you may run Google Earth now without having to install software or an application first, the new version is limited to Google Chrome currently on the desktop.

In conjunction with Earth Day, Google has taken the wraps off their entirely new version of Google Earth available on both the Web, via Chrome, and Android. Google says there are "more than 50 immersive stories in Voyager, and more added weekly". You won't be limited to sharing links.
But the best update by far is the addition of a 3D view, which allows you to explore any location in rich 3D detail. Besides, you can also click on the die icon in the left sidebar to let Google Earth fly you to a random location on the planet.
