Google Earth 7.1 now available on Android
Earth explorers rejoice! Hot on the heels of the launch of Google Earth 7.1 on desktop, we're excited to introduce Google Earth 7.1 for Android. This new mobile version of Earth includes great new features like the addition of Street View, better search and directions and a streamlined interface.
Google Earth's 3D imagery has always been a great way to immerse yourself in the world. With the addition of Street View to Earth for Android, you can now check out the world from the street level too. Simply zoom into an area you'd like to explore and Pegman will appear in the right hand corner. Drag and drop the Pegman into the street and you'll be greeted by familiar Street View interface.
Search and directions are better too, making it easier to find what you need and get where you're going. Improved directions allow you to visualize step-by-step transit, walk and bike directions in full 3D. New search suggestions save some typing time and easy access to search result list will allow you browse all of the search results in detail with flick of your finger.
The new interface is also streamlined. A simple click of the Earth logo in top left lets you browse and enable Google Earth layers like Panoramio Photos, 3D buildings and Wikipedia.
You can download Google Earth 7.1 for Android now in the Google Play Store.
