The big Google Earth announcement that everyone was excited about, landed today. As many of my friends predicted, a big feature is the new web version of Earth, and it works on Google Chrome.
If you are on Google Chrome, go to https://earth.google.com/web/ and start using this new version right away!
Google has released an updated version of the Android app, and also a new web version of Earth. This web version works only on Google Chrome for now. An iOS app update and support for other browsers are expected in coming weeks:
Get the new Google Earth now on the web in Chrome; on Android as it rolls out this week; and on iOS and other browsers in the near future. (Of course, you can still access and download Google Earth 7 for desktop.)
This update is not just about the web version. Google Earth has gained a bunch of exciting new features. There are interactive tours, an “I’m Feeling Lucky” button, and Knowledge Cards about the famous spots and cities that you look up on Earth.
Go ahead and explore now, on Google Chrome!
