Last week, Google launched a new version of Google Earth which has new features. This app is considered to be one of the most amazing ones. It was launched back in 2001, but it did not receive as many updates as Google would usually implement for other technologies it owns. Due to the latest update, Google Earth is full of curated video content, 3D images, and several other new features.
- Google Earth was recently updated and offers a lot more opportunities for users.
- Hopefully, people will learn to appreciate this planet more after seeing all the wonders it hides.
- The new features which were implemented help people see the world in 3D.
The new updates will make people want to book a trip to some of the amazing places they are looking at using the app. Hopefully, the new updates will make people appreciate this planet more and probably they would like to protect it more after they discover so many fantastic places which are threatened by climate change.
Some of those who have already used the new version made a list of things which everybody should try when utilizing the app Google Earth. Firstly, all those who decide to travel the world by using Google Earth should enjoy 3D maps. In previous versions of Google Earth, it was possible for users to see only certain buildings in 3D after marking ‘3D Buildings’ in the Layers area of the app.
Nevertheless, in the newest update, users can see the whole world in 3D. Isn’t that spectacular? When people search for a particular location, a button with ‘2D/3D’ pops up on the right-hand corner, at the bottom of the screen, offering them the opportunity to see the selected destination in another dimension.
Secondly, if Google Earth users are already familiar with David Attenborough’s way of narrating and Planet Earth II was not enough for those who love nature, they should try “Epic Hunts Caught on Camera.” Google developed a collaboration with BBC Earth, and Google Earth now features several videos narrated by David Attenborough. These videos will start playing on YouTube along with the right-hand side of the Earth view.
Users who are passionate about underwater journeys or the life of chimpanzees should look at the content from Dr. Sylvia Earle and primatologist Jane Goodall. However, if there are others who are more interested in literature, they can see the places where Hemingway wrote his works. Tthe new features of Google Earth provide a “Voyage” tab which can be used to take a virtual trip to the Samburu National Reserve in Kenya, the Galapagos Islands, and other UNESCO World Heritage sites.
Now, the new Google Earth is also equipped with the “I’m feeling lucky” button, being a nice way to plan the next trip to amazing destinations.
