Google Earth is without a doubt one of the best apps ever made. This app basically gives everyone the ability to “fly” over the world and discover new places directly through their smartphones or PCs. The best thing about Google Earth is the fact it doesn’t only give people a way of exploring the world, but also a way of showing off their locations by uploading pictures through the newly added “Photos Layer” feature.
Google Earth 126.96.36.199 APK
The latest update for Google Earth changes the app’s version number to 188.8.131.52 and its available in form of APK. Considering that APK is an acronym for “Android Package Kit”, this update is currently exclusive to Android users, but it will be rolled out OTA (over the air) to everyone in the upcoming future.
Nonetheless, the reason why Google rolled out this new update is because it wanted to introduce Photos Layers. This new feature makes it possible for people all around the world to upload pictures of their surroundings and share them with everyone.
Therefore, Google Earth users will be able to explore new locations and see photos of the locals or famous spots around that place. In fact, this is how Google Earth’s developers describe this latest feature in the patch notes: “See the world through another’s eyes with the new Photos Layer”.
User Contributed Pictures
What’s interesting about this feature is that it relies on users to work. Therefore, every picture that is uploaded on Photos Players has been taken by normal users who simply want to share the beauty of their hometown with the world. With that being said, we can be sure that Google Earth is going to be filled with cool photos in no time.
