There are thousands of apps that people can use to have fun, but all of them pale in comparison with Google Earth. Truth be told, Google Earth is not about entertainment but about exploring the world! This app has an interesting story since it was initially developed specially for the CIA, but Google decided that it was better to release it to the wide public and this was a great decision because the app allows everyone to basically fly all around the world just like a superhero would.
Exploring the World
If you always dreamed of visiting new locations around the world but never had the time or money to do it, you can always download the app and fly through all the popular landmarks such as Tokyo, Rome or even New York for example.
All landmarks are represented in 3D and this goes hand in hand with the Street View mode which allows people to travel around places that they never visited before. Nonetheless, the Android parent is looking to take Google Earth to the next level by adding a new feature called Photos Layer.
Google Earth 220.127.116.11
The latest update for Google Earth changes the app’s version number to 18.104.22.168 and it introduces a new and exciting feature. The feature is called Photos Layer and its going to enhance the way people can explore the world through Google Earth.
The new feature is going to be available for everyone in the menu panel and it gives people the ability to upload pictures of their local landmarks and sightseeing spots. Considering that Google Earth is now going to feature user-contributed photos, people will be able to explore new locations just like the locals would do.
Nonetheless, the update is available in form of APK right now but its going to be rolled out OTA (over the air) in the nearby future. With that said, Google Earth fans should be on the lookout for any new notifications because the update should arrive anytime now.
