Google Earth is one of the most incredible apps made and there is no doubt about that. A fun fact about Google Earth that many people don’t know is that this app was initially being developed to be used by USA agencies such as the CIA in order to track down their targets. Luckily, Google realized that the potential for Google Earth is much bigger and it decided to go public.
The cool thing about Google Earth is that it lets people explore the world from the comfort of their own homes. To top it all off, Google Earth features special VR modes that can be used in order to feel like you are flying all over the world, just like a superhero. Nonetheless, the reason why this app is making headlines today is because it has just been updated.
