Google revamps Google Earth for Web and Android

Google Earth has gotten a fresh new coat of paint, and with a bunch of new features onboard, too.

Google Earth has been around for a long time, and a revamp like this has been long overdue. But, the search giant has been hard at work on the revamp for two years now, and now, we have something truly spectacular.

“With the new Earth, we want to open up different lenses for you to see the world and learn a bit about how it all fits together; to open your mind with new stories while giving you a new perspective on the locations and experiences you cherish. It’s everything you love about Google Earth, plus new ways for you to explore, learn and share. Zoom in and see what adventures await you in the new Google Earth.”

One neat new feature is Voyager. It’s essentially a showcase of interactive guided tours. For example, you have the Natural Treasures guided tour from BBC Earth, allowing you to take a tour of up to six different habitats.

There’s also a new “I’m Feeling Lucky” feature” that will take you somewhere random around the world with a simple click of a button.

You can also expect to see a new 3D Button, allowing you to see places or locations from almost any angle. You can get a fantastic life-like glimpse at the Château de Chambord with this feature. You could use the button to view other iconic areas as well, such as the Big Ben or Statute of Liberty.
