Just when you think you’ve seen it all, Google Street View is set to give you another level of detail when you go roam the world… in virtual mode, of course!
The ability to pick a point on a map and being able to see a realistic snapshot of the roads, whether in a city or in a rural area is great.
Later on, Google is set to bring more depth into this with a new feature called ‘Immersive View’.
In a way this is 2 existing technologies combined into one as Google Maps already has 3D rendering of a lot of points of interests around the world harnessing the data provided by orbiting satellites.
Introducing an immersive view — a whole new way to explore on Google Maps. 🌎— Google Maps (@googlemaps) May 11, 2022
You’ll be able to experience what a place looks and feels like before you arrive, powered by advances in AI that allow us to fuse together billions of Street View and aerial images. #GoogleIO pic.twitter.com/UCj7cInz2R
People seem to be excited about this new experience which will arguably continue to shift Google Maps into an experience rather than a tool which gives a set of directions.
What do you make of this?
Are you looking forward to such improvements?
