Draw Your Own 360-Degree View of Earth with New Google App
NEW YORK: Google has launched a new Street View app that will not only let you navigate through the Earth with a 360-degree view but allow you to shoot your own 360-degree photos and upload directly on the app.
Once you download the app, there's a "Collections" tab that lets you see a grouping of similar imagery, such as art installations or zoos.
The "Explore" tab lets you see all the Street View imagery that exists, dotted on a map of Earth, Wall Street Journal reported in a blog.
"Profile" lets you see what the photo spheres you and others have shared to Google Maps.
A "Private" tab lets you see what images you have shot but have not shared publicly.
An orange button in the lower right corner takes you into a photo-sphere camera from anywhere in the app.
An orange dot directs you where to point your phone.
The Street View app also lets users create their own "photo spheres" that can be submitted to Google.
The app will be available on both Android and iOS mobile platforms.
