I don’t know about you, but I’ve always wondered why Street View hasn’t been incorporated well in the Google Maps mobile app. It’s a useful feature. Historically, we’ve had to download a separate Street View app that worked in conjunction with Maps. Google has since unified them.
Now its taken a step forward with regard to accessibility, making sure we’re aware the feature is there. Via the Maps Google+ page, Google has let us know that the Street View functionality now pops up on our location searches.
[blockquote author=”Google Maps team”]Take a look at your destination before you start navigating. Just tap the Street View thumbnail in #GoogleMaps for Android.[/blockquote]
When you pinpoint a location, a Street View preview thumbnail shows up towards the bottom left corner. You can’t miss it. Touch it to view the street and take a digital stroll.
Just make sure that you’re on the latest version of Maps.
