This is the reason why they have launched this new Google maps feature, revolutionizing the smart direction / GPS apps. This new feature of Google maps street view definitely adds an additional star to the list of features in the Google navigation app.

  • It now lets users access their bookings and reservations in-app
  • It allows users to find food nearby within seconds
  • Using it, users can now track their visited locations in the past.

Street View Layer – The New Google Maps Feature

Using this Google maps street view, you can rapidly move between street view and normal maps view on the web version of the application, something that wasn’t actually possible on the mobile application.

An independent Street View application is also there, however, it’s a lot more advantageous to have everything in a single application. As shown in the above screenshot, the new Google maps street view layer is visible clearly in the app, and it’s very easy to switch between the default and street view version of the map. 

Just tap on the layer, and the map that is in view will promptly highlight in blue every one of the streets and areas where Google’s cameras have been utilized to take 360-degree snaps. 

It’s much the same as the desktop experience, you’ll just have to tap on the location that you need to inspect instead of dragging anything on the screen. The feature has begun rolling on Android, and it’ll most likely to come in iOS soon in the future.

With such wonderful features rolling out in the Google Maps app, its already huge user base is surely going to increase more. And with all that Google is doing with its application for maps, it will continually be a dominating name in the direction space.
