Google Street View Review

Google Street View reviewerJovana

About

Google is proving its greatness, moving limits of technology and changing an ordinary life. Not so long ago, we thought it is impossible to have someone’s guide (except for notorious paper maps), while you are driving. We were wrong, Google Maps and Navigation took care to change the way we are thinking. Google Maps was followed by Google Street view.

Explore world greatest cities, feel untouched nature and visit famous places. Everything is possible from your room, a click away. 

They covered almost the whole world. They are not stopping until they cover everything. That’s not all, refreshing and recording again the streets they’ve been, is their main purpose.

How to

You can try and look up for your house where you grew up. When I found mine, emotions took over and this app definitely bought me. Follow and tap the white arrow and go down the street. Maybe, you will want to go farther but it isn’t possible due to that place hasn’t been covered yet. Don’t forget to look around you. The great advantage of 360-photo. 

Feel like you are walking again through streets of the city you visited as a kid. Use your imagination and “visit” the world’s farthest points.

What’s new? Diving with Google without even stepping into the water! Dive into a beautiful underwater world. Touch those magnificent coral reefs and see Nemo.  Everyone has that opportunity. 

If you are done with using the app, make sure to turn off GPS and Location, because it will decrease battery life. If you have limited data plan make sure to use Google street view wisely because its download is very big.

Look around! 

If you are planning to go on a vacation, search around that place. If you don’t like it, book another. Take your chances and go there without seeing it on Google Street view, it’s the best for experiencing a new place. 

Need a place to take a lease? Search on the Internet for the perfect neighborhood. Though, don’t have time to convince yourself if the neighborhood is appropriate for you. Then, you should come up with the idea to visit Google Street view and make sure it looks nice.

Google in Japan offers Street view from the dog’s perspective, how cool is that? But it isn’t the only “animal point of view”, in some places, there is a bird's-eye view. It depends on how they could record. The best pictures are from human's sight perspective. That way you can see and feel like you are there for real.

Stepping into objects 

Presenting the interior of museum, galleries or churches isn’t the best move. No picture or words can describe the feeling of being in such a place. It cannot be replaced with taking a gander on a moving picture. But on the other hand, If you live across the globe and you know it isn’t possible to visit The Science World in Vancouver, then take a virtual tour with Google Street view.

Maps and Street view

I find it very difficult that Google Maps and Google Street view are now separated. Personally, I was very keen on the old version with both apps. I noticed that many apps have only one or two functions, but they used to have more. It is probably because if you have two different apps, there will be fewer bugs than in one multifunctional app.

Privacy

While Google car is recording, there are people on the street, and their faces are blurred. The names and numbers on mailboxes can’t be seen. Don’t worry if Google car goes through your street. Your privacy will not be hurt, but you better go and clean in front of your house. 😃 

Contribute

Be part of this app. Take the 360-degree image or just usual picture. Upload it to Google street view and make something finely for others. When you go on holiday to an exotic island, aside from your friends show pictures of nature to Google. Assemble them together and pin on the right location, and wait for Google to endorse it. 

TIP: Use your phone camera or appropriate 360-camera. Keep it close to your face and take pictures. It’s better to rotate in a circle while taking pictures for the complete image.

Conclusion

Google Street view is creating a new reality. Perfect app to refresh memories of the place visited a long time ago. Would it be better if they make 3D version app? Go through the most famous streets with 3D glasses or a virtual reality headset. Sounds cool?
