Google Street View news
The platform also announced the opportunity to view historical images of a place, starting from 2007 or the first digitisation. It is in effect a real time capsule that will allow you to discover the changes that have taken place.
In addition, an immersive view will be released which allows you to go down to street level and even enter a commercial activity, as if you were walking. That option will be launched later this year.
