Google Maps Offers New Time Capsule Street View Feature
By using the Google Maps Street View feature, users are able to see people, vehicles, structures, landscapes, and many other items all around the world at an eye level view. Google has now introduced a new feature to Street View which allows users to see certain historical imagery spanning various years. Vinay Shet, the product manager for Street View, notes that the feature is like a digital time capsule of the world since it gives historic imagery dating back to 2007. Additionally, the feature provides the ability for users to explore various regions of the world in different seasons.
Users who wish to make use of the new Street View time capsule can only do so through the desktop version of Google Maps.
