Back in August, Canadians were spotting the Google Street View car all over Canada. This was, of course, Google getting ready to release Street View in Canada. Well folks, it’s live!

Just last week, Live Traffic was enabled in Google Maps and now Google Street View is live in Canada! Pegman is lit-up and ready to show you street-level goodies and details.

Google Street View is an amazing feature of Google Maps that allows you to zoom into an intersection and move around in it from the Maps interface. The images you see on Google Street View are not live but they are real life images taken to provide a tour of city streets.

The feature is now available in numerous countries around the world in North America, Europe, and the Asia-Pacific region and now Canada as well.

How to Use Google Street View

To use Google Street View (internet connection required):

1.) Enter Google Maps on your device

2.) Drop a pin on an intersection in Canada (or any other street) or search for an address/location

3.) The ‘little-guy-with-a-head’ icon (AKA: Pegman) lights up

4.) Tap Pegman to begin Street View

5.) Use the navigation arrows and your finger gestures to move around. Tap the Map radar in the bottom right to go back

List of available Street View cities

Here in Vancouver, almost every street seems to be covered. But does Google Street View work in your City/Province?

Drop your location in the comments and let us know if Street View is active where you live!

(Thank you to Bud Colby for the city list)
