We’re surprised it took Google this long to add Street View to Google Earth, considering Google Maps has had it since day one. Nevertheless, this looks like a decent update.
The company today also announced Google Maps and Earth will now have cloud-free satellite views, resulting in a new beautiful 800,000 megapixel image of the world when viewed in global view.
