Google Earth continues to evolve and change itself. Now the popular software comes with a merged version that combines both Google Earth Free and Google Earth Pro
Google Earth Pro became free in 2015
The Pro version of the software became available for free back in 2015. This was great news for all Google Earth users, since it meant that they didn’t have to spend $399 a year anymore. The advanced tools became available for free, although Google did remove some features before removing payment.
The latest version of Google Earth came with a brand new Voyager tool. This feature allowed users to view tours guided by various experts. This version appeared back in April, and it was available for Chrome, but many considered it more of a toy than a serious software, and Google Earth was perceived as oversimplified.
Features of the Pro version of Google Earth
The Google Earth Pro version was popular because it allowed the user to try various actions. It lets you produce videos with Movie Maker, and it can show you historical imagery of the past, you are able to work with GIS data and export it and there are many advanced measurement tools.
Google Earth Free Version and Google Earth Pro combination
The latest update from Google Earth is the decision to merge Google Earth Pro and Google Earth Free and combine their features. This will bring several major improvements to the software, including better security, better performance, a better internal web browser and high-resolution display. Now there are plenty of tools, and the ones that existed before have been improved. A brand new Repair Tool will help you fix things when they are not right.
