Google Earth has come a long way from being a boring way to finish some school projects. The project enjoyed a very successful re-release that brought a revamped, refreshed and refurbished version of it to the general public. Now Google Earth is both entertaining and educational, and many more people of all ages have become interested in using it for various purposes. All in all, Google Earth has come a long way since being that default program you could find on the computers in your school library.
In order to keep the new and refreshed Google Earth relevant and always up to date, the Mountain View tech giant is already thinking of new features it could add to it. And a brand new idea that seems particularly exciting is a share your own photos feature within the Voyager mode of Google Earth.
How Will It Work?
Don’t be alarmed, Google Earth isn’t turning into a pseudo-Facebook where you share only travel photos. Instead, the company is bringing a very useful feature from Google Maps into the bigger, bolder Google Earth. On Google Maps, users have the option to share pictures of various places in order to help other users get a feel of the place, get indications and so on.
Well, that would be a great fit for Google Earth’s Voyager feature as well, which currently shows you photos from all around the world. Wouldn’t it be great for the program to show photos taken by users just like you alongside the professional Google photos it now displays? Each person is different and they view the world through a different lens, so it will be interesting to see how other people perceive various points of interest that our beautiful planet has to offer.
