Updated Google Earth Unveils New User Interface and Street View

Google Earth received a solid update which bumped it up to version 7.1.1. This update allows users to drop all of the way down into Street View, use improved directions (better visuals) and search (quicker), and navigate the app more easily thanks to a slide out navigation menu from the left side.

While most of you may not find a use for Google Earth on a day to day basis, this update has made the overall experience enjoyable and worth taking a look at. Interested users can grab the updated version here at the Play Link.
