Google recently launched a new version of Google Earth on the web in Chrome, and on Android. Fly through landmarks and cities like London, Tokyo and Rome in stunning 3D, then dive in to experience them firsthand with Street View. Google has teamed up with some of the world’s leading storytellers, scientists and non-profits to bring the planet to life with Voyager, a showcase of interactive guided tours. E.g. with Natural Treasures from BBC Earth, journey to six habitats—from islands to mountains to jungles—and learn about the unique and thrilling wildlife in each. Uncover hidden gems the world over with “I’m feeling lucky,” a new feature that takes you somewhere unexpected. Once you’ve landed on a point of interest, open a Knowledge Card to learn history and facts about that place and see more pictures of it.

Click the new 3D button to see any place from any angle and share a Postcard of your exact view with your friends and family. It’s an incredible way to virtually travel the world.
