The immersive 3D view of Google Map will allow you to see an overview of 100 popular landmarks in aerial observation.

According to a report from Engadget on Wednesday, July 27, Google Maps has rolled out a feature that allows a user to view famous tourist spots around the world in 3D view.

You can virtually visit 100 world monuments through the app. As such, you can visit New York’s Empire State Building, London’s Big Ben, and more.

Additionally, this Google Maps feature uses artificial intelligence to present 3D views of a location. Images captured include Street View and satellite photos.

The search engine giant said it was a preview tool for people looking to tour around the world. This is a very handy feature that tourists should use whenever they set foot in a foreign land anywhere on Earth.

At the time of writing, Engadget reported that users can now access aerial views. It’s easy to use, and you need to open your Google Maps app, find your favorite landmark, and then open your Photos folder on your device.

Google updates bike navigation

Along with a preview of a 3D aerial view of landmarks, Google has introduced a new update for the bike navigation feature. This time the company has added more information in “lightweight” mode, including road types, routing data and traffic details to name a few.

For bikers, this is a nice improvement since you can now quickly determine routes and the time you will spend to get there. In the next few weeks, this update would be available to hundreds of cities around the world.

Additionally, Google has also brought the ability to share alerts for a user’s location. It helps the person to know that their friend has arrived at a particular place on the map.

For gig people who are struggling to find their friends, this would pave the way for easy tracking of your companion who is still not on the scene.

Of course, this feature will only be activated once each of you shares your two locations.

In other news, TechCrunch reported that Street View functionality has been relaunched in Google Maps India. It took more than 10 years before the feature film arrived in the country. At the time, it had already been released in South Asia.

This feature allows you to browse the map at street level. You can enjoy discovering a village or a road in a 360 degree panoramic perspective.
