If it’s been a long time since you used Google Earth on your smartphone, then you might want to consider giving the app another try. The reason why we are saying that is because the Android parent has been continuously updating the app with improvements and now, a brand-new update that introduces major changes is available to download.
The new update is rolling out via OTA (over the air) channels which means that all Google Earth fans who will connect their smartphones to Wi-Fi will receive the update as soon as possible. With that said, let’s go ahead and check out what are the changes that this update makes.
New Google Earth Update
Even though most updates that Google Earth receives introduce high-quality imagery of the planet’s surface, this is not the case for the latest one. The new update takes a look towards the stars and it makes it possible for users to zoom up to 30,000 miles above the planet. This feature allows users to observe all the stars that surround our planet as they captured by the European Southern Observatory. You can also see the Milky Way!
We also want to mention that while this feature might seem innovative, Google Earth fans who used the app on PC were already able to access it on the Pro version since last year. Fortunately, the Android parent has decided to release this feature for free to the mobile version of the app.
The APK Alternative
While the new update might be rolling out via OTA channels, this doesn’t mean that all Google Earth fans will receive the update at the same time. Eager Google Earth fans can rush the process by manually downloading and installing the update on their smartphones.
