Google Map News: Google Street View will now be available in many places in India. Launched in India last year, the feature was initially limited to a few cities, but now users can view 360-degree views of even smaller towns and villages in India.
It was banned for six years due to security reasons. Although the feature returned to Google Maps last year after a long ban, while most places in India have 360-degree viewing options, some places are still accessible through static images.
This feature is present in both the mobile and web versions of Google Maps, but the web version has some additional features, such as showing the month and year when the photo was taken. The web version has an ‘Explore’ option, which shows 360-degree images of nearby places.

What is Immersive View
Generative AI is coming to Google Maps to make navigation a whole lot easier. As a result, Immersive View, which was launched recently, is getting a 3D view while navigating. A step further than offering an in-depth view of a location and what’s happening at that location, the new immersive view will offer a bird’s-eye view of the entire route to your destination. That is, in 3D.
In other words, you see what you’re likely to see while taking the suggested route, albeit in bird’s eye view. Google said that it will also provide traffic simulations, so that you can understand how to plan your journey to a particular destination.
