Explore world landmarks, discover natural wonders and step inside locations such as museums, arenas, restaurants and small businesses with Google Street View.
Also create photo spheres to add your own Street View experiences. Start with your phone’s camera or add a one-shot spherical camera (like the Ricoh Theta V or S) for easy 360º photography. Then, you can publish to Google Maps to share your photo spheres with the world.
• Browse – or be notified of – Google’s newest special collections
• Explore all of Street View (including contributions from others)
• Review your public profile of published photo spheres
• Manage your private photo spheres
Creating and sharing photo spheres:
• Use your phone’s camera (no camera accessories required)
• Connect to a spherical camera to capture in one tap
• Share to Google Maps as immersive photo spheres
• Share privately as flat photos
Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

Ratings and Reviews
Why does this app exist? Google Maps with Street View integration worked perfectly well. This app is a solution to a problem that was never even there but it creates additional problems in the process.
I occasionally use street view and satellite view to figure out how to get to places. Now that street view is missing from maps I have to use two apps to achieve this instead, or simply use Google Maps through a web browser. Which is exactly what I’ll be doing now.
As mentioned a good chunk of the screen is taken up with information you’re probably not bothered about anyway. Frustrating.
How can this be so bad?
Virtually unusable. A good third of the screen is usually taken up by card-things you neither requested nor want. When scrolling around it sometimes jumps wildly everywhere apart from where you want it. It’s actually better using third-party online Google Streetview tools which is pretty shameful whichever way you look at it! Why did they ever remove it from Google Maps? Talk about fixing something that wasn't broken! And to all those praising the app for its 3D picture taking - that’s all very nice but couldn’t that have been a different app? I don’t give a monkeys about taking 3D pictures, I just need a well-designed app that shows me relatively recent pictures of the streets - I would prefer to have paid for a good one of those than be complaining about a rubbish free one.
Why are they trying to make Street View “a thing”? Why are they trying to turn the man you once dropped into the street (you know, back when Street View worked) a cartoon character? Congratulations google, you’ve broken what was once a slick and functional integrated feature.
The app is a disaster. Information overload; nebulous images take up half the screen, and the graphics are glitchy and are now cartoony. When you scroll over the map, the man jumps randomly from street-to-street bringing up a new street level preview each time; it’s totally distracting and utterly redundant.
I can’t believe people were paid to produce this; this app that should never have existed.
