Google Maps brings a new “time travel” feature to your phone with a dedicated list of the top ten areas

GOOGLE is planning to introduce a new “time travel” feature for its Street View application.

On the occasion of its 15th birthday, Google’s Street View enables its users to travel back in time via a new tool.

Specifically, this tool allows users to see how landscapes have changed over the years – right from their phones.

To make the feature even more fun, Google has compiled a list of popular places for users to explore.

The top three areas on the list are the White House at Christmas, followed by the Taj Mahal and Thailand’s floating market.

Users can also take a ride in space, virtually visit Japan’s famous cherry blossom, or visit Yosemite National Park.

Rounding out the list are world-famous attractions such as the Great Barrier Reef, the Eiffel Tower, the Venice Canals and the Colorado River (in one boat!)

What is Street View?

Google Street View is a revolutionary technology used in Google Maps and Google Earth that allows users to interact with many streets around the world.

In fact, Street View cars have clocked up more than 10 million miles in more than 100 countries and territories over the past 15 years.

During their travels, the vehicle fleet has collected more than 220 billion images that allow us to use Street View.

This new update comes just a few weeks after the release of a similar “time-lapse” tool for Google Earth.

The clever time-lapse feature lets users see how neighborhoods have changed over the past 37 years.

Googler sourced more than 24 million satellite photos taken over four decades for the tool.

According to a Google blog post, this function should show “not only problems, but also solutions”.
