After spotting Google Street view on a UK Google map earlier today, I wondered how long the feature had been made available. However, after the awesome Google Operating System blog posted news of the update today – clearly it’s a very recent feature.
The restaurant just a few doors down from mine changed their name about 6 months ago, and the street view to my address at least shows the new restaurant name – therefore the Google van must have been by quite recently.
It’s unclear exactly which locations are available via Google Street View but Amsterdam, London, Liverppol, Birmingham, Glasgow, Belfast, Amsterdam and Rotterdam are all confirmed.
In case you’re unaware, to access street view, drag the small yellow man icon (on the slider to the left) onto any bright yellow highlighted street on your Google map.
