THE WHOLE WORLD IN YOUR HANDS

Tech giant reveals stunning update that allows users to soar past towering skyscrapers and mountains in stunning accuracy

GOOGLE has launched an update to Earth that allows users to see the world’s greatest wonders in all their glory.


Tech wizardry means that armchair travelers can see towering skyscrapers, tourist hotspots and treacherous mountains all in stunning 3D.

And your view is fully changeable, with every picture able to turn on a 360-degree axis.

The planet’s major cities and landmarks are all covered, meaning you can swoop through the streets, dodging, trees, cars, cranes and buildings that are all rendered with astonishing accuracy.

But one such landmark that isn’t covered is the White House, leading to speculation that security fears may have held back the project.

But top sights like the Shard in London, Mount Everest, the Colosseum and the Eiffel Tower can all be appreciated in outstanding detail.
