Google has made its Google Earth Pro service free. The service was earlier available for $399 per year.
Google Earth Pro comes with all easy to use features and detailed imagery of Google Earth. It also includes advanced tools for professionals allowing you to measure 3D buildings, print high res images, and record HD movies of virtual flights.
“Starting today, even more people will be able to access Google Earth Pro: we're making it available for free. To see what Earth Pro can do for you—or to just have fun flying around the world—grab a free key and download Earth Pro today. If you're an existing user, your key will continue to work with no changes required,” says Google in a blog post.
In another set of development, Google updated its Google Now service with integration of 40 third party apps including popular Indian apps such as Meru Cabs and ESPNCricinfo.
