Google has updated the Google Earth app for both Android and iOS users, who can now have a detailed 3D street view on their smartphone or tablet from anywhere around the world, with version 7.1. The Google Earth v7.1 app has been updated for over 100 countries across the globe.

Users can click on the Earth logo in top left to get quick access to information from Wikipedia as well as pictures with Panoramio Photo. You can also get step-by-step directions in full 3D in case you want to visit any of the places. You can download the latest version of Google Earth for Android on the Google Play store and iOS users can download the app from iTunes App Store.

Haris Ramic, Google Earth product manager, elaborated on the new version in a blog post:

“Have you ever wanted to take a tour of Stonehenge or retrace the steps of Christopher Columbus? With the addition of Street View to Google Earth for mobile devices, you can explore many sites from street level right on your mobile device. Just in case you decide to visit these places yourself, Google Earth’s improved directions enable you to visualize step-by-step transit, walking and biking directions in full 3D.”

Earlier this year, Google added Leap Motion's gesture technology for Google Earth's v7.1. This allowed users to explore the map interface by using hand gestures. Most of the enhancements are available on Google Earth Pro, including 'Map-Making,' where you can print and save your customized map; and 'Viewshed,' to measure distances and visualize remote sites from your home.
