Google Earth has always been cool. Through the interactive mapping platform we’ve been able to travel all over the world with just a click of a button. But now with the VR revolution it’s just hit atmospheric heights of cool.
Up until now Google Earth has been pretty straightforward. You start off with a view of the globe and by clicking on different points of the earth and zooming in you can get all the way down to an eye level view of some of the most exotic locations. With over 2 billion downloads (per Google) it’s proved to be popular.
This works on your desktop, through the web and through the mobile app. But now the HTC Vive app known as Google Earth VR allows you to finally feel like you’re actually there (I mean, obviously, otherwise it wouldn’t be called “VR”).
