Google Maps is bringing a historical Street View feature to its mobile app, meaning you can now see older street-level photography captures from as far back as 2007.

iOS 13 has brought detailed street view imagery to Apple Maps thanks to the company's LiDAR-outfitted vehicles that have been roaming the streets of major cities in the US and around the world for years now, dutifully capturing high resolution street-level imagery.
Google's finally updated the Street View iOS app with support for native resolution on the handset's edge-to-edge Super Retina display. With today's update, the app no longer shows the horizontal black bars that appear when running unoptimized apps on an iPhone X.
Google on Tuesday announced that the popular street-level photography feature available on its Maps service now covers eleven Disney-operated theme parks in the United States.
2017 marked the tenth anniversary of Street View, a technology featured in Google Maps and Google Earth that provides panoramic views from positions along many streets in the world.
Google's native mapping application for the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad was bumped to version 4.19 this morning, bringing out a few enhancements meant to improve your navigation and Street View experience.
For starters, a few new voice controls are now available in navigation to mute, unmute or turn on alerts only. You can also move around Street View by swiping, and more.
A month ago, Google promised to release a standalone Street View mobile app “early next month.” Today, the Internet giant has made good on that promise as the all-new Google Street View app just hit the App Store (actually, it soft-launched in August 2014, but today's update feels like a whole new app and anyone can use it now).
Available for the iPhone and iPod touch, it lets you browse and enjoy Google's awesome street-level photography.
With this software, you can move and pan around by dragging your finger on the screen and even upload your own 360-degree photography to Google Maps to share your photo spheres with the world.
