In case you haven’t heard, Google is upgrading its Street Views this Wednesday so that you can now go back in time to see how roads and streets have changed in recent years. The video above demonstrates how Google will be showing progress in specific locations.
Mashable, the tech site, was one of the first to report that “Google has collected images from its past street view collections – going back as far as 2007 – to create interactive timelines.”
You can now see how buildings and monuments were constructed for the last few years. Or how a street or looked before and after a disaster.
The new feature is only available on the desktop version of Google Maps.
If you want to access past street images, look for the hourglass and a slider on the top left of the screen. It let’s you see the month and year.
The Internet just keeps getting better and better.
Now if I just had some time to sit around and google a few places.
