To celebrate Earth Day Google releases a new Google Earth

Perhaps one of the coolest new features is Google Earth Voyager.

"This is the first time we have done this deep integration with the Google Knowledge Graph", Earth engineering manager Sean Askay said.

Google Earth released a huge update today which allows you to see the world in a whole new perspective.

"It's everything you love about Google Earth, plus new ways for you to explore, learn and share".

One area of particular interest to Kiwis was featured in the ad Google put out announcing the relaunch - Mount Eden in Auckland.

I'm Feeling Lucky: A classic I'm feeling lucky button has been added to the app, which now takes the users to random locations across the world.

Also added to Google Earth is an I'm Feeling Lucky button, that will help users explore and find new and unseen places around the globe.

Google Earth has been on autopilot for the last few years as Google busied itself with other things.

Called Your Timeline, the new section contains a history of all of the places users have visited that can be viewed by date, mode of transport or type of activity.

Right on schedule, Google today announced it revamped version of Google Earth. You'll even be treated to clips from Planet Earth II. First it will tell you to search for a location you want to check out. Users can see 3D maps of specific locations, learn about random places from around the world, and take guided tours from their mobile devices or Chrome browser.

The better and bigger Google Earth update has overhauled the entire outlook of the software.

The update has been made available for the Chrome web browser and Android versions of the app, and also includes improved and more detailed satellite imagery. Jane Goodall Institute for Interactive guided tours was also tapped for the existing Voyager feature. The only downside that it comes with is since Google apps are 32 bit they will soon become obsolete for IOS.

The redesign also makes Google Earth, which has already seen more than 2 billion downloads in its lifetime, more accessible than ever.
