Google has launched a new and revamped version of the Google Earth service. With the new update, the application wants to provide a medium for exploring the adventurous phenomenon of the blue planet.

The new Google Earth is now a web-based service, i.e you no longer need to download a separate application on your computer. However, you need to get the application if you also want to explore other heavenly bodies, like Mars and Moon, apart from the Earth. You also need to download the app if you want to experience the new Google Earth on your Android phone – courtesy the high-quality graphics (nothing for iOS users as of now).

Google has added many new features to the service. One of the highlighting new features is the Voyager section where Google has partnered with various groups like NASA, BBC and other wildlife conservation groups to provide a 360-degree live experience of that place. For instance, you can visit various preserved forest ranges that have been documented by BBC earth, through live 360-degree videos.

There’s a new "I'm Feeling Lucky" feature takes you to a random location around the globe. Google Earth is also highlighting around 20,000 lesser-known destinations – the kinds of places locals might frequent or know about.

Google also announced an update to a virtual-reality version of Google Earth. It now works with Facebook's Oculus Rift and the HTC Vive. However, it won't work with cheaper, phone-based VR systems, such as Google's Daydream and Samsung's Gear VR.
