How to Launch Street View on Google Maps

To launch Street View: Simply open Google Maps, zoom in on a street in any of these target cities, and tap the area you want to see. Learn about local cafes, and cultural hotspots, or check out local neighborhoods. 


Street View will help you navigate and explore new corners of the country and the world in a more visual and precise way, allowing you to fully experience from your phone or computer what it's like to be in these places.

Google is also making the Street View API available for local developers to provide a better mapping experience within their apps and services.
