Introducing Google Earth VR, the next step to help the world see the world.

With Earth VR, you can fly over a city, stand at the edge of a mountain, and even soar into space.

Google Earth VR is available now on Steam for the HTC Vive.

 

 

 

It's exciting to think about what people could do with an open version of the app, or a tool like the non-VR Google Earth Tour Builder.

You could embed your own stories into Google Earth, or link personal photo spheres to specific places.

Businesses could offer a VR version of their neighborhood the way they might embed a Google Maps widget on their website.

Even without this, it still feels like one of the biggest, most open-ended VR apps available right now.
