Google Earth was another one of the many apps updated for Android Jelly Bean, and includes a new Tour Guide mode to help you find the important sights in a new city. Collections of thousands of notable points of interest will pop up in Tour Guide, and with a quick tap, Maps will fly over to it and provide information from Wikipedia on the spot. The updated Google Earth for Android will also include improved 3D imagery created using 45-degree satellite photography. You can take a look at the new automatically-generated models in the video below.
You can download Google Earth in the Play store here if you don't have it already. The iOS version will be updated shortly, if you're into that kind of thing.
Anyone excited for the update? Do you tend to use Google Earth that often even with Maps around?
