Latest version of Google Maps for Android gives you quick access to Street View

Latest version of Google Maps for Android gives you quick access to Street View
Google's Street View allows you to see panoramic views of streets from your mobile device, allowing you to "take a walk" along a street so that you can check out a neighborhood. The latest version of Google Maps for Android, which happens to be version 9.13.0, includes a link to a Street View for your destination. All you need to do is click on the thumbnail at the lower left of the screen to get there. The thumbnail will appear when you search for an address inside the app, or with a long press to the map.

If you already have Google Maps for Android installed on your device, you can update the app by going to the Google Play Store and clicking on My apps. There are some other changes with the update, including one that allows you to add a missing business to the map from the sidebar. And of course, there are the usual bug fixes that are taken care of with this update.

The fast access to Street View will certainly come in handy when traveling to a neighborhood that you're not familiar with. While many of you have seen the Google Street View car in action, other images come from those taking pictures on foot, by boat and even by camel.
