Google is celebrating 15 years of Google Street View with great news for the service. The truth is that it is one of the most used to explore any part of the world, before going there physically or just as a form of curiosity.
And in Portugal, which are the most explored places?
Google is marking this week the 15th anniversary of the launch of Google Street View, one of Google's most popular tools worldwide. In this context, the company unveiled a new portable camera to collect images for Street View that will travel around the world and a new feature that allows you to travel back in time to places in street view.
By the end of the year, the new immersive visualization announced at Google I/O will also appear, which will take Google Maps and Street View to another level of immersion.
