- Nice view of the world with a touch of a button

Really enjoy this app. Sometimes I just click on random places just to explore what certain places look like that I will probably never get to go. However I’ve noticed that sometimes an address doesn’t load and or it’s very slow and sits and buffers. I wish google would also update the maps. Before vacation, going to a new restaurant, going over to someones house for the first time, I like to look the place up to get an idea of routes. A lot are out of date. I guess it’s not this app’s purpose but I like using this to get a good idea of where I’m going. My address/ neighborhood for example is from 2007. I know it’s from then because my house and the neighborhood was built in 2007. It’s changed a lot since then and the picture is not clear. The aerial view is also different to the street view on some maps. Not the end of the world just wish it was updated. Since they have to drive to create the maps it probably takes awhile. I guess.

- Not Even Basic App Comforts (2020 iPad Pro)

It takes a lot of disappointment for me to write reviews but this app is just so flat. It’s like they took what they were in the process of developing years ago and just threw it up without even looking at it for a quick review. I am terrible at geography and thought this would help me with a class I’m taking but I was mistaken. You can’t adjust any type of visual settings so if you zoom too far in on, say, China, you get a million different location names in English and Chinese and you can’t even see the land under all the text. Also, it would be really enjoyable (and easier on my old lady eyes) to be able to make borders bold or different colors or even cut out a region to view it individually. It is absolutely impossible to tell one country/state from the next with the impossibly thin tan line separating everything that, oh yea, is the same color that is used for most of the landscape. What a mess. Overall really great concept but what I’m gathering from other reviews, the app particularly for iPad is super low quality compared to others. I now know that if I had a desktop I’d be able to look at the moon and mars so I feel really gypped now. And yes, even though I didn’t pay anything I still feel shortchanged.

- Nice need a few Stuff tho

You see I like google earth and all but they need to have 3D at big cities like Moscow or Shanghai. What’s wrong with them? New York City is a big place but is less populated then the ones I mention. Also why are you covering some spots in the North and South Pole. In Greenland you can barely see a thing. In Siberia (which is in Russia of course) you can see trees and stuff but some stuff are blurry! Why??? I’m not saying ur keeping a secret from us but that’s pretty suspicious. You really need to change that. But really you should! Also one more thing. Why do you want to know where we live? That’s really creepy! I mean really creepy!!! I don’t want no one to know where I live (except my relatives of course). But no one else unless there my friends. That’s just really creepy dude! You should really change that! And you should do that before hackers know where you live and start doing bad stuff to you. I love this app and all but you should change stuff. Anyways I hope you change everything bad and have a good day. Bye!

- Detail Update Please

Ive been a fan of google earth for a long time now. I recall that the first images used to allow the bottom of the ocean exploration with a smooth transition from land to sea. With the new updates and imagery, a lot of detail has been removed. I used to remember looking at land masses and seeing the trees and roads but the current images are now blurry blobs. Also the area surrounding and encompassing Antarctica is severely pathetic. We the people want the details and the Truth. Why is it that there are photoshop cuts and cloud clips, that are covering up detail of the landscape? Please fire the photoshop team and tell it like it is. What good is exploring the planet in virtual format if all you get is blurred images to hide those detail? I don’t use Google Earth much any more because it is a joke now. It makes me sad that all the big corporations want to keep people in the dark, never sharing what they find. Who are you to make that judgment on all of the population. What gives you the rite to hide valuable discoveries from us? And why? It just makes me sad that you were not raised with the truth and so you find ways to cover it up :(

- Sorry to say but.. a few kinks..

So I had and deleted one and a half year ago because I didn’t rlly think I would need it. So earlier yesterday ( today’s yesterday) I was getting bored and so I got this app again and I had to get the older version. So idk if that is related to this but.. every time I try to “ walk “ in the streets it lets me go little ways but then it stops working and takes me to my home screen :( Is it related to old version of google earth or maybe because I don’t have latest version of iPad? Could it be because my iPad is like five years old or is it just something that needs a bug fix update? Or can you not fix? I totally understand if you cannot fix though because I know you all work hard reading reviews and trying to fix any problems anyone has. Thx for all your hard work guys! Me appreciates it. Sincerely, INFO UNAVAILABLE

- Hey I just wanna say something about this app

Unfortunately people lately have been saying there’s many glitches and strange things found on this app (and I agree) but since then there hasn’t been a SINGLE glitch or bug or strange thing that I have ever seen on this app known as google earth or google maps (whatever) but I just don’t understand what the point of these bugs and glitches are. Many people have found these kinds of bugs but I just don’t get where they came from and why this app has a lot of bugs and glitches. I don’t Know maybe something really is wrong with this app. Well good thing those glitches are fixed because I would be terrified if I saw a glitch. Because usually bugs and glitches on this App are usually very disturbing and I agree with them. Otherwise this app is great and I hope u like it too :)

- Long time fan, needs technical improvement

This app is great and the measuring tool in particular makes it easy for me to plan new running routes. However lately it’s been challenging to use the app because of some recurring technical issues. Often the app crashes after less than five minutes of use and continues to crash every time I open the app. I’ve restarted my iPad and tried a few other troubleshooting things but the crashing still happens about 50% of the time. The street view feature is great! Despite the issues I would still recommend this app and continue to use it, but it would be really good if the issues would be fixed.

- Fix the time differences

I’ve always LOVED this app. Being able to explore places I’ve always wanted to go without having to get off the couch. But, I’ve noticed a problem and to be completely honest I can’t seem to find a reason why the people in charge can’t or won’t fix these problems. First problem is the blurred areas. Certain places I’ve looked at in the past were completely clear and I was always able to zoom in almost to the point of being able to read street signs. Now y’all have started blurring our a LOT of different details and to be honest it makes the app a lot less appealing and more useless than useful. Problem #2. The seasonal overlapping... now this happens on my GPS when I use it with satellite overlay. BUT, once I’ve zoomed in to a certain point it all clears up and the picture is as it should be according to the season. I’m a HUGE history fanatic so I’m constantly looking for ruins and remnants of the past in places most people can easily get to. But when I start noticing that the picture refuses to clear up and focus and the fine and important details are now blurred. It makes me ask why. Which also causes me to look for answers. Which has also given me no other choice but to contact certain people to hack into certain satellites so I can get the answers i need. 🙃

- Slow, very, very slow updates

“Okay. Guys we got the data in for the whole world! Now we can sit on our butts for years and years and never have to update it”...said the boss at google earth a decade ago. I know it is free, but I have State Farm road atlases with the picture of a 1953 Buick on the cover that has more up to date maps than Google earth! Those were also free! Their competition is buying new images like crazy and have current maps/terrain. Perhaps GE just isn’t in the game any more and are letting this program wither and die when more folks like me discover it is full of ancient artifacts instead of a current set of images. I’m in the hinterlands of the fly over in the USA...Denver Colorado. Doubt if the GE staff can spell it let alone find it on their own program. The images I deal with are from three to seven YEARS old. Streets, many buildings, power lines, pipelines, public facilities have been built and in place for years in the suburban areas of this city. There are much more current images in Tibet and South America, Do not use this app if you are expecting to get current images. It is poor for that. One feature that might be helpful is to have a streamlined method to report obsolete images, or offer the ability to purchase new images of specific areas if Google cannot afford to update your area of interest.


This is a great app and I'd recommend getting it. The problem is it's not all 3d and I would like you to fix that 'cause my grandfather lives in D.C. but I can't see his house and I want to really bad ( because he's rich and owns a mansion ). Other than that it's GREAT!! But you should add something where you can change the time of day ( night, midnight, early morning (2 am), morning, day, noon, afternoon, evening ) where it changes everything. For example, at day, an office building would look regular, but if you changed it to NIGHT, it would look dimmer and all the lights would be on. If you fixed/added the stuff in my review, it would be a great app. Thank you Google for making another awesome addition to my screen!

- Will not load/open

Using an iPad Pro google earth is stuck on the welcome screen and does not go any further. Clicked on the app support tab in the App Store and it takes you to a help forum for windows google earth Pro help. Useless for apple products. Really a shame googles so disorganized or just doesn’t care about low revenue users UPDATE: several hours later the app loaded as expected. Program ran fine, would be nice to have current or near current maps and photos, most data I saw was more than 3 yrs old. I’m thinking the startup/loading issue was not an app problem but a temporary google server issue they resolved. Still no troubleshooting info for Apple mobile users (at least none I could find) even with the issues, Google Earth is the best (free) global mapping app money can buy for the iPhone/iPad.

- Updates

I just want to say that I wish all the maps update there City New York has not updated london San Francisco losngls and more the building don’t change New York 3D buildings Are in 2018 this year it should be 2019 so as rest of the world 3D city and it’s not live and no upadates of the building years we have to wait and Washington DC has no 3 d buildings and I’m looking at the same 3D building in New York for a year or more and it should have live maps and the loading you get shots cause far away it dose not load so google earth please make New York City have new 3D building cause the time New York takes place in is 2018 so now the 3D buildings should be 2019 by now so google earth update the 3D city’s more ok

- Looks Awful

I think what this app is doing is really cool with the whole see different places thing which is why I’m giving this 2 stars instead of 1. It looks horrendous, unless you are using street view, everything looks terrible, it looks like someone threw up after eating Taco Bell. And most of the time things you want to view aren’t on the street so you can’t even use street view. In my neighborhood I wanted to look at my school because it was remodeled in 2012 and I started going there in 2013 so I never got to see what it looked like before. My neighborhood pictures were from 2011 so the school wasn’t remodeled yet. So I went and looked and because it’s a school, there was no street view for what I wanted to see. All you could see was the front of the school. So I tried zooming in and low and behold. It looked so terrible. Don’t get this app

- most used app on my phone 💗

yes, you heard that right. Google Earth is a great way to explore new places when you’re at home, especially during the pandemic. it’s a great way to explore places that you probably will never go to. my only suggestion is a night version, because I would really like to see different places at night, especially Milwaukee, Wisconsin. but I won’t take a star off of this app since you would have to drive around the whole world to give us a night version. however, it is something you should consider. You should also update the street map because it’s old and it’s from 2018 and I live in a growing neighborhood.

- I will be forever grateful

So today my mom is going to go to Jalapeño in my city so we can get a burrito because their burritos are good. So I looked up where Jalapeño is in my city and I memorized that spot. I am also in the mood for a smoothie and looked up Tropical Smoothie Cafe because their Bahama Mama is one of my favorite smoothies. I looked up both of them to see if they were even remotely near each other because if they were, I could get a smoothie. It turns out they’re right next to each other! Google Earth helped me figure out if I could get a smoothie and I am forever thankful for that. Now every time my mom goes out to Jalapeño I have a decent chance of her saying yes to getting tropical smoothie.

- Future is Here.

Not only 5-star app for iOS platform, but also for later viewing in Virtual Reality. Using the Insta360 camera, I can upload 360 photospheres to Google Earth/Streetview via the Google Streetview app. In the end, using the Google Earth App to view not just google content, but updated content by google users makes for an incredible end-user experience. This is also a 5-star review for the Google Earth program available in the Oculus App Store (free). Using a VR platform (e.g., Oculus Rift S), you can literally “walk” down a street with a 360 degree view as you go. Incredible technology. Future is here - check out the app in virtual reality if you have the opportunity.

- You can not travel without Google——-

especially if you are motoring somewhere and need a hotel, restaurant, or medical help. The Maps app is enormously helpful because in addition to the video depictions, the aural directions allow you to listen to the driving directions and watch the road. The Earth app is a fantastic aerial view of your route and/or destination, which then allows you to simply go to maps and enter the address. You can enter enroute information requests for hotels and gas stations or just about anything you want or need. It is very intuitive, is GPS synch’d, and will get you un-lost in a jiffy. You simply can not go anywhere without this app.

- Desperately needs an update with better features.

Decent, but is lacking major useful features such as; • Save Pinned Location, that you can custom label • User Guide! Explaining each and every function! -From the upper right hand symbols (domino, measurement, etc.). -What each icon over buildings mean (speaking of; there is an error when tapping the icon to get information. A ‘no internet connection’ pops up. Maybe it’s not an error but lack of info on that place?) -In addition to the icon explanation; add the colour of it. Ex: the fork & spoon being orange, dot being grey, shopping bag being blue, etc. I ask that you PLEASE keep these suggestions in mind. I’m not sure if updates still occur or if the app is still being monitored by the creators. I implore these features to be made at some point. I believe it’ll boost the ratings this app gets. That said! Do not rush to get the updates done and out immediately, otherwise a major bug/error may happen. Take time and update at your speed. One at a time or as a bundle. Pardon the wall of text and if I seemed commanding, it was not at all my intention! Just my own thoughts and opinion. Thank you for reading. Sincerely; Anastasia |aka| Haka

- Excellent app

This app is made for a geography lover. It is an absolutely fantastic app. This app allows for some very high resolution images of buildings photographed from space. It also has voyager and knowledge cards which help you learn so much. It also has a random location button which can take you anywhere in the world. Finally, the best part is the measure feature. This thing is amazing. I have learned so much about the scale and true size of things using this. Additionally, Google Earth shows the Earth in it’s true spherical shape. This lets you see truly how much bigger or smaller things are than what you thought. Would give it 6 stars if I could.

- Date of image

I love the app but I can’t get a clear image of stuff on my mining claims nor can I tell when it was put there. Just a little better resolution and a flyover date would be so helpful. At present, I can’t tell if it is a tent or a travel trailer or a van parked on my claim. I have three gold mining claims and this would be so helpful to be able to see if someone was hi jacking me and approximately when, as I live over three and a half hours away from the closest one. I thank you in advance for anything you can do to help me with this matter... The rock breaker

- Timetravel feature needed + ocean map

I really like google Earth, but I would love to see a time travel feature where you can see what has changed over the decades: buildings, roads, environment, etc. Also, I think the next step should definitely be mapping the oceans; you will have work for centuries, honestly. Lastly, I want to see higher resolution imaging. One thing that I currently like is the 3D feature especially when you first tap it and the camera does a cyclical camera pan; that's awesome! Although, I would like this to be available from multiple zoom levels. Also, how about quick-zoom level buttons: 1x, 2, 5x, 10x or altitude ranges. Google + Wikipedia would make a powerful resource for information ;)

- Google earth

I recommend all people getting it because it’s useful for everyone you can see any address with it I request without it doesn’t go to desert but with it comfortable find your way especially if you are familiar with coordinates of a point you can save points with x-y-z and always save in your phone like global positionally system or gps civil engineer can plan road or railroad install on this app and specify place of bridge and culvert and can use it daily of coarse it has many abilities that when use it then understand all I hope all consumers appreciate it and I wish success all producers this app

- Good on a desktop, bad on mobile

I love using google earth to explore the world from the comfort of home so I can get an idea of which countries I want to add to my bucket list of places to visit, and the desktop version is perfect for that. But the mobile version is not very touch accurate. If two places are close together, they tend to overlap on the screen. And you tap on one to see photos of it or read about it, it inevitably thinks you’re tapping on the other no matter how much you try to angle your finger toward the place you’re actually trying to see. Which is extremely frustrating. You need the precision of a mouse curser for any sort of enjoyable experience on this application because it optimized well for a mobile, touchscreen experience.

- Great App!

I believe this app is easily accessible for apple users as it is already on your device. I find this helpful because you do not have to take extra steps to download the app. The navigators voice corresponds with your siri voice which you can change. I overall like this app because it also is very easy to understand the audible directions. Also, it easily allows you to change routes and see the current traffic. I also like the appearance of the app! I would definitely recommend this app to a friend.

- Needs a little work

This app is great, but it needs the present picture of the houses. Whenever I search up my address it shows my house but shows the cars that we had a long time ago. I also feel like the weather should change more often. I went on the app and it was 7:30 and it was dark out, but when I looked on the app it should all clear skies, middle of the day, all the nice clouds, but it would also look great in the night! All the building lights on and just watching the earth in the night!

- Needs better offline visibility

Certain map/gps apps require a strong data signal to use them for travel. Being built into a smart phone makes sense in those cases. However, when downloading a third party app, I would hope for a more robust app that would allow usage, even in poor signal areas. You know, situations that require a map when cell signal is low or non existent? My family and I go for car rides every weekend and go out back roads into rural and desolate areas to see what we can see. Too often we have no or very limited cell signal and the native app can’t do anything for us. I reinstalled GE thinking it would pick up the slack but I just found out that without signal, it’s useless. It doesn’t want to load in unless there’s strong signal or WiFi connected. We would get lost with this! What’s the point? I remember when map/gps apps were more robust and had enough built in data that you didn’t need cell data to use them. With phone storage capacity on the rise, companies shouldn’t be afraid anymore to make a larger app that can be used standalone.

- Incredible

What a beautiful app. It should become increasingly obvious through using this app that their is a God of this world, that God being the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. This app allows you to travel the expanse of this earth from your living room and see the wonders God has truly created that is talked about in Genesis 1, where it says “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth...” To know God personally though, read his word — the Bible — download the app, and dive into his truth to know how you can have a personal relationship with the God who created what men can only marvel at.

- Amazing app but there’s one problem☹️

This app is amazing I really recommend getting it! But the thing is you only have a Birdseye view of the places you want to see you can’t see it like it’s right in front of you and when you Google your house it looks different from what it looked like a long time ago it’s gonna look like it looks like a long time ago is it is it gonna have a new upgrades that you put on your house. Say you Google the Eiffel tower you’re only seening what it looks like a long time ago not how it actually looks like today. That one comes really frustrates me😡! So that’s the one problem with this amazing app.😍😭

- Such a cool app, but could be better

I love the power of this app. There are only a couple things I wish they would improve on. I would love to see the ability to pin locations in this that would then also be on my Google maps, or vice versa, see pins I've made in Google maps show up here. My other actually complaint is that if you leave the app for maybe only a minute and come back to it, it resets. Losing the location you left on. I use this app a lot researching places I plan to hike, and I'm constantly bouncing from app to app. It's incredibly annoying to have to figure out where I was every time it decides to reset.

- Very good earth

I’ve Got new season to play and play with you all the way you are and your family was the time of the year and the end to end up with this game I don’t have a game that I will be playing this time and it has to play me in a few minutes I play Minecraft it is super super cool and I love this game it makes it super super cool I play it and play the play play and it makes it a super fun super super cool game to kill all the game play it makes you want a good start up game you need to start a play game and it makes it fun and super cool and super super game super cool.

- Watching what I do

I really liked this app a lot. It has great info and I relied on it to show parts of the world that I wanted to learn about. Today on Facebook someone mentioned a part of the world that I’m not familiar with, the Isle of Skye. I went to Google Earth and I hadn’t typed in more than the first two letters when it suggested Isle of Skye. Apparently it’s watching other apps I’m using and since it’s a Google app that info, no doubt, is now a part of the info it sends back to Google. I should have kept it off of my phone, I figured it was harmless because I only used it when I needed it, but apparently that’s not the case. What other private info is now in the Google data base, I have no idea. If you value your privacy, stay away. Caveat emptor, as they say. It’s gone now.

- Stopped using Google Earth

Update: Non existent support. They’re so unprofessional that they don’t respond to Apple app reviews. In my opinion, companies like that should have their products removed from the Apple App Store. —— I give...they'll never figure out how to design an "intelligent" user interface. I stopped using Google Earth a couple of months ago. The tab to unhide the place images at the bottom of the main display is too big and it should disappear when not touch for a few seconds. Then there are the four lines of copyright information that overlays the map at the bottom of the main display. You still cannot hide the GUI so you can see the the whole map without having to keep moving the map image around. By Google!

- Slow, outdated, and awful software

I used to love google earth about two years ago, but after a new update, the whole thing went down hill. First, the satellite view of some places, for example San Francisco, was out dated by at least three years. Second, the new up date doesn’t include Wikipedia shortcuts, or simple explanatory anymore. And, you can’t turn the stuff off the settings that you don’t want, like let’s say you only want road feature on, well tough luck be cause it doesn’t allow that. Lastly, if you scroll around eventually at least on my tablet, the app closes and shuts off for no reason. This app has so much potential and it’s a shame that it is like this. I hope google can fix there problems soon.

- Update

I’ve always loved google earth, but you guys haven’t updated several street view photos for years... I looked right my by work on street view and the picture was taken way before I even started working there 4 years ago. And sometimes I’ll go to search for something and the search bar doesn’t even work. Same with clicking on places on the map, it’ll say ‘knowledge card unavailable’. Why? When it was just working 2 seconds ago... doesn’t make sense. I feel like google should have some of the best running apps but this one still needs a lot of work..

- Cant save places or easily sync them from somewhere else

Im going on a trip with my family somewhere soon and recently saved a bunch of places on google earth on a public library computer, assuming it would auto save to my account bc usually google is awesome like that. so i download the app so i can see what i had previously saved and it turns out the only way you can do that is by going on the computer you saved them to and manually moving them. and!! not only that but you cant even start all over again because you cant even save places on the app at all! so if you just want to look around places with no way what-so-ever to save the info that you find, then this is the perfect app for you!


Great app! runs very smooth on iPad pro, tho images may be outdated for some areas, it is still very useful for us at work, we load our library of KML files and one feature we would like to see for the mobile version is to be able to share within the KML file as in the pro version for desktop that way we dont have to constantly switch between mobile or desktop. Please add this feature it will really help us with our productivity!!!

- I preferred the previous version.

Personally I preferred the previous version for a couple reasons. The biggest reason being that the app would save the information in a cache from areas you previously viewed. This was extremely helpful for hiking and backpacking in areas where there is no signal. By viewing areas before I left I could fully use the app out of service. Now, without a signal, the app is useless in the backcountry. Another reason I prefer the old version is because of the panoramio photos. This was nice for areas that aren’t popular. Overall the app is satisfactory but I preferred the old app with the features I mentioned.

- Love the app! Could use a couple of features.

The load speeds are awesome compared to loading things up on GE Pro on my PC. All of the learning features are pretty great too, and the 3D features are top quality! If I had any suggestions, I’d love to be able to take pictures of places from my phone and upload them into the Google Earth database directly from this app. Also, the Google Earth Pro program has an ability to see current weather patterns in action, and it would make this app even more amazing!

- Goggles are great

Goggles are great because they can help us this goggle was showing pretty pictures I love the pictures and I think I want to go and see them in real life so I know how pretty it is I am thinking about a lot of people will be going to there to see it because I’m sure that it is beautiful and it’s very great to see them again and again 👏👏👍👍👥👨‍👩‍👧👩‍👩‍👧👩‍👩‍👧👩‍👩‍👧‍👦👨‍👩‍👦‍👦👨‍👩‍👦‍👦👩‍👩‍👦‍👦👨‍👨‍👦‍👦👨‍👨‍👦‍👦 and some dogs will be there🐶🐶🐶🐶🐶🐱🐱🐱🐱🐱🦜🦜🦜🦜🦜🐕🐕🐕🐕🐕🏎🚗🚲🛴🚘🛳⛴🚢🇵🇷🇵🇷🏳️‍🌈🏳️‍🌈🇺🇸🇺🇸🇻🇳🇻🇳🇨🇱🇨🇱🇨🇫🇨🇫🇨🇳🇨🇳🇯🇪🇯🇪🇿🇲🇿🇲🇬🇮🇬🇮🇯🇴🇯🇴

- Used to be a LOT better

In 2010 this website/app used to have accurate pictures instead of 3D looking maps. When I was a little girl I remember it used to be actual pictures of the earth so you can see places as if you were there in person. This is very inaccurate, Google Earth went backwards in time instead of forwards. I saw google maps the other day and maybe they switched the way it works between the both of them? Google maps is the older version of google earth and now google earth is some... 3D looking weird unrealistic.... I could keep going on but this is very very disappointing! Step it up again. What happened to the real/ realistic google earth??

- Okaaaayy....

I used to love this app, and I still do- it’s just it’s not the same. I remember being able to go to the bottom of the ocean and summits of mountains, and now I can’t. Also, the land looks more like a simulator than a real view. Besides those things, I love the app. Especially the new exploring Option and the “I’m feeling lucky” option where they take you to random places over the world. Overall, it’s a great app and I use it often, especially since quarantine. I just wish it had better quality.

- Crashes

This is one of my favorite and most used apps but as on the past few days it crashes just after a few seconds and freezes up. I try to zoom into a town or city, and it never fully loads anything. It’s like it will only work for about 5 seconds and just stop. And sweet view hasn’t worked either On iPhone 8 so it’s not like I’m on an underpowered device. Used to work really well up until a few days ago. Just did the update and tried it a few times, no change. Still not working well, barely working at all Please fix

- Amazing

I love this app to look at childhood home etc. it’s incredible. But what I’ve noticed lately is that my son ...he’s disabled and well this app has been amazing in the most unexpected way: you see he’s like driving around the neighborhood he goes from street to street or he’s driving around town. To get gas groceries’s awesome. Absolutely love love love this. I also got to show him where I grew up. Thank you google for this goes above and beyond seeing the world. ❤️❤️❤️

- It is Amazing, But...

Okay, I have recently installed this app. I was excited as it was downloading... but when I started playing I had come apon disappointment. The detail was much less than I had suspected. I had then read the critical reviews and found many complaints saying that the graphics used to be better. Please bring back the old style! Let us explore! I can’t even see some places! When I try going to a random place, sometimes I end up in the ocean and I cannot even see the island.

- Awesome! Only needs one feature to be perfect

Great app! Works very smoothly on my iPad. The only thing I wish google would add is the ability to save custom pins, and maybe have different colors or shapes to differentiate between the types of locations you’re saving? And perhaps add a button to “show” or “hide” the pins you’ve saved, since I guess some people wouldn’t like the clutter. Please, I’m BEGGING you, let me save all the weird stuff I’ve found on your awesome satellites

- For other users...

This app is great but Before you get mad about the fact google earth haven’t updated in years, think about it from their prospective. Do you know how long it takes to drive on every road in the world while at the same time take pictures not just from street view but from space? It takes years and millions of dollars. You should be thankful to even see your house. If you are unhappy do it yourself.

- Love it!

Love the app, love looking around the whole world! Features I want you to put on iOS or mobile devices is to put time travel instead of it on just PC even thought I have a PC I still think it would be cool if you added it on here and even time travel on street view if possible. Also try to make everything 3D since my house isn’t 3D yet but it’s getting closer though. I would like to see my house and my town in 3D that would be really cool!


Would it kill them to actually listen to people’s ideas? Good lord, there’s no cross-platform consistency with these google apps. Too many bugs with this and other google apps make them very unstable. For example, historical aerial view is only available on google earth for computers. Historical street view is only available on computer browsers. It used to be a thing on mobile browsers but it was removed. And you can’t make kmz files on mobile google earth, something which would be really helpful. I really hope they can fix these completely useless inconsistencies and make their apps useful again.

- Why

Like some other people my problem is the date of the pictures they look great for old landmarks but if you look at your house you'll notice that it's a very old picture at least 3 years cause that's what I noticed and the picture is pretty old my house was still being built in that picture and that was a good while ago and if you'll notice I'm keeping one star captive untill you update app and retake the pictures and I know it'll be hard to do but still.👌🏻👌🏻👌🏻👌🏻👌🏻

- Reason why it should change and critiques

Goggle earth is great but you three d imagery is getting sloppy I want to look at the White House in three d but I. Cant but a can see a office building and it is a great company but it is getting slow I want to play where in the world is carmen sandiago but when I press on it it doesn’t take me there or when I am doing a quiz and I answer it usually takes me there but now it is not and I want to make this clear I think the google earth company is great no shame but I am just critiquing and the borders are bad I have a picture to show and it is just slow and some of the 2 d imagery's are bad looking

- Review please read!

Google earth maps and stuff is great with all its features but there is one thing I would like to see added back in that was there before. When I was younger and had an older (not much older tho) version of google earth I was able to go off track.. like get off the roads-walk around on the beach-and even on mountains.. but OFF ALL ROADS there was no limit, I could cross the ocean even. When I was younger I also was able to go to SeaWorld in google earth and walk around the rides, even under them, I could go anywhere! I played around sea world like that and it was so fun! I was very disappointed when I found you have to now stay on roads, please fix this and turn Google earth back, I would really appreciate it! Good app tho, please add it back! 😁😊😊🥺😜🤩 Thankyou, From Jess

- Outdated and poor interaction

I live on the outskirts of a major city and our house has not been updated in about a decade . When I check your schedule it says “ Illawarra area” this year . The “ Illawarra area “ is huge and parts of the illawarra are updated almost every 12 months . Our street isn’t off the beaten track , in fact we are in the fastest growing area of the Illawarra , yet homes in our street which are very well established , some even on their first overhaul renovation since being built are still showing vacant blocks of land on your Google Earth app . Considering many finance companies and tradespeople use your app to do remote quotes and evaluations I find it poor form for you to have our homes looking like they did 10 years ago . I’ve tried leaving comments on your page , I tried reporting issue , I’ve tried everything but you guys just don’t respond or acknowledge my communications . So now it’s just frustrating and has left me of poor opinion of your app . It’s useless to me . I’ve read your forums , following the advice from your superusers just leaves everyone coming back in a big circle to the same result which is , “ sit and wait and hope they’ll be around one day .. OR go out and take a pic and try to upload it ... yeah na , sorry . Maybe when you realise that Kanahooka Australia 2530 is part of Earth then maybe I’ll consider coming back . Even Apple frequent the area more than you .

- VR please

Can u add a vr mode and make it so you don’t need a controller if this is already a thing than I’m sorry but if it ain’t than just imagine being anywhere you want if your home sick or you really wanted to go somewhere but couldn’t afford to fly where.. especially due to covid and the boarders being closed☹️ than all of a sudden you discover that google earth just got a new update that you can go anywhere you want thanks to virtual reality (VR) please add this update to google earth I think it would be really cool and everyone would appreciate it thank you for taking the time in reading my suggestion

- The developers should be fired

Google Earth used to be good in that the satellite top down view’s image quality used to be actual real satellite pictures stitched together. The newest updates has given way to “fancy” 3D viewing even in satellite top down view (where it should be default 2D). The application of persistent computer generated 3D layering by google earth means when zooming into anything further than about 10KM (or zoom in on a particular area more than say 4 city blocks in area size using NYC for example) would result in a computer generated 3D image merged with or act as an overlay on top of the actual satellite imagery. E.g. The top of a tree when viewing in satellite mode or 2D top down view now looks like a tree out of sim city even if you’ve only zoomed to say an area size of a city block. The end effect is if you wanted to explore a city block from top down (not street view), google has sacrificed using real satellite imagery with some sort of combined satellite + computer generated 3D rendering which makes everything looks like a bad attempt at some sort of google earth VR demo.... Maybe that’s where they are planning to take google earth hence the persistent 3D rendering in google earth regardless of viewing mode or highest quality selected in app settings. Clearing cache etc. do not work either.

- Update of the world

This app is amazing but it has one problem. All the places are old, could you try and update this app to what the world looks like right now (2019). The park in adelaide (Roy Marten Park) is fully built but when i look it up it is still renovating. If the updates of what the world would look like right now that would be 5 stars from me. If it is hard to make these changes u could make the changes every year? At least please make the google earth app seem like there is always a camera there and that it keeps up to date with the world. Thank you 😌

- Longtitude

In the settings on the app, is longtitude really a word? Also, if I search a for a place and then realise I’ve put in the wrong address by say just one number or letter eg if I typed 142 instead of 143, I can’t click on the wrong address and hold down my finger to highlight and delete the wrong number and type in the right number. I have to type the whole address again. Otherwise I love Google Earth

- Not exactly the best

This app is great and all but it needs an update because everything is a bit foggy and well yeah it’s like two years ago photos so it’s not exactly the best because say something used to have solar panels and then they take them away you can just see photos from two years ago and they still have the solar panels so that’s been really annoying because am I am building a house at riddles Creek and it had a picture of the house being built but it’s already built

- Needs updated street view and satellite view

1 Example of outdated street and satellite view: the latest street view of the Hampton park shops still is from 2018. The old building has been demolished. Same with the satellite view. This is 1 example of how you are still not helping us see what the world looks like TODAY (JANUARY 2020).

- Update

Great app, but instead of adding bug fixes in the updates you could spend your time updating it each year, because I go to places I’ve been to and go “there’s meant to be something there, isn’t there?” Then I go again and I’m like” google earth needs to be updated!” What’s really annoying is seeing a satellite image in summer for one paddock and another in the middle of winter. Please update this way and I will re-download google earth

- Would definitely give 5 stars if this was updated regularly

This used to be an amazing program which was updated regularly but seems like it doesn’t get updated at all definitely worth downloading but just needs to be updated at least once a year not once every 5 years happy to give 5 stars when this app and satellites pictures are updated

- Very good but

There is a glitchy area in Chania, Crete, Greece. It’s really blurry and it’s rainbow colors and when I went to street view, everything looks normal. And there are a few more like the one in Russia and a few other places. So could you please try to fix it? Also I love this app, it’s great.

- Please can you do more updates on streets and placesP

If you could make like updates on street view because I would like to see my house that was just build a few moths ago in street view if you could that would make me happy :)

- Google Earth.

Fantastic,but old maps 2 years old(Perth)I've had solar panels on my roof 2 years now,but not on google maps,also former house 4 years old still has old shed in garden, should have swimming pool. Still no change. What’s going on.....?.. Latest upload = can now measure distance. Ha ha how do you fit a mouse on this !!!!!!!!! I’m stumped,?

- What happened to mars and the moon?

4 years ago, I used this and I could go and look at mars. I mean, the photos weren’t as detailed, but I could look at the stars and our Moon plus, I could also see planet Mars. What the heck happened? P.S. also, could you update your photos. Thnx

- Like

I like google earth but please can you update the street view pics, have had solar panels on my roof since about 2010 and there are new housing developments in the area but street views show about 2009 roughly era where as looking down is updated, would nice be updated all round re photos

- Please do this

Google can you pls make everything 3d and also can you add a time selector because the street view shows the past time because now it’s 2018 I will love google earth if this was added

- Google Earth review 1

Hi Google, I love Google Earth but can you please add historical images and places that google earth lets you look at multiple years back on iOS? Also, can you make access to more roads such as the newer ones? When will a new version be out?

- Amazing quality

They way that google actually made the photos that they took of every street is amazing and how perfectly you can see everything

- Good app but...

I really like this app but it’s annoying sometimes because if you try to use street view and you click on the blue dot sometimes it says that there’s no street view available when I’m clearly clicking on the dot.

- Needs to be updated...

Hey creator!, I have a problem 😥the world needs to be updated it’s 2020 right now and I can’t even see my new house it was built 10 months ago and I can see it so can you pls update!🤩

- What’s Happening?

Google Earth is a great app. I’d rate it 5 stars...on a computer. I use an iPad mini 3, and when I go into the app, it loads and loads but it just doesn’t show anything on the screen. I’ve tried everything but it just won’t budge. How do I get past this?

- Hello

We love this google earth app it has cool new features and is fun for everyone to use,you should down load it because if you download it your life will become easier and better

- Update

The images I can see are not the most updated ones, probably a few years old. Would help more if you could update the images more frequently or even go real-time. That would be awesome!

- I saw one of the cars today

I saw one today and I assumed that there redoing google earth and updating it which is a good thing to do because I can see my house fully renovated and you can to!!! Thanks google

- 3D perspective looks squashed

Whats up with the 3D view, everything looks squashed or partial 3D? Some of the capitals or major or important sites are ok. Some places with fake graphics over top map location Im expecting SIM City game buses and cars to be moving on roads......not sure this is “improving app”


ok yes its all good and great but the pictures are from YEARS ago. but can you update the photos to 2019 because it shows buildings that are in the process of getting built etc, When Now they are already built and have changed

- Update

You guys like, really need to update your pics!! Like, my house, even on google maps, is sooo old. Especially some of the schools I pass every now and have finished renovating but on Google Earth they haven’t. Other than that, It is an amazing app.

- Great work

A lot of people dislike this app because it has bugs and lack of 3D models and stuff blah blah blah but I think you guys have done an exceptional job with this app and no-one seems to understand how hard it is making an interactive WORLD MAP!!!! GREAT JOB! LOVE THE APP!!!!!!

- Update the view

The devs need to update the pictures taken, especially in 2020, since they have gone a whole year or more without updating the pictures or views for anything all around the world.


When I downloaded this app I searched a few other countries then I had a idea I tried to find my house but it took me a few minutes IT WORKED but the only problem is that it showed how when i first bought it but it was STILL AWESOME

- it’s got better graphics confusing

quick install buildings a so clear! great details about location and distance it is fun LACKS instructions goes to map automatically very annoying

- Needs to be updated images

Hi guys I recommend that you make some more improvements such as making more city’s 3D, updating images about every season and much more But other that that it’s the best google app I have

- Update your app please!!!

It’s a great app but needs to be updated almost once a month or so there is a bulldog (near me) that was under construction when the photos where taken now it’s been complete since 2012

- Needs updating

This app is great except some places have not been updated for 5 years, my house only has dirt in the front yard but I’ve had grass for 4 years now. Great app but they just need to update a lot of places.

- Fix outdated 🙄

This is so outdated in smaller towns. So many houses have been built in my home town and you only focus on the bigger cities. Unless you take more frequent images my rating will stay 2 stars. I’ve seen MANY reviews like this and if you don’t take more photos then you will lose people using this app. Delete.

- Amazing but one thing...

Maybe you could add that you can go to your destination whilst using the marker or pin, whatever it’s called but I think that would be good so just consider that


Thank u for making this game its so helpful I gave it 5 stars this game is really good I get to see new places on Earth it’s really fun and if I need to go somewhere I’ll see if I can see if it’s on this so thank u

- Good, but....

The app is good and works well. But one of the BIGGEST missing features is viewing historical satellite imagery like desktop versions of the app (scrolling through years of historical images). This would be a wonderful feature and would make it a 5 star app.

- Love it

This is amazing because I can see the world from the comfort of my home And also could you add a time travel feature?

- Just wanted to time travel

Great app but where did the ability to see past photos go? I was really hoping to get a screen grab of a location thats no longer around. Shame google earth couldn’t help with that

- Please update

I want you to update your Photos in google earth so then it would be a better reviewed picture

- Developer

Dear developer: Hello,I have a few questions: Can I turn fake stuff on? if i can can you please tell me how cause I am a fan of this app! This app lets me explore show people new land marks even go on holidays? Iv never had a better app! Also you need to add a share button in this app so I can share this app with my friends cause they all love to explore! I’d think I’d make my friends really happy with this!

- Moar potential use

Love this app and use it for many purposes. I have some ideas that could increase even MOAR people to use the app. Mineral and resources map: e.g. where our iron and steel comes from. Topography style and climate style maps (My personal favourite) History borders!!!!!!! See borders of countries from certian time periods e.g. the british empire, the United States empire, Siamese empire, Bolivar e.t.c. Or like don’t and have a competitor do it, have immediate regret and lose potential customers... and profit. Your choice!

- Please read review

Hey, this is a great app but it needs to be updated. When i search up my address, it goes back to my house five years ago. Please update and like i said it is a great app.

- Great but could be better

This app as of July 2018 is great for everything Earth, but I hope that other planets in our solar system get added in again, I would love to see what a solar eclipse looks like and get different perspectives.

- Old google earth

You really should have it back how old google earth worked. You could travel absolutely anywhere I don’t understand why it’s been changed. I enjoyed going off track into the middle of nowhere. Please put it back to how it used to be.

- Why

Why was the location finder removed. I used to be able to open the screen from the = button and hit my location button and it would take me to where I was at that particular time, it is gone, why

- Drop pins

Excellent app! Just a question, is there a way to save personal drop pins etc like the windows based Google Earth?

- Google Earth

I love Google Earth because, I can visit my old house and I can visit just anything. I love it you should really try it, :-)😀

- Keeps crashing?

Why is google earth crashing please fix😄?

- Fsj British Columbia needs update

We need n update for fsj British Columbia last time it was updated it was 4 or 5 years ago

- ...

Très utile, autant pour l’école que pour soi! L’application se ferme parfois, mais ce n’est pas un problème la plupart du temps

- ???

Its lit

- No historical imagery on mobile/web/updated versions

Get your ducks in a row Google, I'm tired of losing features. Historical imagery should have been integrated on mobile devices (any tablet at least) a long time ago.

- Google earth

You really need to update this more often with the changes that happen regularly

- Update it

Update this so we can see what everything looks like in either 2019 or 2020

- Amazing! And it’s Ok!

This is an “OK” and “Awesome” App!, It helps me if Its the Right place or not! 😋

- Update images!

Come on....these images are old! We put a pool in 3-4 years ago and cleared our property - but according to Google Earth, nope.

- Works okay

Can’t figure out how to do measurements, pc version has so much more and easier to use

- Help.

Usually works fine. But suddenly the earth is blurred and street view is refusing to work?

- Absolute garbage

Slow and extremely old view of the street. Huge difference between the desktop and mobile versions. This is pure garbage

- Poor Border Visability

Why are all borders so difficult to see? A cynic would call this deliberate.

- Update!!!!

Northern Alberta Canada needs to be updated!!!!

- Ok

You really need an update! I can see a car in front of my mom and dads house that they haven’t had for years! And picture quality isn’t very good

- Great

To see what happened 3-4 yrs. ago🤦‍♂️

- Winter photos?

The winter photography of central and northern Ontario make this app useless!

- Needs lots of work

Google Earth needs to be debugged. I can’t tell you how annoying it is when the find my location button doesn’t work. It displays my location from when I opened the app and will not update my location when I press the button. Plus, it is an absolute huge battery hog. I dropped from 40% to 5% in 10 minutes. Not even! Also, the map, even when on WiFi and LTE, still requires 30-45 seconds for the street view to buffer. Now, a recommendation for you is that it should also set it up so that it syncs with maps so that all your places from google maps, are visible on google earth. Overall though, very powerful application and it just barely gets the job done. If your going to publish an app, do it right. These bugs have been here for a months. At the time, I had hoped that there was an update to fix it. Still waiting for that update!!!

- Recycling

Works for 3 days then doesn’t load anything in. Re downloading it is the only way to fix.

- 3D wasn’t great

Wouldn’t exactly call it 3D but it was really cool other wise

- Review Rating

Not very user friendly. Doesn’t always send you to the exact address.

- I like it

I do like the app but there are some downsides. It is difficult to navigate and sometimes you don’t get the perspective points that you want, but over all very helpful!!

- Pretty good

You guys need a new update of the earth it’s all old we got new stuff now and stuff changed

- Update needed

For a 5 star rating, how about doing a recent update over the city of Calgary? Your current maps are 4 and possibly 5 years old. A lot has changed since. Thank you.

- Update !!!!

Quebec needs to be updated. Moved to Cowansville QC two years ago and we are still living in a huge sandpit, how disappointing !

- Travel in bed

Unbelievable how someone could find any complaint with this.

- No layers

The Google Earth app for iPad though very good does not have a sidebar with the rich access to layers of info that is available on the Mac and Windows app. Any work arounds?

- old map not up to date

today on street 164 Ingles Street Port Melbourne Australia still the 2014 version we are today in march 2019

- it’s okay..

It takes FOREVER to load.. I have never actually been able to go in to google earth because of it has been taking so long. I hope you can fix this.

- Once loved this app. No more.

Just doesn’t work well anymore.

- Behind the times

Map of neighbourhood in BC is pre 2006. Good work fellas.

- Bring back the old version

You used to be able to see borders and country/ city names in the old version. With this one it no longer seems to display that information. I don't like it. If you don't care about that, then this version is ok. But if you're like me then don't download this app.

- Wonderful

So i got to see my ibf's house! And it's wonderful!

- Oh... you wanna see a review?

Well here ya go.. it’s terrible

- Terrible

Can't tell what anything is and everything is coloured incorrectly. Awful app don't use.

- Clavier

Quand je fais une recherche, j’ai la moitié du clavier seulement!

- Ty

Cool app I love it but it’s a good way of making money I don’t know if you’re still in town or not

- Update


- U can find creepy stufF

Ummm u can find wired and creepy stuff pls let that stay

- Update taal volcano Philippines

Taal volcano erupted in 2020

- Update

My streeetview is 2017 I want it on September 2020 automatically not 2017

- Not good

Just so so

- I guess It’s fine.

On Mobile, St. Georges Newfoundland and other places, need to be updated. In St. Georges, the year is around 2012 or 2013. Update it,

- Awsome!

This is Great, an update would be liked and preferde, but its still fun and useful.

- Needs a major update on most towns and cities

This app needs an update severely some places are over 10 years behind I like the technology but the update is not there

- Great but

I love this app but I really wish we could free Rome around because I wanna see my house but I can’t because it doesn’t let me go off the one street it other and please I beg you please update the map 🤞🤞🏻🤞🏼🤞🏽🤞🏾🤞🏿🙏🙏🏻🙏🏼🙏🏽🙏🏾🙏🏿

- Very good!

Very useful app for many things, especially stuff like the BTE Minecraft project that is taking place. One thing that would be very helpful is the ability to measure heights of structures in meters.

- Can you update Canada and everything again soon? <3

I’ll continue if you update it ;) My house is like broken... WTF.

- Disappointed

The “Greenland” for instance has too many cover ups lol, I wouldn’t be surprised about elsewhere that’s covered up with lies 😪

- To good

This is to cool

- Bad update

This was an extremely useful App before the latest update. I don’t know what you did to it but it has lost the best part of itself. Whatever you did to it, I wish you would undo it. It’s use to Truckers took a big hit with the changes. I would have given it a high rating except for the latest change.

- MY DOOR ISNT PURPLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Dear app creators, I understand that you cannot be changing your pictures every day but, my fricken door hasn’t been PURPLE for at least THREE YEARS!!! And we repainted the white door at least a year ago. Other than that I’m pretty much happy with the app, I have this exact same problem with the rest of the google apps too! Please think about updating the pictures sometime, that would make a lot of people happier with this app. -Unanimous Person

- Why

Like some other people my problem is the date of the pictures they look great for old landmarks but if you look at your house you'll notice that it's a very old picture at least 3 years cause that's what I noticed and the picture is pretty old my house was still being built in that picture and that was a good while ago and if you'll notice I'm keeping one star captive untill you update app and retake the pictures and I know it'll be hard to do but still.👌🏻👌🏻👌🏻👌🏻👌🏻

- Class work hear I come!

This really made it a lot easier to make a paper on a place around the world because with google maps we can see all the special features like amusement parks or movie theatres that are famous for that area such as Canada’s wonder land but it’s also a bit difficult to find certain spots because I definitely know how hard it must be to take all these photos but it would be nice if I could see a bit more updated parts really great app in all tho!!

- 5 stars, but...

Updated comment: “My Location” is now on the main display. Thanks! The rest of my original comment still holds. I’ve only used the Voyager and dice buttons once just to see what they do. Not something I need instant access to. Original comment: Works fine, but it would be nice if the “My Location” button was on the main display either as a default or as an option to put it there. Additionally, the two buttons that, in my opinion, could be buried in the “...” menu button are the Voyager and the dice buttons. Useless. I’m interested in where I’m going and what’s around me when I get there. This may come as a shock to the Google-ites that made this app but users can actually think for themselves and if they want to explore the world, they’ll explore.

- No alternative on the market

I don't like Google at all, but Google Earth is the one application that everyone should have on their phone. I am the kind of person that uses Apple Maps for navigation but Google Earth and Street View for "exploring," especially as a roadgeek. With the new A9-A10 processors moving is buttery smooth compared to my old iPhone 5s. Currently though the app won't open, so this review is subject to change. Also, the removal of map caching is a detriment. But on a good day this is a great app.

- Very helpful App

I love Google earth in all the ways but I have to say they need to update at least every two years, I may be asking to much cause I know it may cost and take some time but my property and other places look different today cause we been planting plants and people had been building houses and other kind of things and it doesn’t show up. Anyway it can be just cool to see an update picture no one with more that 6 years old. Thanks Google Earth.

- Lies.

I read a developer’s response. It said “Great news! The game has been updated. Now you can see all the up-to-date photos!” Yeah right. So you’re saying when I search up my house and it’s when my pool was being built, that’s up to date? No. I’m not blind, I can clearly see what’s outside my house and what’s not. Where’s my pool? My pool is an essential part of my house. I wouldn’t be able to recognize my house without that pool! So they “updated” the game? More like ignored the reviews asking for an up to date photo! Don’t download this app unless you want old photos. This especially annoys me because I don’t want people seeing the old version of my house. Sincerely, dIsSaTiSfIeD

- Very beautiful and nice app, but needs a feature

There’s a feature that needs to be added, The feature allows people to go in the past of earth. Going in the past will allow people to see what earth was when it was young, Maybe google can add Google “Planet”. And there is another feature to be explained, That other feature allows people to zoom out and explore our galaxy and solar system.

- Google Past

google, I think the content and quality is really nice. I like every feature like feeling lucky and street view. But I am working on a project, and we need streets and houses of the past. Maybe you can create a Google Earth Past Version? Even though sometimes you cannot create the exact buildings, I need a past version. I need to look at buildings without searching it up everywhere online. Thanks!

- Just a timely thought...

You Googlers should add a map layer to visualize the COVID-19 global spread, based on whatever best accurate data you have access to. While it would certainly be interesting/ potentially useful to get a scope of its current reach globally. It would also be very useful to be able to re-watch its spread in the future to better understand how a pandemic materializes and as a use case for how to possibly combat a similar occurrence in the future.

- One more feature?

You have really improved this app, it runs much smoother than before, and has great new features. But can I request something? I would love to see the ‘Sky View’ that is part of the desktop version. To be able to see the stars and galaxies from the sky view would make this app killer. I appreciate your consideration on that. And thanks for what you have already done with it.

- Satellite Views needs updating.

I really do enjoy the app, but I found out, today, that you maps are out dated...well...for where I live, at least. I was looking at different places, around town, and realized that areas, that appeared on the app, had changed years ago. So, I compared this app to my Google Maps, app. To sum it up...your views are outdated. Later, I’ll compare this app’s views to the online version’s views. Don’t take this the wrong way. I’m not saying this a terrible app. This is still a cool app. Just saying that the views need to be updated.

- Good but not up to date

This a great app but not 100% up to date like how some of the areas are 3D but the rest are only 2D but they also need to take the picture again like at Disney the pandora land isn’t even close to being finished and it was done last year I also liked when their were pictures every where but now you can only use 20 pictures per location including Atlanta GA airport but on the other hand it is kind of a good app

- A Much Needed App!

This Game Is A Very Much Needed App For When You Want To Go Somewhere Without Leaving The Comforts Of Your Home! You Can See Parks And The Hole Word If You Are Bored! I Love This Game A Lot! I Like Seeing All The Fun Places! I Even Went To Paris! It Is Amazing How Big The World Is. I Love How You Can Walk Around On A Hiking Trail While You Are Really Just In Your Bed. And How You Can See Pyramids While You Can Be On The Other Side Of The World. The Reason I Only Made It 4 Star Is Because I Want To Walk And Explore More Places! Still A Very Great App! A Must Have!

- Needs an UPDATE!

Is it just me or when you look up your house does it show a picture from 10 years ago. I have lived in this house for ten years and the picture is from 2004. I know they have to drive to get the pictures of the places but I think they should get some more recent pictures of places. I would recommend this app but it needs an update unless you like seeing pictures of places from several years ago. So, not dreadful but not the best if you want see recent pictures like me.😐

- Google is super fun for people to know where they are

I love Google earth because I don’t know where I need to go and not to go Google earth is my favorite app on my iPad Pro it is one of my favorite apps because it shows me where shopping malls cities houses neighborhoods And streets and all those other stuff Google earth is a app for everybody so they know where to go. Thank you so much for reading this I hope you have fun having this app.

- images are still out of date

A reply from the developer claimed that 2D has more updated images...not true. 2D has the exact same images as the 3D map, and the photos haven't been updated for at least five years. But i'm just using it to explore different terrains around the globe, so i don't really mind the out-of-date photos. i do, however, take issue with inaccurate responses. So, developers, if you're going to reply, please be honest. i'd rather you just say "yeah, it's out of date, eh well." than be fed a line of malarkey.

- Cool, but could be improved.

I love that I can almost anywhere in the world and see it as though I’m there. However, I think the app could definitely have a much better UI (that doesn’t need a tutorial). I’m glad a tutorial is included, but no one has the time nor cares about reading through it. Google has been well known for having great UI’s with little to no learning curve until recently. It would be great to go back to those days.

- Love it...but

I actually love this app but I’ve seen a few glitches here and there, blue, red and green spots on the map. Another thing tho; the Eiffel Tower looks perfectly 3D but not the pyramids at Giza, etc why!?... also I’ve seen many blurry squares on a lot of places around the globe.. it’ll be nice to see it fixed. Last but not least; it would be wonderful to be able to switch between the moon, mars and Earth on the mobile version...

- I’m amazed

Technology has come so far! This app allows you to go virtually anywhere on this planet! It’s an amazing app, but here’s an idea; you could release an app just like this, but for iOS 11 or up, because it’d contain augmented reality! I think it’d be awesome to turn a field into a city with the point of a camera! I hope you guys get to read this, because I, along with many others, would pay for this app.

- Maps are SO ancient

Come on people, what’s the point of having this app available if the maps are ancient? I understand things are constantly changing and new buildings are going up faster than ever, but the map of my neighborhood has got to be 10 years old at least! We have hundreds of homes, yet GE images show just a handful and a lot of vacant land! Funny thing is, a year ago GE maps showed my neighbors next door and the one across the street, but since the update those homes vanished!! Maps went BACK in time! Get it together people please. And I’m in the 2D view as you suggested to others... still obsolete!

- Meh

Why are the oceans not available for actual viewing, except for right around land? Also, there are plenty of obvious digital “air brush” strokes/mistakes, inverted areas (in oceans and on land), and intentionally blurred areas (I would guess, I mean why would everything around them be clear but only a specific part be pixelated beyond recognition?). C’mon billion dollar Google, can you not render the oceans and land masses properly? Over all, sure, most things run smooth. ...but there are glaring mistakes. It’s like you don’t even care, Google machine 😢


I have experienced all the countries and I’m starting to get bored i want a back to the past feature all the way to when the first country existed.. and show the flags of the country’s and the name shall be exalty the name it was at it’s time and also add war mode to see wars in action and if you don’t do it ima delete this game in a few months and I whould give this 5 stars so do it pls :after few years JUST DO IT edit: alright now I’m older then that, Why no past mode :( Also I’m sending this again so u can see it

- Amazing School App

In my 31 years of teaching, I have never found an app better than Google Earth. Every single day, my students beg me to let them use it. So, whenever it’s time for geography, I allow the kids 30 minutes to do anything they want on Google Earth. It is an app that entertains and educates at the same time. I advise all teachers to download and share it. Thank you, Google!

- Good, but needs update!

I have loved to use this app and explore, but lately I have been experiencing crashes every single minute. And it starts to load up slowly now, back then it was fine. I was just using the app a few minutes ago, and it’s LITERALLY crashed every 20-90 seconds, and I would have to re-open the app. Please fix this, I love the app, but there are some MAJOR bugs. I can’t even get a solid minute just to find something, or look around, without the app crashing.

- Formerly cool thing, all is now nothing special

You cannot really see anything anymore. Not fun. Hoped it was either my version or my tablet, but noooo. It’s been crummy for soooo long. We should write off this term: Google Earth. Pull back real hard on the sides of your eyes from a block away, that’s as good as it gets. Yes. It used to be a terrifically enjoyable app. Like you could really travel virtually. Someone jerked all the snap out of this now fuzzy mess pretending to be representative of the great things He hath done. Praise the just makes me stay away and go out there and see for myself.

- Good but...

Google Earth is a useful geographical app used by many people to find and locate your desired location. I was going in to Google Earth and it wouldn’t load. Then I realized that it wasn’t the first time Google Earth wouldn’t load. I checked my WiFi and cellular data to make sure everything was connected. Everything was connected. Then I went on to my App Store to see if there were any updates or bug fixes. As a matter of fact, there were. So I updated Google Earth. And then, it still wouldn’t load. I was becoming frustrated with the app and decided to write this review. Thank you!

- Changes to app

I hope what CrystalCafe wrote in their post was not correct. This breaks my heart, I really enjoyed this app, yeah, the guy who looks up things on BING just to past the time, instead of watching TV, and go to Google Earth to check places out (Google Maps does a really good job of giving details about places). Well, I will check out the latest updates and let ya know...

- Great but maps are REALLY old, not up to date

Google Earth is absolutely awesome and a really good way to see a new perspective of our planet but the maps are really old. I got rid of a playhouse in my backyard over 5 years ago and it’s still there on google earth. The local amusement park in my area is also really old on this app. It shows coasters that were fully removed and replaced still. Update it please!

- Totally Disappointing Support

For years I kept track of local changes to my neighborhoods in Florida, Alabama, Indiana and Michigan by using the timeline feature. Starting about 5 years ago that feature no longer was available and to make matters worse the satellite views were rarely updated. We were told (in a developer response) that the 2D imagery would most likely provide more recent views but it doesn’t in the areas I’m interested in. The old google earth was far superior to the current edition. Shame on you for getting people hooked and then leaving them limited to lesser capabilities.

- Liked the previous version

I DO NOT LIKE this new version. You can’t set and name a pin, and your gps location does not move with you in real time like the previous version. It seems that the only thing its good for now is looking around the world. I used the previous version driving the backroads, using my location to ensure I was on the mining claim I thought I was on. Now it doesn’t have the capability of following me in real time, making the app virtually useless to me now. 😤😤😤

- 3D

Almost everyone in the review are asking for more 3D buildings and I hugely agree I live in America and I want to see my native land in Asia but almost everything is not 3D except for more populated areas like some parts of China but no so much in southeast Asia like Thailand or Burma or Laos there just flat images which you also need to update on new areas and make the 3D better I hugely suggest this thank you 🙏

- Hate that I can’t see my elevation & long/lat of my moving location

I hate that unlike Apple’s compass app I cannot see in Google Earth my elevation & long/lat as I am moving. Apple’s compass app has been able to do this for years and Google Earth is way behind with this. This is a crucial feature that in my opinion is required for Androids and future Google Pixel watches. I would never consider switching without this feature in place... It’s been years and it’s still not here yet

- This is dope

This is a dope sight you can go anywhere in the world and it’s awesome so cool when you do street view you can see a real picture on the ground it super cool so ya you should get it you can see real buildings it can be animated perfectly with great details or when you do street view you see a real life picture just click on a blue spot and y’all will be on the ground. So this is a dope website

- Not worth the free download.

As a fisherman that travels from spot to spot I would love to be able to see the time/dates/year changes that the desktop has (80% of people have phones with them at all times and not a laptop with internet access on the road). It helps a lot to see when the pond or creek I’m fishing in was made and during which season the foliage changes and also a drop pin location of where you’ve been so you can name it and put info. This is just like google maps but in 3rd and doesn’t give directions. Waste of data to download it to be honest.

- Great work by google

Perhaps the only good thing google has produced, google earth offers a virtual exploration of the earth’s surface. Very easy to use. Being the geography nerd I am, I can use this to disprove my friends when they make false statements. The outstandingly fast loading time helps me do that while their mistake is still relevant in conversation. 5 stars well deserved.

- Good but blurry and buffers

I love this app but there’s a few problems. Whenever I zoom in it turns really blurry and buffers for too long. It’s also not really updated. Another thing is that I was trying to find my mom’s childhood home but it didn’t show up on the map. Sad .😢 But I still do suggest this app. There is still some good things about it. 👏👏👏 Update: I also just realized that some of these places don’t even have street view available.

- This takes forever to load and...

Hi, I love looking at different places with this and several times I have gon to where my house is in this and it hasn’t been updated since the old owners lived here. We have lived here fo 5 or 6 now so could you maybe update it? Also my biggest issue is when I am on this it takes forever to actually sees the places. If I wanted to look at a blurry picture then I would have downloaded an app for that. Please fix it!

- Awesome app! Suggestion:

I know this is a great app, BUT I think there should be a NIGHT version too. It can take a while if it can. I love maps especially this one because I can see the world in street view and in 3D and there should be a setting where you turn on night mode and the street view will show in the nighttime. Thanks for your support!

- Fix Location Updating

When I open the app it tells me my location, but it does not update automatically. It just sits there until I click “my location” every thing is so good about this new update except it the location not updating. Please fix it and make the blue dot update like apple maps Edit: just fixed it <3

- Not good... 🤮

Sorry, but there were MILLIONS of glitches. Personally, I probably have had the worst experience. Most of it is Google’s fault. 😤😫 The photos & everything are unrealistically realistic (Which I know it makes no sense), and it is just SO SLOW. But I have a fear of google earth. It sounds weird but if I zoom in or zoom out it makes me nervous and feel sick. Oh and also when you zoom out, the picture of the earth is somehow creepy... Please make the thing better quality for people who actually have it (I deleted it)

- Dark dark stuff

Well google earth is a cool app that shows you a globe like if you don’t already have one but..... there are some dark secrets not all are dark but it takes place in the earth in the app around the place there are hidden stuff there’s a hidden bird in Antarctica and a couple of Death Stars around the earth and even a weird looking alien thing but I just don’t know why the game developers want dark hidden secrets in the app but I just want to tell you about it

- Good detail, not up to date

So the map and detail is good, but I zoom on a building in my area that has a paved driveway. In google earth, it isn’t paved. On a particular weather app, it shows buildings with satellite imagery, and get this, the driveway is paved! So a software made for this kind of stuff isn’t as up to date as a weather app is. Also street view in my area hasn’t been updated for 6 years, getting really annoyed. Hopefully we can get this fixed soon.

- The good the bad and the ugly..

It’s good, for a source for entertainment, that is. Honestly it can be a perfect creeper’s app to finding people and kidnapping them, even though all faces are blurred. Some areas like the blacked out areas Jessii Vee covered scare me. Also, why do people never really witness Google Street cars??? Are they just ghosts? I’ve never witnessed one; and someone needs to update those photos.

- It’s fine

The app is really good but it should really be up to date with what everything looks like cause a lot of things have changed from what it seems to look like on this app and there should be an option to look at the places as they were actually there like the street view but you should be able to move where you are from somewhere else while still being in street view


So I love google earth to use just for fun..until I found that if you search Kiuva Beach, Fiji, to the right you can CLEAR AS DAY see a PLANE in the water!! And then I looked up Bermuda Triangle which is kinda on the other side of Earth, knowing that Amelia Earhart disappeared in the Bermuda Triangle and how it "teleports” you to the other side of the world is kinda freaky, you should DEFINITELY check it out! - Llama 🌈 *w*

- The only Google Earth feature that I ever use just plain old ain’t xxxx-ing there

Guess I should have read the reviews. I downloaded the app almost solely for the historic aerial pics. I kind of have it on my desktop computer, but it crashed around Xmas and I don’t know how I’m going to get it fixed. That’s with living in a very rural area and the world being basically shut down at the moment. Those old satellite photos were the only thing I ever used Earth for, so the app is just a slightly fancier “Google Maps” to me.

- Doesn’t load

Most stuff now doesn’t load. And most of the pictures and street views are super old. When I saw an update was happening I got exited. Then I realized it was just something stupid for 6 year olds to play with on the street view. I can’t even go into my city because most buildings and stuff either don’t even load or nothing is updated. I hope in the next updates you get new street views and fix your app so stuff loads.

- Why???!!!!!????!!!!

You know, for being such a huge corporation, you sure do like to hold onto our search history! It’s literally impossible to delete it! What’s the problem? Not enough Ph.D’S there anymore? What’s the fix? I don’t want my google earth search history to pop up every time I press your little magnifying glass! You own half of the world and even google space. Maybe let the CONSUMER have a little PRIVACY? It’s not too much to ask. It’s no wonder why Tucker Carlson wants to ban you. 2 stars because I’m a little nice at 3am.

- History buff

I read a lot of history books, mostly war. While reading I can go to those places and see them. I spent 25 month in Vietnam. I can return to the places there that I fought. I can see the changes that have happened since 1967. Thank you for this service so I can go back and visit mine

@BrendanPorath @the_woke_yolk AFAIK the desktop version of Google Earth still shows the old Murder Rock layout in the area, the phone-based version shows the current(ish) layout with the Fazio/Coore-Crenshaw/Tiger layouts

@PlanesTV @airtattoo I’ve just noticed there are 3x B2’s and a C17 in the Google Earth screen grab.


@_jeanwoof This is why google earth says “not for targeting purposes” in big letters 😜

Won’t be posting often but I think this is super important to read. Our earth is declining rapidly and we all need to be informed and do our part in making sure we don’t reach the tipping point.
