Google Earth for Android has been updated with some nice interface tweaks and support for Street View.

While the main Maps app has had Street View support for a long time, Google Earth offers a far more comprehensive data set, with more of an exploration slant and less focus on directions. Its 3D Maps are considered some of the most accurate in the world, and it’s always great fun seeing how close you can get to your favourite landmarks around the world. The addition of Street View allows users to get even closer — floating down the road — in many major cities.

Google Earth for Android now has a left-side navigation menu to quickly toggle various map layers. It’s a great update to an under-utilized tool.
