How to Operate Immersive View on Google Maps?

Open Google Maps and look for a well-known structure, such as Big Ben in London or St. Patrick’s Cathedral in Dublin, to see if it exists. When supported landmarks are nearby, a card with the words “Immersive View” will appear on the left. Tap it to begin your exploration. Tap on Time & Weather and move the bottom slider to the left or right to view how the area appears during various times of day or weather.   We may plan by using the time slider to check the weather and how busy it will be at various times of the day.

Keeping track of all the locations We want to see throughout our vacation is one of the most challenging aspects of planning, especially if we’re travelling to different cities.  

How to Implement Recent Highlights on Your Desktop

Google created recent on desktop specifically to assist with that. When we launch maps, it automatically groups the locations we have researched into a useful highlight on the left side of our screen. We’ll now Will have to save locations in our recent highlights even after we close our Google maps window, so we can take a break from planning and return to it later without ever losing your progress, thanks to new upgrades that Will be made available internationally next month. We can delete previously visited locations and arrange numerous journeys. We can delete locations we’ve visited, schedule multiple trips simultaneously, and share a list of locations with our travel partner to receive their opinion. Once we’ve decided on our destination, then we’ll have to select three or more locations, and click “directions,” and Google maps Will specifically design an exclusive route that stops at each location we’ve specified and store it to our recent.
