The current version of Google Earth for Android has now been around for seven months; so 1.1 update was long overdue. This is a major update, with the biggest feature being underwater bathymetry – this is the same feature that was made available on Google Earth 5 for desktop.
GEarthBlog makes a point that this is the first time that underwater bathymetry has been available for a smartphone. Another cool feature is “Explore the Ocean” layer; this allows people to share not only their photos but stories of the seas as well.
Some of the other new features include: Move to SD and Two-finger “look around” mode, much like what iPhone users currently have. For further details on these new features visit Google Lat Long Blog.
