Owners of the iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad can now access the ocean layer after it was added to Google Earth recently.
Chole Albanesius of PCMAG is reporting in an article that after this update, owners of the devices can explore underwater landscapes and terrains.
Google wrote in a blog post “Dive below the ocean’s surface to explore underwater canyons, or travel to the ocean’s deepest point, the Mariana Trench. Once underwater, simply swipe the screen with two fingers to ‘look around.”
Curated by the Sylvia Earle Alliance, owners can view photos and videos from over one hundred contributors. There is support for the retina display found on the iPhone 4 and latest iPod Touch, making images “even sharper,” Google said.
To get access launch m.google.com/earth in your mobile browser. An Android version was released last month and can be found on the Android Market.
