With Google Maps Globe Mode the search giant and ruler of the world has decided it’s time to round things up…
Google Maps users may notice something a bit different when they next zoom out – it’s no longer flat.
The new Google Maps Global Mode does away with the flat projection of Earth as you continue to zoom out. Instead it has been swapped it for a round 3D sphere.
Introducing Google Maps Global Mode
When zooming out fully in satellite mode there is also the option to explore other planets, as well as moons, in a similar fashion to Google Maps counterpart Google Earth.
