Google has started sending out invitations to an event itâ€™s holding on April 18, where itâ€™ll unveil â€œthe new Google Earth.â€ Itâ€™s unclear what exactly the firm has up its sleeve, but weâ€™re expecting to see a major redesign of the software withÂ virtual reality at the center.
But how will it implement virtual reality? We have a feeling the experience will beÂ similar to Google Earth VR, which enables users to explore a handful of destinations â€” including the Amazon River, Grand Canyon and Swiss AlpsÂ â€” using an HTC Vive.
Whatever the case may be, the announcementÂ should be pretty exciting seeing asÂ Google is dedicating an entire event to it. Fortunately, we donâ€™t have to wait too long to find out more, as the conference will take place next Tuesday.
