Google is shutting down its dedicated Street View app

You can add the standalone Street View app to Google’s growing cemetery of products. After decompiling the latest version of the application for Android, 9to5Google found closing notices that the company has yet to publish. In these alerts, the tech giant announces that the Street View app will no longer be available and support will end on March 21, 2023. Spokeswoman Madison Gouveia confirmed that The border that the app is really taking the ax. Gouveia also told the publication that Google will withdraw Street View from the app stores in the coming weeks.

Google announced it was turning Street View into its own app in 2015. Available for both Android and iOS, it lets you upload your 360 photos from your phone or 360 cameras. Last year, the company also introduced Photo Paths, which allows you to contribute a series of 2D photos of streets and places that haven’t been documented by a Street View car (or camel or sheep) in the past.

Street View will continue to be a key feature of Google Maps, so you can still explore virtually all the places the tech giant had documented with its cameras. You can also continue adding 360 photos within Maps and posting 360-degree videos using Street View Studio. How 9to5Google notes, however, there will no longer be a way to add photo paths after Google has completely closed the dedicated Street View app. However, previously submitted Photo Route images will continue to be viewable in Google Maps.
