Google launched a couple of amazing Google Maps features only in recent weeks, including AR navigation support that was implemented on Android and iPhone, as well as a smarter way to plan your trip. And Google has not finished adjusting its navigation application, since the company has finally brought to the mobile the only feature that was still missing in action.
At the moment, it is only available on Android, which is the natural home of Google Maps, of course, it is a layer of Street View. Street View is one of the best features of Google Maps for desktop computers, as it allows you to view the places you travel for the first time. And you can quickly move between Street View and the normal Maps view in the web version of the application, something that was not exactly possible in the mobile application.
A standalone Street View application is also available, but it is much more convenient to have it in one application.

As seen in the previous screenshots, through Android Police, the Street View layer is clearly visible, and it is very easy to switch between the default version and the Street View version of the map.
Press the layer, and the map in sight will immediately highlight in blue all the roads and areas where Google cameras have been used to take 360-degree snapshots. It's like the desktop experience, but you'll have to touch the location you want to inspect instead of dragging anything on the screen.
The function began to be implemented in Android, and will probably reach iPhone in the future.
