Google Street View is back in India!!


Google launched the Street View feature in India in 2011, but in 2016, it was banned by the government due to security reasons. Few reports claimed that terrorists used the Street View feature to plan the 26/11 Mumbai attack. Therefore the feature was banned. The company proposed an advised plan in 2018, but that was rejected too.

This time, Google’s Street View feature rides on partnerships with local organizations like Genesys international (mapping solutions), and IT giant Tech Mahindra.

Starting today, this feature will be available in cities like : Delhi, Mumbai, Bengaluru, Chennai, Nashik, Vadodara, Ahmednagar, and Amritsar. The coalition has planned to add 50 more cities by the end of 2022.

Miriam Karthika Daniel, VP — Google maps experiences has said: “We believe the launch of Street View in India will be instrumental in delivering a more helpful user experience, from virtually visiting locations to getting a better sense of local businesses and establishments.”
