Winchester Jim on 8/16/2017
Erased my places saved in previous version and Can't save favorite places to updated version.
New isn't always better
Andrew :P on 8/16/2017
Scrolling isn't smooth anymore and now it's hard to move around easily.
Go Halos on 8/16/2017
Took a great app and ruined it. The 3D mode looks cheap and the absence of Wikipedia reason enough to delete this app. It's not hard to spot the paid positive reviews either. You're not fooling anyone Google. Bring the old version back.
"Alpha" on 8/15/2017
Amazing app, see everything thing in the world with this free app, and I saw the google street view car today, when is the 2017 app update going to come? Anyways great app, I recommend it
Worst version ever
directvboy on 8/15/2017
Why does Google have to only let you view borders so far
FernandoHilbert on 8/14/2017
Poor update.
Needs updating
ousue on 8/14/2017
Views are old, from a few years ago and the resolution is really bad if you try to zoom in. If these issues were fixed, I'd rate it a 5 star.
No navigate to pushpins that are uploaded.
Rurufufur heir juries on 8/14/2017
Please put a navigate option on pushpins uploaded from emails would really help with navigation.
Markslrk23 on 8/14/2017
Please give us back the old google earth. This new update is a huge downgrade!
Ruined by newest update
Moon man did nothing wrong on 8/14/2017
Huge loss of functionality with newest update. No more panoramio photos, no more Wikipedia, and very pixelated when zoomed in.
Google would you please inform us
xchange12 on 8/14/2017
On what is going on with the latest release. Talk to us! Why did you update a good release with crappy code? The opening globe is not smooth any more. Choppy and buggy almost like it wants to crash. Needs to be checked out. This is on iPhone 7 and iPad 10.5 and desktop. This is all with fresh install. Was perfect on the first release on Thursday. Please look into it. I am obviously not the only one having these issues Thanks
Horrible after the recent update
B P H on 8/14/2017
Please Google.... go back to the quality you had before. The images are not as clear, the app is harder to navigate, nothing runs as smooth. Please bring back the old google earth.
Can't print!!
tlpend on 8/14/2017
Can't print maps from iPad/iPhone now.
Awful Update
MicroSurvey on 8/14/2017
Google can take something great and completely ruin it. Good job, morons.
PLEASE add a way to turn off 3D models
KCR224 on 8/13/2017
I like the idea of 3D models but theyre extremely blirry and I just want to see the image that is not in 3D. This update ruined the app and needs to be fixed
Not as good as I would like...
Lopezboys16 on 8/13/2017
The computer version seems like a while other league compared to this. Especially when you zoom out and see the lovely image of the whole earth with clouds. This version has the same zoom out look as the old version and doesn't seem like that big of a visual overhaul.
What's up
wayne;1950 on 8/13/2017
Not a up grade but a definite gown grade very disappoinate.
Very unhappy
JX567abc on 8/13/2017
I never would have upgraded if I knew I would lose access to timeline. All the fancy does not make up for the deficits.
Useless app from a fascist and bigoted company
TripleR on 8/13/2017
The quality has gone downhill and it's pretty slow. Google is a radical far left company very set in their fascist and bigoted ways.
The app was perfect before
Mom Just Got Real on 8/13/2017
What the heck happened to panoramio and Wikipedia and the old resolution. Being able to scroll around smoothly, move your fingers to go to 3D and being able to put the orange man down on any landscape without there needing to be street view, and being able to walk around with him to explore landscapes in detail. Overall I'm not impressed with this update at all. It's basiccly google maps taking a step back. Bring back the old please!!! The update basically forcées you to get used to something new, N/S button and he man are opposite to each other, for 3D u swipe in opposite direction. Ah yes, and the window popping up in different places then before and not taking up the whole page. This is honestly dissapointing. I just am disappointed st this
Shay1718 on 8/12/2017
Where is Urdu language ?
nomi2533 on 8/12/2017
*Urdu* is one of the largest speaking language too kindly add it. I hope you will have soon language update as requested thanks
New and unimproved
Apicketfence on 8/12/2017
BOOO. Get close to the ground it crashes. Super Mario 64 had better 3D graphics. Liked looking at panorama photos...not any more. This update is embarrassing. Whoever was in charge of it should be reprimanded. Fix It Fix It Fix It Fix It!!!
Riz0926 on 8/12/2017
What were they thinking? No more Wikipedia links, and the interface is no longer user friendly. Google fixed something that wasn't broken.
Arestio on 8/12/2017
The Galaxy was so dark,I like the old one,I don't feel good it's like a we so alone lonely in the Universe even it's just a computer 3D image still our mind heart and everything it's only one god are there,Please give some little brightness around the universe or else this is so bad who build it.
Last update doesn't work.
RodLMan7811 on 8/12/2017
I have been using Google Earth but now with the latest update all I get is a black screen. The first time it happened I deleted and downloaded the previous version and it worked fine. But then it auto-updated and now only the new version is available. Google Maps works fine but Earth only gives me a black screen. P.S. I tried it again after a few days but no go. Must be a bug somewhere.
The new update ruined everything
NY Herper on 8/12/2017
All of my purposed for using Google Earth required viewing county lines, and I have no idea of why these idiots got rid of it, but since the new update, the application is now useless to me. To add to that, ground level view was removed; why the f*ck did they remove one of the most useful features of the app?!?! Do they think that this is f*cking cute?!?! All of Google should be castrated, to avoid their genetics from spreading. F*ck...
No way to exit street view now without exiting and starting all over
Civdiv99 on 8/12/2017
What happened to labels and things? Why do an upgrade that removes features and controls? Once in street view, you are stuck there. No way I could find to go back to overhead view.
Gps settings
Brad422 on 8/12/2017
Can't change the display like before. Everything else doesn't really matter to me.
Hate the new version
Bobj876 on 8/12/2017
I used Google Earth probably twice a day at least. A primary use was to look for restaurants both at home and when traveling. The old version would let you go to the restaurant's web page and view the menu. Finding a restaurant without being able to view the menu and ratings is worthless. Google made a very useful app worthless.
Wish I didn't update
mrshazbot on 8/12/2017
So many of the ways to explore the world are gone. No more viewing photos of places you want to explore, Wikipedia icons seems to be gone, roads and locations are mostly invisible. I would like to roll back to the old version. So sad. On the plus side the performance is better but not worth the update.
Would give it zero stars if I could!
Jen12291980 on 8/12/2017
The old version was good, I liked that I could place the icon of the person to go straight down in front of a building on a street and I could see it. Now, with this app it only lets you highlight certain roads that aren't even near certain places or buildings you are looking at. The view is awful, it lies so flat and the areas sometimes just look like piles of dirt. Bring back the old version, this version is awful. If it stays like this I will have no use for it and probably get rid of it. The whole point of being able to type the address in the search is so you can see it directly on satellite not look at highlighted nearby roads by that address!
VentureJim on 8/12/2017
Google earth was my favorite app. Please let me have it back. The new version is terrible. A fake earth. I hate what you have done.
Mojaveking on 8/12/2017
Nuff said.
No ability to view photos = Useless App
Joshh1280 on 8/12/2017
Very disappointed to see the ability to view photos was removed. Without that, I have little use for this app.
Not a fan
Yup kin on 8/11/2017
Too big. Just a waist of storage and space. There are better options.
Ghtrsy on 8/11/2017
Drop the fake 3D
scafire_jesse on 8/11/2017
Used to be great, but if there is a way to disable the poor quality 3D buildings and trees I haven't found it. It's really more of a toy now than the useful travel tool it used to be, although the easy import of kml files is nice.
Newest update missed the boat big-time!
Game nut666 on 8/11/2017
The newest update no longer shows street names!! Awful! The street level photos are much better, but you can't "walk" through a neighborhood without getting lost because the street names don't show. Please FIX IT!

LFCode on 8/10/2017
Hmmmm...Well, I think It's really good...
Where is Panoramio,or business info?
WTF2me on 8/10/2017
I did like the new google earth app.....but I can't use it like I use to!the usefulness is gone. I would use the hotel icons to search for information of that hotel,No More! I click on it now and all it shows is a useless picture.i would click on the Panoramio pics to see pics from all over the world,No More!there are NO more Panoramio pics.Restaurant icons were also full of information of the property,No More!useless picture again,and many other useful things that are gone!.So the new google earth app is crisp and performs at a cleaner and faster rate,but only at the cost of giving us half the information it used to give us. How can I get rid of this 3D set up!!! Come on Google! All the highly talented people you have working on this update? And this is what you all came up with..... I agree with the many negative reviews on this new update. I hope this gets updated soon? And bring back all the features that true google earth fans love.
What happened to the panoramino pictures?
-/:;()d)(::/- on 8/10/2017
I'm so disappointed with this new update, I used to look at the panaramino pictures to see places where I would want to go, now nothing to guide me and no wikepedia for infos on out of the way places... plus the resolution looks terrible! Bring back the old version!!
iOS 11 Support
Jacob Sawyer on 8/10/2017
Haven't used this app much but it's much better and more intriguing than the 2013 version. Love the dice icon and the ability to drop the Street View icon from a high position. Best of all, though, it's nice how the app is now compatible with iOS 11
What happened, Awful Images
Chase2254 on 8/10/2017
New version is awful, can't even see anything. Everything is blotchy and blurry
Great App, Except Poor Quality Up Close
Jellisquared on 8/10/2017
JohnnyisAwesome on 8/10/2017
YES! You finally upgraded it! Now it actually works and it's better than it was before! Good job
Salamwaddah on 8/9/2017
Won't give you 5 stars until you 3D Dubai... the whole city is flat :(
