New version chashes during startup. The progress indicator makes about two full loops and I'm back at my desktop. Tested April 27, 2017 release. Uninstalled back to stock version (v8). UPDATE: I also tried the new version on my RCA 11 inch tablet. It doesn't crash it just never loads the app. The progress indicator just spins until I get tried of it. Uninstalled from both my NextBook Areas 11a, and RCA 11 inch tablets. v220.127.116.11 is just plain buggy!!!
Well, I used to love this App more but ever since the update there is no pictures to see that people have taken because most places I'll never get too and I used to use the pictures that people took as an idea for places I'd like to go to but without those it's kind of pointless because a lot of things are hazy or don't focus in and you can't get down to street view on anything other than in a big city it seems like. More than anything please bring back the pictures that people would take after being there and try to make it more current. I'm thinking about uninstalling it because my Google Maps seems to do better than Google Earth anymore except I still don't have any pictures to look at
It's interesting to see a weird computer game version of my house; unfortunately, it's not very useful. I just want to assess my garden and look at the condition of my roof, but it's all just weird smudgy polygons. The imagery without the 3D is grainy and low quality, much worse than it used to be (but they are more recent than the 3D view). The settings aren't very obvious to adjust (automatically tilting etc was annoying). Google Maps seems to do all the same things. This is "fun", but I would prefer an older version of Google Earth, when it used to be more practical.
After the most recent update I cannot even open the app on a brand new Samsung Galaxy S8. The splash screen just sits there with the blue loading wheel spinning indefinitely. Tried restarting phone, uninstalling and reinstalling and updating the phone all to no avail. Please fix this as I used to use the app all the time and loved it. Quite disappointing.
Hi team Google, I want to thank you for all your contribution in my life as well as everyone's life. Looking the world in 3D is such a nice feature but when it comes to see your own house it upsets me a little bit, sorry to say that but it would be great if I can see me country, state, city, and my own house in 3D, so please can you do that. Thank you 😍
What gives?!? I downloaded/installed the newest version in my new phone (LG G5), & it wouldn't load when I tried to start it up. I go back to the old phone (HTC ONE M8), & the older version works. I install this newest version in the HTC, & now it won't load. Same failure with this new version across 2 different devices! That sucks pretty badly!!
