Understand the Street View app deprecation

When will the Street View app be discontinued?

The Street View app is no longer available on Google Play and the App Store. If you already have the app on your mobile device, you can use it until March 2023. 

How else can I manage my published imagery?

If you delete the app from your mobile device, you won’t be able to download it again. You’ll continue to have access to all imagery you have published to Google Maps through other platforms.

  • To view or delete any of your Photo Spheres, visit ‘Your contributions’ page on Google Maps.
  • To view or delete any of your street-level collections or Photo Paths, visit Street View Studio.

How can I continue to publish imagery without the Street View app?

Although the app is going away, we have ensured that all your favorite features aren’t, and have been integrated into other platforms.

  • To capture Photo Spheres, use a compatible 360 camera, or if you prefer using only your mobile device, choose from a variety of 360 photo apps available on Google Play and the App Store.
  • To publish Photo Spheres to a place, use the Google Maps app on your mobile device, the desktop version of Google Maps on your computer, or a 3rd party publishing tool. For a list of recommended publishing tools, see the Street View website.
  • То create connections between Photo Spheres, use a 3rd party publishing tool. 
  • To capture and publish street-level collections, use a compatible 360 camera and import the resulting files into our new Street View Studio platform, available on both desktop and mobile. 

Will I still be able to publish Photo Paths?

Capturing 180-degree videos to create Photo Paths for Street View was an experimental feature we introduced in 2019. The functionality will be deprecated permanently.
