You don’t have to build a machine to time travel. Now, Google Street View offers you a look back at the yesteryears. By clicking on the clock button while in street view, users have the option to select a year and view the surrounding area at that time. Currently, the feature provides visibility back until 2007.
- All users have to do is click on the clock button on the top left of the corner when you are on street view.
- Google, at the time, told Mirror Online that they were gathering historical imagery from past street view collections dating back to 2007 to create this digital time capsule of the world.
- The app is ideal for people travelling alone as it allows them to discover and connect with people who are going to the same places as you.
