As expected Google has today unveiled their new Google Earth service, which has received a huge update and now provides interactive stories from around the world in a new feature called Voyager.

The exploration app, which enables users to explore the planet thanks to satellite imagery captured by the technology giant has introduced several new features, including Voyager, a new series of guided tours of different parts of Earth.

The redesign also makes Google Earth, which has already seen more than 2 billion downloads in its lifetime, more accessible than ever. According to Google, it will become available for iOS and other browsers in the near future.
