Google is preparing to shut down its dedicated Street View app on Android, while keeping the feature in Google Maps.

About APK Insight: In this “APK Insight” post, we have unpacked the latest version of an app that Google has uploaded to the Play Store. When we decompile these files (called APK files, in the case of Android apps), we can see different lines of code within this hint in possible future features. Keep in mind that Google may or may not ship these features at all, and our interpretation of what they are may be incomplete. We will try to enable those who are about to finish, however, to show you what they would look like if they did charge. With that in mind, keep reading.


Google Street View is an easy way to get a 360-degree view of almost any given street on the planet, ideal for learning about your next travel destination or simply exploring the world from the comfort of your own home. Although the Google Maps app has long provided an easy way to go on Street View, there has also been a dedicated Street View app on Android and iOS.

This standalone app served two distinct groups of people – those who wanted to browse Street View in depth and those who wanted to contribute their own 360-degree photos. Given that the most popular Google Maps app has Street View support and Google offers a “Street View Studio” web app to shareholders, it should come as no surprise to learn that the company is now preparing to shut down the Street View app.

In the latest update, version 2.0.0.484371618, Google has brought back quite a few stop/off notifications for the Street View app. These notifications are not yet visible in the app today, but our team was able to enable them.

In the notice, Google confirmed that the Street View app was set to close on March 31, 2023, encouraging users to switch to Google Maps or Street View Studio.

Street View app will be terminated

The app will be discontinued and support will end on March 21, 2023.

To post your 360 video, switch to Street View Studio. To view Street View and add panoramic photos, use Google Maps.

However, one advantage is that he is Street View is completely turned off with the demise of the Street View app is Photo Tracks. First launched last year, Photo Paths was intended as a way to allow just about anyone with a smartphone to contribute simple 2D images of a road or path that hasn’t yet been documented by Street View. Unlike every other feature in the Street View app, there is no alternative to Photo Paths on the web app or Google Maps app.
