Google Earth adds YouTube videos to application

Google Earth has started to integrate YouTube
videos on their hugely popular application. Users will be able to upload their videos from their holidays and visits
to renowned or not so renowned locations.

Rebecca Wettermann, the Vice President of Research
at Nucleus Research said that it would be a good opportunity to bring users
closer to historic sites all around the world. For example, users could look at Stonehenge and find videos of the stone
circle that other visitors have uploaded.

The internet giant added that "The integration
of YouTube functionality into Google Earth offers a new way to experience
destinations as seen through the eyes of YouTube users who have visited them,
enabling people to watch, hear and feel what’s happening in locations they may
never have otherwise visited."

So to try the new features for yourself, simply
click on the Featured Content folder in the latest version of Google Earth, and
then on YouTube. The YouTube logo will pop up all around the globe and by
hovering your mouse over the icons you will be able to see the title of the
linked videos.
