Google Maps has received an update that includes Immersive View for routes.

This Immersive View was first made available for routes in Amsterdam, Barcelona, Dublin, Florence, Las Vegas, London, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, Paris, San Francisco, San Jose, Seattle, Tokyo, and Venice for both Android and iOS smartphones.

To use this feature, customers must first seek cycling directions and then tap on the Immersive View preview to see their trip from start to finish in a spectacular, multidimensional view. Users can also use the time slider to plan when to leave based on useful information such as simulated traffic and weather conditions, and they may prepare for each turn if they are there with thorough, graphic turn-by-turn directions. This way, one can easily avoid riding in inclement weather or amid heavy traffic.

Immersive View for Places combines billions of street views and aerial photographs to give users a preview of a restaurant or monument before they visit. With the introduction of Photorealistic 3D Tiles on the Google Maps Platform this week, developers can now design their own immersive experiences.
