We didn’t notice this earlier on (probably because we haven’t heard anything about this up until today) but apparently there is a problem with Street View inside Google Maps that’s only been plaguing Android handsets. Apparently, the Street View options are reportedly glitching up and – in some cases – disappearing. Two people responded to the thread on Google Support reporting issues, but that’s it.
Today, Google’s updated their original post to state that they’ve narrowed down the problem and are working to correct it shortly. It doesn’t seem to be as widespread as other sites (hint: Gizmodo) might have you believe, but we’ll report on it anyway. Personally, I haven’t had the problem in the past few days that I’ve been needing to use Maps extensively (Street View does come in quite handy when you move to a new area). What about you?
[Note]: Yes, that is an actual shot of Google Maps’ Street View feature showing a dead deer on the side of the road. No, I cannot find a way to justify using roadkill by way of Street View as the article’s main image (yet it’s still strangely fitting, in a way).
