But Google hasn’t forgotten about it, and just sent out invites to the press for an event where it will unveil “the new Google Earth”. It will be held on April 18, just four days before Earth Day on the 22nd

As for what this new experience will look like, Google isn’t providing any hints. Still, I’m guessing it will be a major redesign of the software given Google is devoting a whole event to it.

Earth has traditionally been the more powerful alternative to Google Maps, allowing you to do things like use a flight simulator or view the effects of global warming over time, so expect some cool new features to give you a reason to download it over Maps. I wouldn’t be surprised to see additional VR news too, following Google Earth VR‘s announcement in November.

Google Maps brings your destination history to iOS .
As a competitor to Apple Maps, Google Maps does a pretty great job on iOS. You can get to your timeline pretty easily, both from the cards of places you've been as well as through the Google Maps menu. The place cards will now show you the dates of your previous visits, though this information is only visible to you. You can also get a monthly email from Google Maps, reminding you of all the cool places you've been. Of course, if you only hit the convenience store, fast food joints and the laundromat, this feature might be less than useful. If so, you can toggle it off in preferences.
