Google Street View Now Live in Toronto!
We've been waiting for it for a long time for this in Canada. Since back in April, the Google Street View camera cars were seen in and around the GTA, and speculation that the new visual feature would be implemented "soon" remained alive and well. But it's been so long that most of us forgot about it. Until today!
And there are some hilarious moments captured.
To try it:
First go to Toronto on Google Maps, and then drag the little yellow
man human icon onto the map. Oh, and be sure to try it in full screen (there's an expand icon at the top right of the street view screen). Looks great!
Have fun exploring, and let us know if you find anything interesting by posting links and/or commenting below! Well post sceencaps too.
