What if you want to view a live map on Google? Yes, a real-time view of a location. In this blog post, we will guide you on how to do it.

Accessing Google Maps

The first step is, of course, to access Google Maps. You can either do this by typing ‘Google Maps’ into your search engine and clicking on the first result or directly by typing into your address bar.

Finding the location

Once on Google Maps, type the location you want to view in the search bar on the top left of the screen and hit the ‘Enter’ key. Google Maps will take you to the location.

Switching to Satellite view

On the bottom left of the screen, you will find an option that says ‘Satellite.’ Click on this to switch the map to satellite mode. This will give you a detailed view of the location from a top-down perspective.

Activating the Live View

After switching to satellite mode, you can enable live view. However, it should be noted that this feature is not available for all locations. Live view is usually available for major cities and popular places. To activate live view, on the bottom right of the screen, click on the ‘Pegman’ icon (the yellow icon) and select the area of the map where you want to enable live view. The areas where Street View is available are highlighted in blue.

Once you’ve selected an area, Google Maps will give you a real-time street view of the location, allowing you to explore the surroundings virtually.
