Google Street View now available from mobile browsers

Google has rolled out a major update on their Google Maps mobile web app.

Users can now access street view imagery right from the mobile browser on their smartphone.

As usual, this feature is optimized for webkit based browsers so might not work on Internet Explorer on Windows Phone devices.

Google was expected to roll out this functionality for the users on Apple iOS 6 based devices (including iPhone 5) which no longer have the Google Maps mobile app.

Google said:

To make Google Maps even more comprehensive, accurate and useful, today we’re making Street View available on mobile browsers. With access to Street View on your phone, you can use panoramic, street-level imagery to explore and navigate the places around you, even on the go.
