Recently, it was announced by Google that it was going to be removing both Google Play Store and Apple App Store’s standalone Street View app within the “coming weeks” that it will replace it with a standalone Street View app. Further, the app will also cease to be supported in March 2023, which is the end of its support lifecycle.

For those of you who are unfamiliar with the Street View app, it allows users to explore locations through first-person views on Google Maps, as well as share 360-degree images with the app so that it can be used in the app in a more comprehensive way.

Since the app was first released, it has become redundant in recent years due to the fact that it has the same identical features as the Google Maps app as well as features that can be found within the Google Maps app. Therefore, it makes complete sense for Google to replace Street View with a more integrated and more comprehensive feature within Google Maps as a way to better serve their users.
