Have you ever wanted to find your house or other places without walking down there in flesh? Well, there is an easy and fast way - track it on Google Street View. And how to get a view of a specific location on Google Street View? I would recommend you use InstantStreetView.com.

Instant Street View is a third-party website that helps you find any location easily. Once you type an address in the search box, this website will show you that location on Google Street View instantly. What's more, you can operate this on your Android smartphone or iPhone. All you need is a web browser and network connection. Therefore, if you are out somewhere, you can use it to navigate and guide you wherever you want to go.

 

It is smart and gives instant response. If you type in the name or address of one location, this site will search for the matching location automatically and then show you in no time, even before you complete the full location address composing. If you type in something too vague, it will give you a dropdown list of options as suggested locations that match what you are looking for.

 

In addition to Instant Street View, you have other options that you can use to find your target location.

 

Find Location on ShowMyStreet.com

ShowMyStreet.com is another popular site and it is quite similarly to Instant Street View. It also tries to guess the location you're searching for while you are typing it in. The only difference is that it won't give you any auto-complete dropdown suggestion to click on.

Find Location via Google Maps

If you want to get an instant view of a specific location, the Instant Street View site is your ideal choice. Yet I guess you are more familiar and comfortable with Google Maps. Therefore, if your target location has been photographed by the Street View team, then you can easily switch to Google Street View. And here is how:

1 Type in google.com/maps in the address bar in your web browser, press Enter or click on the Go button, and you will be able to access Google Maps.

 

2 Type a place or address into the search field on Google Maps and then look for the little yellow Pegman icon in the bottom right corner (shaped like a little person).

Note: If you can't see a yellow Pegman, then that means Street View is not available for that location.

 

3 Once you click the Pegman, you will see a pop-up box on the left featuring Street View imagery. Click on it to view it in fullscreen so you can move around and start exploring. The address you're looking at should appear on the left along with the date the imagery was last updated and a back button to go back to Maps.

 

 

How to Use Google Street View on Mobile

Don't mix them up and please note that the Google Maps app is not the same as the Google Street View app. If you are using an Android device, you can download the official Google Street View app from Google Play

 

And if you are using an iOS device, you have two options:

(1) Street View used to be built into the Google Maps app

(2) There's a separate iOS Google Street View app you can use now.

 

Once you've downloaded the app (and maybe also signed into your Google account), you can plug an address into the top search bar and then use the map to drag "Pegman" (the little person icon). The 360 imagery closest to him will appear below. Click on the imagery below to see it in full screen and use the arrows to navigate around the area.

 

Another cool feature of the Google Street View app is that you have the ability to capture your own panoramic imagery using your device's camera and publish it to Google Maps. In this way, you can help users see more of what they want to see in those locations.
