Google Earth for Android and iOS Updated With Custom Content Support [Updates]

google earth logo   Google Earth for Android and iOS Updated With Custom Content Support [Updates]The Google Earth team have released Google Earth 6.2 for Android and iOS devices, bringing long-awaited support for custom content in the form of .KLM files. While both versions still differ slightly in terms of features, the latest update allows both iOS and Android users to download custom maps and overlays and display them using the app.

There are already a large number of .KLM files available on the Internet and now when users access them from a mobile device the Google Earth app will automatically open and display the custom content. This can range from live earthquake maps to hiking trails or even coverage of the Tour de France.

Google has also added Google Earth Gallery support into this latest release, a resource that makes finding the custom content possible from within the app. The Android version now also includes enhanced sharing options via Google+, Gmail and other applications allowing users to quickly share a screenshot of their current view.
