Google Earth lets you orbit the world in 3D right on your Android device.

Google Earth is making the headlines again these days and the last time I blogged about it was way back in 2011 when Google made the app available on Android tablets. There has been updates since then, but nothing noteworthy. This week Google released a major update of the app and its something.

I haven't used it yet, but based on the change log, all I can say for now is that it's definitely worth a look. As Google pointed out, Google Earth is a "major upgrade with brand new features." See the change log below and travel the world without leaving your home couch.

* Choose your own adventure with Voyager
Experience interactive stories from around the world.
* Discover new places with Knowledge Cards
Flip through cards and learn about local landmarks.
* Orbit the world in 3D
Use the new 3D button or tilt the map with two fingers.
* Snap and share a Postcard
Capture snapshots of locations and share them with your friends.
* Feeling Lucky?
Roll the dice and see where the world takes you.

Head over to Google Play Store and download Google Earth.
