Google Inc. has added Street View to its maps feature for mobile browsers, enhancing the navigation service available to iPhone users who don’t have the tool built in to their handsets.
Users of Apple Inc.’s iPhone can get quick access to Street View, which offers panoramic images of locations, by saving a Web bookmark to the home screen of the phone, Mountain View, Calif.-based Google said on a blog post Thursday.
“Starting today, use Street View on your mobile browser to check out a new shop across town or get a feel for the ambiance at a restaurant before you arrive,” Google said.
