What happened to Google Street View?
The short answer is that Google Street View is still available, but it has been significantly reduced in scope.
The long answer is that Google Street View was first launched in 2007 as a way to provide street-level imagery of select cities around the world. The service quickly expanded to cover more cities, and eventually became available in over 60 countries. However, in recent years Google has been forced to scale back the service due to privacy concerns. In particular, Google has been accused of collecting personal data (such as Wi-Fi passwords and emails) from unsecured networks, and of taking photos of people without their consent. As a result, Google has been fined by various governments and has had to remove Street View images from certain locations. In addition, many countries have blocked Google Street View entirely. As a result, the service is now only available in a handful of countries.
