"With the release of this feature, you can escape the hustle and bustle of life on land and discover the marine world using Google Earth on your mobile device. For example, check out the landscape and terrain in Monterery Bay Canyon, which is larger than the Grand Canyon, by zooming in on Google Earth below the ocean surface just off the coast. Once underwater, you can use the 'look around' button to tilt the view and see the extent of this great undersea canyon."
The latest release of Google Earth for Android also adds the "Explore the Ocean" layer with submissions by more than 100 partners such as National Geographic, the National Geographic and Atmospheric Administration and the International Union for Conservation of Nature, as well as the Mission Blue Foundation.
According to the Lat Long blog, there are also new features available for Android 2.2. users, such as the ability to play Flash videos "right in the balloon" and use two fingers to navigate the virtual replica of the Earth.
Google Earth for Android 1.1 is available for download in the Android marketplace.
