Get a front row seat to the 2014 World Cup Brazil with Google
If you're eager to watch the 2014 World Cup Brazil next week, you can now get a front row seat to enjoy the greatness via Google Maps.
More specifically, Google has updated its Maps application to bring the World Cup to you. If you can't physically attend the month-long tournament in Brazil, this may be the next best thing.
By using Google Street View, users will be able to enjoy a 360-degree view of every stadium that will host a World Cup match. Each location will also include a brief description to inform you of the seating capacity, past events, as well as the matches it will host for the World Cup.
And while you're at it, you may also want to check out some of Brazil's various landmarks and local sceneries, taking a virtual walk down the painted streets of Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo. You can also visit the Amazon rainforest or the Iguaçu National Park, all courtesy of Google.
"The world's biggest soccer tournament is here. Whether you're watching from the comfort of your couch or packing your bags for Brazil, Google Maps is your ticket for the games. To kick off the tournament, starting today you can explore all 12 stadiums and the iconic painted streets, one of Brazil's tournament traditions, in Street View - a digital legacy of the 2014 games for years to come," Google touts in a blog post on Thursday, June 5.
"Exploring the sights and culture of this year's football tournament has never been easier with Street View in Google Maps."
At the same time, this is all part of a larger effort to help World Cup attendees find their way through the streets of Brazil. According to the blog post, the app will offer users detailed transit directions in all 12 World Cup host cities. Moreover, Google is also offering indoor maps for airports, malls, as well as each of the 12 stadiums, so you never get lost. Drivers can also find the quickest, most convenient traffic route to their desired destination by using Waze, the traffic app Google bought last year.
How will you be attending the World Cup this year? In person or virtually, with Google on your arm?
