Voyager is a Google Earth Web feature launched in 2017. It provides a showcase of digital map-based interactive stories selected by Google. These focus on themes such as nature, culture, and travel. Some stories are designed as learning games. Other stories are grouped together and built to highlight particular kinds of Google Earth data such as layers found in the Google Earth Pro desktop version (3D imagery, time lapse imagery, 360 video, historical maps, etc.) and Street View imagery found in Google Maps.
To access Voyager, go to Google Earth Web. You do not need to be logged in to a Google account in order to access and view Voyager stories. Voyager works best when viewed using the Google Chrome browser.
In the left-hand sidebar menu, click on the Voyager icon, which looks like a ship steering wheel.
From the Voyager view, select from a list of pre-defined story categories to view all Voyager stories in that category group. Unfortunately, these Voyager collections are not searchable.
Google-selected Voyager stories are available to view and interact with by anyone. You do not need to have or be logged in with a Google account to view these, but the stories work best when viewed using Google Chrome.
After selecting a Voyager story by double clicking on it from the Voyager showcase library, you usually need to launch the interactive story by clicking on some type of start button from the home page for that story. In the example screenshot below, that start button is the blue "Explore" button.
Some of the stories on Voyager are multi-part stories, all of which are listed and linked to on the main story home page like chapters in the story. You need to select the chapter you want to view and launch it by double clicking on the chapter title and thumbnail image, like in the example screenshot below.
Google Earth Web flies you over to the mapped location of the first segment of a Voyager story. Look for the pagination arrows in the bottom right corner of the web page to advance through the rest of the story, or to backup to an earlier part of the story.
