Google Street View shares football stadiums in Qatar with the world

Today, Tuesday, Google announced the launch of Google Street View in Qatar, where the 2022 FIFA World Cup is taking place.

The American technology giant said in a statement that the new group displays the outer perimeter of four football stadiums, which are Lusail Stadium, Al Bayt Stadium, Khalifa International Stadium, and Education City Stadium.

Google added that the Virtual Street View feature aims to improve the experience of visitors in Qatar and their attempt to reach these stadiums, especially during the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022, and it provides fans of this sport with an opportunity to discover the stadiums from outside and the surrounding equipment.

Individuals from all over the world can view these images by clicking on the yellow Street View feature on Google Maps.

Google said that the car dedicated to this feature is equipped with a set of cameras that shoot with a 360-degree panoramic view, and it is now in Qatar to take panoramic pictures of more than 90 places, as it will be added to Google Maps the next year.
