Regardless of how many pandemics, wars, and other scourges hit the Earth, our planet is still extremely beautiful and worth exploring. That’s where an app like Google Earth Pro comes in handy, as it was built for virtually exploring whole countries, cities, countrysides, buildings, and more throughout the world.
However, installing the program on a Chromebook can be tricky if you’re trying to do it for the first time. But it’s like riding the bicycle: once you get used to it, it will be like a walk in the park.
Installation on a Chromebook
The first thing you need to do is making sure that your device supports Linux apps via the Crostini project. After that, you’ll have to enable Linux apps and update the container for your device. And now comes the easier part: go to the Google Earth downloads page and get yourself the 64-bit .deb file for Linux. Open the Downloads folder from your Files App and double-click the Google Earth .deb file and your installation will start. After it’s finished, you can find the Google Earth app icon in your launcher.
That’s pretty much everything you need to know about how to install Google Earth Pro on a Chromebook. It sure is worth it since the app not only allows you to explore the Earth, but even stars as well. Taking a good look towards the vastness of the Cosmos can always make us realize how extremely vulnerable and small we truly are. There are about 200 billion stars in the galaxy, and there are trillions of other galaxies in the Universe with each of them having other hundreds of billions of stars. Google Earth offers us this wonderful experience of seeing even for a bit other regions of the Cosmos.
Google Earth was released in 2001 by the company you’re suspecting (Google), and it’s available for Windows, macOS, Linux, Android, iOS, and more.
