Refreshed Google Street View stakes new territory

Help

Google Street View, the service that allows internet users to explore 3D views of locations across the globe on Google maps, has launched a refresh.

The revamped service fixes previous "black spots" and offers higher quality imagery, says Google.

Rory Cellan-Jones connected with Luc Vincent, who heads up the Street View project from California, using Google Hangout.

He asked him about ongoing issues surrounding privacy, and where the service will go next.
