Regular Google Street View Live for France

France has Google Street View enabled now. There already were panorama photos from the Tour de France route, but now there are regular pictures, from Paris, Lyon, Toulouse, Marseille and Nice (edit: and Lille. Thanks Luka!). Four zoom levels are available, and as usual for recent Street View imagery, Google tries to blur faces and license plates to protect privacy.

Other countries which already have Street View are Australia, Japan and the US. Google’s camera-equipped cars are also cruising around other places in the world, so different new countries may be added over time.

[Thanks Hebbet!]
