I've seen it too on a Google Italia Channel, but it has been deleted few minutes later.
so, no, Google Ocean will not be launched, but it will be a feature of Google Earth 5.

[Moved from "Google Ocean coming soon?" – Tony]

[...] ince Google Earth launched in 2006 ­millions of people have used its virtual globe to "travel" around the planet without leaving home, climbing a digital version of Mount Everest and even flying into space thanks to the website.

Now the internet company plans to take on one of the last bastions of the unknown: the depths of the ocean.

At a high-profile event in San Francisco, Google is expected to announce the addition of vast amounts of underwater imagery and seabed maps to the Google Earth project. [...]

Looks like the ocean photos have been added to Earth and Maps. No Earth update yet though

Does it mean we won't be able to see the surface of the ocean anymore ?
Funny things or lost people on wreckage ;-)

There's a bug i believe..
When you switch the language from English to something else, it does show you the option for downloading the 5th edition in the main page (earth.google.de/intl/de/index. ...), but when you go to the following page and change the language to anything besides English (US and UK) you can only download the 4.3 software.
earth.google.de/intl/de/downlo ...
earth.google.de/intl/fr/downlo ...

etc'

-Update-
Well, they fixed it for some languages, but the bug still repeats itself when you play with it a bit (like refresh the page, or go to the home page and try downloading it from there..)

How do you go into Ocean Mode? I do not understand that and can't find it anywhere.

Orea, after downloading and installing the latest version of Google Earth, run it and in the Layers pane, check the Ocean box. Now you can zoom into the ocean and go below water, and you'll find 3d terrain.

With version 5.0 and the Ocean box checked I still just bounce on the water surface, am I doing something else wrong?
