Google recently stopped support for Street View in versions of Google Earth older than 6.0. This means that Google Earth 5.1, 5.2, and older no longer access the Street View layer.

Google announced that with the most recent update to Google Earth (6.2), it finalized the transition to a new method of delivering Street View imagery in Google Earth and dropped the older method of delivery in older versions of Google Earth (anything before 6.0).

Download the latest Google Earth version to access the Street View imagery and other new features at related link below.

Note the new preview version of Google Maps had removed the Orange "pegman" icon used to activate Street View, which made many users report that Street View was broken. The "pegman" icon has been recently added back due to popular demand.
