Google Earth on Android expanded to cover the thing that makes up the majority of the Earth

Google has just released an update for its Google Earth application on Android handsets, allowing users to view a new layer that shows off deep scans of the ocean.

The new Ocean layer will automatically be switched on after users go into the new version of Google Earth for Android, which now stands at version 1.1.

Users can literally dive to the bottom of the ocean floor without leaving their living room thanks to the expansive collection of visual data Google has acquired over the years. It also integrates Wikipedia for users to see encyclopedic entries about important parts of the globe's oceanic coverage.

Additional, user-submitted graphics of the massive oceans are also integrated into the new app, which just keeps on getting cooler and cooler.

The new version of Android's Google Earth is available to anyone running Android 2.1 or 2.2.
