I'm unable to switch to the street view when using the Google maps on my android phone. I updated the Google maps to the latest version and also the street view but unable still though. I turned off the satellite view and tried but the street view was still disable. I tried to finding informative videos regarding this and some forums but they didn't helped me. I would really appreciated if any one help me about this.

  • To make absolutely sure that street view is disabled because of your hardware, try to access street view on a street in a major city. There are some streets where street view hasn't been captured. These are usually back streets in small towns.

Most probably, Street View imagery is not available for your location (yet).

  • Cross check the web version with any PC for the same location that doesn't work on your phone
  • Check a well-supported Street View location such as Google HQ on your phone

It may take a couple of second for the Street View button to become enabled. Just leave the button for up to half a minute?

  • I leaved it at least for 1 minute but the button still disabled. :(

Check the tables of supported countries on Wikipedia. Most likely, Street View is not yet available where you live.

    That is not an answer by referring to a linky to wikipedia - suggest you re-edit your answer!
