That’s it! Your selection will now be constantly monitored, and you will be alerted when the area’s aerial imagery gets updated by Google.

View, Unsubscribe or Delete email notifications

You can view all your subscribtions by going to the app’s dashboard. On the page you can also know the last time a notification was sent.

To temporarily stop email notification for a particular point, just click on the Unsubscribe link next to the point. If you would like to remove the point entirely from your dashboard, just click Delete. Do note that to delete a point you have to unsubscribe it first.

Google does not provide a specific timeline on when an area gets updated on Google Earth and Google Map, so this is a great way to know first hand when the area of your interest is updated. Visit the following link to select and subscribe to a location now.
