MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., April 23 (UPI) -- Google says the Street View feature of its Google Maps has moved into 50 countries, racking up more than 5 million miles of roadway.

Street View coverage has been expanded in Poland and Romania as well as "other locations around the world," Google announced.

Countries receiving updates include France, Italy, Poland, Romania, Russia, Singapore and Thailand.
