Google Maps Rolls Out Split-Screen Street View for Android Users

To use the split-screen view, simply tap the Street View window when you've found the correct place in Google Maps, then tap the circular expand/condense button that will show up on the bottom right of the Street View.

You can also navigate by tapping on either the split screen view or on the map view.
