Do I have to pay for Google Earth Pro?

Google Earth Pro is free to use, no matter if you download it as an app or use it as a web service. Google used to charge an annual fee for Google Earth Pro but that is no longer the case.

Can I see my house from Google Earth?

Yes, you can. If you don't want to manually look for it by zooming in, you can type in your home address in the upper left search box and Google Earth will fly to your home.

Which is better: Google Earth or Google Maps?

If you need street navigation and turn by turn directions, Google Maps is the better choice. If you're looking to explore places from a bird's eye view, then you should download Google Earth. Both services share map information from the same source, but which is better will depend on the use you plan to give them.

Is Google Earth live?

Google Earth updates imagery every month, but frequency will depend on the location. Most shots are anywhere from a few weeks to 2-3 years old, in other words, none of it is real time. On the Google Earth Pro client you can go back in time and see satellite images for the present or years prior.
