I was browsing Google Maps a little earlier to try and view a 3D map in more detail, but was surprised to find it didn't seem possible anymore... However, it turns out it's just very hidden away. It's an amazing feature, so I don't know why they've made it so difficult.

If anyone else wants to view 3D Google Maps again, go to the usual website: https://www.google.com/maps/

Then click the "layers" button in the bottom right corner and select "more":

Now tick the "globe view" box

Now you'll get the 3D view again, where you can hold down shift + click to rotate the camera angle.

That is brilliant @Ian! Thank you for the heads-up. I was a bit surprised by the changes, because I am often browsing Google maps. :thumb:

Well, I didn't know that existed. But I do now. :thumb:
