Does anyone think we can get Google to fix GE7 with this?

Google has this now
Google Support Will Use Hangouts

Maybe they need this for GE7 or even GE8 when it comes out?

You mean Google Earth ver 7 by GE7 ?
They seem offer this service only for paid services like “AdWords” according to your link.

OOp my mistake yes Google Earth ver 7 or even ver 8 which I’m sure they’re working on.

Better install “Google Earth” on 32 bit OS as when i tried to install it on my 64 bit OS it wanted to install lot of lot of 32 bit packages.
I had read somewhere that “marble” is good OSS alternative
