Win 8 Map App

I have been playing around with the People App that links to the Map App on the Metro tiles so that if you have an address in People it can automatically take you to the Map to show you either on in map view or aerial view where the person lives. What I haven't been able to do is to view the location in Street View (as you can in Google Maps". Does anyone know if this feature is available? I have a hunch that they are Bing Maps and that Street View does not exist but I would like a second opinion.

The Map app is Bing Maps. To get street view you need G Maps app. Go to start page, search, type G Maps in the search box and select the store app lower down. That should get you to the G Maps installation.

OK and if I do that can I make the People app automatically link to that instead of using Bing maps?
