Google is developing a new version of Google Earth for android.
it has been rumored around the web that the new version should be abel to run kmz files.
but of course .... just a rumor so far.

Hi,

You cannot open KML/KMZ files on Earth for Android at this time.  However, we know this is a frequently requested feature, and this is something we hope to support in the future.

Peter, It has been over a year since you suggested that we may be able to  open kmz files on our droids.  When can we expect that feature?

Simple:
Store the kml file on any webserver available.
Open the file (url. Http://xxx.xx/xxx.kml) via browser or gmap search.
That's it.

Soapfish, thanks for your answer.  My KMZ file won't open, but when I try to open a KML placemark file, it will automatically bring up Google Earth, but won't find the location, it only shows my current location...

Doesn't work with this public dataset: http://earthquake.usgs.gov/hazards/qfaults/KML/Historic.kmz

Why is this?
Re: open the kml file on android google earth soapfish 6/28/11 1:03 AM
well , strangely enough it even doesn't work on normal google earth ...
means earth is opening something , but I have no idea what it is ,, looks like a ocean near California.

so what is it ?
what do you want to do ?

It's supposed to show all the fault lines in the USA. The source is from this page:

WrightRocket has come up with a great solution to this. Store your kml on in a directory and use his program to open it in google earth... i've been hoping for something like this forever (well, since i got rid of iphone and took up android!)

Earth PM Peter -

Any updates on when we will be able to open a KML file with Google Earth using Google Android?  

Thanks,
Ted

It is now March of 2012.

I tried to open a KML link in my android app.  My expectation was that Google Earth would open and the KML file would be displayed.  Instead, I saw a text version of the KML file.

My question is:  Do the Android developers at Google ever talk to the Google Earth developers?

WTF?

KML/KMZ support was added in Earth 6.2, released just a few days ago.  Enjoy.
Re: open the kml file on android google earth Alien_Technology 3/16/12 12:41 PM
@robertlipe - that's great news.  

Can you please explain how to open KML data from a URL?  On my Razr KML files always open G Maps.

Hi

You need to set your preferences to Google Earth instead of Maps

Best regards

А открыть то как собственно созданный KML!?
Вложить KML в программу или открыть с помощью Google Earth?
Уже что только не пробовал.
