I am a real novice with Google Earth but enjoy poking around. I have read about the new Timelapse feature and would love to give it a try, but the instructions I have seen don't seem to work. For instance, it said go to g.co/timelapse and click on the wheel on the left. When I do it brings up a rotator of different stories, but no Timelapse. When I use the app itself, there doesn't even seem to be a wheel at all. How can I use it?
I do not think you should to click on the wheel on the left, just choose one of categories on the right* and wait patiently while a sequence downloads. (Position of this section on the screen can be varied by different browsers and settings.)
Time slider runs down 3 times -it is usually enough for a 100% download of a sequence at my bandwidth- then it stops, but you can restart animation manually with the play button.
I'm still not sure I understand. The only things on the right in the web version are the Fly to, Street View, 3D, Reset and Zoom. In the app it is only Street View and 3D. I would love to view the city I live in which, during this time period, grew from about 1,000 population to over 50,000. That was all before I moved here.

As said above, searching and asking in the GE Help Center and/or in the GE Help Community would be a better idea for your questions because we are mainly the Google Earth application (installed in computers) users and content creators. Perhaps, people experiencing the same problem have already started a topic or you may start a new one helping others.
It works fine with me but the staff there have better tools to check your situation and, probably, some local servers on your side.
Sorry I didn't take your advice the first time. This time I did and it worked great. It's a little fast, but I will play with it to see if I can slow it down and see other features. Thanks for your help.
KitsuneFox: syzygy - posts I have made here do not receive much attention. I may do a detailed writeup of the now lost Edgemont Park in PA, one of the first electrified trolley parks in the world, but still debating. I'm missing 1 key bit of information.
