Finally, after many months of waiting, integration of a 360° Virtual Tour to Google Street View is now in Public Beta phase. We will be rolling out this feature to all our existing 3D Tour clients for FREE during the Public Beta. All existing 3D Tours will be published to Google Street View over the next month. Please note that there will be a fee associated with this feature in future.
What is Google Street View?
Google Street View will help to boost your online presence and search visibility. Millions of users search on Google Maps every day. When a user search for your business listing, they are able to enter into Google Street View and view a 360° virtual tour of your space. They can then visit your website to view our most immersive 3D Virtual Tour.
