Google Takes A New View of Its Street View App
Google has refreshed its Street View app for both Android and iOS devices and took the opportunity to add several features. To start, Street View replaces the older Photo Sphere Camera app for iPhones and the legacy Street View from Google Maps app on Android phones. The revised app gains 360-degree imagery, making it possible to take in-depth tours of places such as hotel lobbies, restaurants, and other locales. Moreover, Google is now encouraging users to contribute their own 360-degree panoramas to Street View for all to view. Google is positioning user-contributed content next to its own within Street View so everyone can explore far-flung and nearby locations. Street View is free to download from the Google Play Store and iTunes App Store.
