Google Business Photos brings Street View into the store

Here’s an interesting take on Google’s popular Street View on Google Maps. With online browsing and shopping so much a part of the everyday lives of people these days wouldn’t it be great if you could see inside the store, restaurant or pub before you spend your money.

The Google Street View technology is brought indoors with 360 degree panoramic views and interactive tours. Business owners can embed the technology and the photos on their own website or on Facebook and other social media sites.

With the explosion of New York style small bars in Perth it would be nice to take a tour before leaving the office.  Fridays of course. At the time of writing I was  not able to locate a Google endorsed (Trusted photographer) in our neck of the woods but there is a button to click to suggest your area, and another button for photographers to apply for trusted status.
