Explore world landmarks, discover natural wonders and step inside locations such as museums, arenas, restaurants and small businesses with Google Street View. Also create photo spheres to add your own Street View experiences. Start with your phone’s camera or add a one–shot spherical camera (like the Ricoh Theta V or S) for easy 360º photography. Then, you can publish to Google Maps to share your photo spheres with the world. Content galleries: • Browse — or be notified of — Google’s newest special collections • Explore all of Street View (including contributions from others) • Review your public profile of published photo spheres • Manage your private photo spheres • Immerse yourself in photo spheres with Cardboard mode Creating and sharing photo spheres: • Use your phone’s camera (no camera accessories required) • Connect to a spherical camera to capture in one tap • Share to Google Maps as immersive photo spheres • Share privately as flat photos Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
Update 1/17/20: Very disappointing that, after 4 months, Google can’t or won’t fix this issue with the VR/Cardboard mode not working since their last update. No response, no sorry, we’re working on it, ...sorry you can’t use the VR viewer you bought. I read where it’s only an issue with Apple/iOS and that it works fine on Android, but haven’t confirmed, yet. Hopefully, Google’s not just ‘sticking it’ to Apple customers. Update 12/16: It’s been over 3 months since the VR feature was ‘disabled’ by an update, and although many have complained, no update or fix has been provided. Update 11/25: Despite what the listed features say, you cannot immerse yourself in Cardboard photo spheres because the update from about 3 months ago bricked this feature, at least for me and and some others. -Still waiting for an update that fixes this. Definitely not updating any other Google apps, and have deleted this app until VR is fixed.
Typed in my home address and saw a photo of another house.
It’s impossible to properly orient your 360 images because it won’t show the image when connecting them together You guys are not even trying to fix any of these problems. It’s been years. Pathetic
Application does not work only black screen when switching to 3d view
When making Camera 360, it's either taking forever to capture the yellow dot or just simply show white dot. Never had these problems on the much older iPhone 7 Plus though.
This app is great when it works! Sadly it’s not working on iPhone 11 Pro. Looking forward for an update with several fixes!
On an iPad it is hard to see this app is still helpful (sometimes) keep up the good work
Trying to use VR mode and the screen is all black with the white line separator. Looks like this issue has been reported long ago, but can't find any responses from Google.
I use the app to post images of my local area and soon I will post images in other areas. The app allows me to upload my 360 degree images but if I try to connect them into a tour no matter what I do or how many attempts I make to connect the images I get an error message that says an unspecified problem has arisen and I should try again. This is very disappointing and frustrating. I have qualified as a Trusted Google photographer and am very keen to consolidate my work with “Tours” to connect with google maps etc. I read other users have similar problems. I do appreciate the complexity of the programming but hope a resolution is found ASAP. Thanks Google for a great app and let it continue to develop and achieve bug free status !!!
