Ahh, so that’s what the inside of that expensive restaurant looks like.
Google Maps has announced a new way for users to view indoor panoramic imagery. Dropping the Google Maps pegman on orange circles will now let you see an indoor view of a participating establishment.
These images, says Google, will give you “the feeling of being there, and the comfort of knowing what to expect when you arrive.”
This move is part of Google’s Business Photos program, which started back in 2010 but is getting a push only just now by being highlighted right on the maps, making it a lot easier to find.
The Business Photos program is currently available only in select cities but I, for one, would love to see this in the UAE as we have some incredible indoors to show off.
