Google Maps gets new ‘Views’ section

Google Maps gets new ‘Views’ section

Google introduced the “Photo Sphere” feature with Android 4.2 where users could create their own 360° photos that resemble Google Street View. Photo Spheres are cool but there was really no way to share them other than to upload them to Google Maps. Today, Google introduced a “Views” section to Google Maps on the web where people can contribute and check out Photos Spheres submitted by users around the world.

Google Views requires users to have a Google+ account in order to log in and submit photos. Once you’re logged in, you can easily share your Photo Spheres from the Android Gallery application. Tap on the share button and select Google Maps. Your  Photo Sphere will be uploaded to Google Views where its shared publicly. There are no private sharing features as of yet.

While Views doesn’t have many features, it does offer a great way to get a more detailed look around the world. It’s a great way to explore parts of the world without ever leaving your home.

Hit up the source link to check out Views for yourself and to submit your own Photo Spheres.
