Matterport Capture Android Release Date 17-02-2020? djsupreme98 4 2 yearsjohnwheatley (138): I talked to a guy at MP about a week ago. i asked him about the android app release. He said he wasn't sure but thought he'd heard that it would be released within a couple months. I joked and said, "knowing how these things go, then, I shouldn't expect for 5 or 6 months." He chuckled softly and said something like, "could be." I'm hoping the Feb 17 rumor is true.

Yes, everyone knows Google Street View and has seen a few bits here and there, but it's the average homeowner that counts.

Creating a 3D Model with a SmartPhone (without additional hardware) DanSmigrod 7 2 yearsGarySnyder (1889): I see this being a major boom for GSV captures.

MP would do all the heavy lifting of producing the VT so just about anyone could produce a GSV VT.
