Something you may want to note, address, or instruct users re: Asteroom tours - I host all types of 360 tours on my website, using IDX permissions from the MLS. In the process of figuring out how to do this, I went through thousands of properties, and hundreds of virtual tours linked. What I found was this: 40% of virtual tour links entered into the MLS do not work. Agents are instructed to remove the http:// or https:// prefix when uploading, and simply input www. - but they typically don't listen. 40% of them at least. And, the sad, and telling thing is - the agents, obviously, don't bother checking the link - as most of these properties had been on the market for weeks or months...never suspecting that their tour link was broken... but that's another story, for another day!!

I find, when I correct the prefix, the tours typically work. I've had the pleasure of working with pretty much every 360 format on the market by now. Asteroom, and 2 other formats will not play on my site, unless I manually fix the http:// and insert the "s" to make it: https:// in the link.

Undoubtedly, there is some confusion amongst end users, and frustration when their tours won't play in certain environments. A simple fix like this was hard to come by. Most of your customers won't bother, and will give up, assuming that the tour just doesn't work.

thank you very much for the information. I actually didn't know about this. We will get this fixed.

Should we change the link to start with www. ? or should we make them start with https://

Sound like if we start with www. that should take care of the issues that you have observed.
