When will Google shut down Business View?4277

3rd Party
Metroplex360 private msg quote post Address this user

It's 12:22am CST ... which means that it's 10:22am PST. At midnight, Google Business View for Google Trusted Photographers goes lights out.

Time to get one last tour in the system and to take advantage of the tools that Google has yet to provide their 3rd Party API developers.

@Metroplex360 not quite sure if it's really needed. I never had the tool available to me and still post businesses on Google Maps. The only tool I miss is for multiple story business locations.

@grmngrl It's not necessary - and has demonstrated with their brilliant and rapidly developing "first to market" platform. With other 3rd parties including LCP360 and the Street View App available - of course, this is the closure of just one method.

Business View allowed:
- Custom Attribution of Tours / White Labelled Submission
- Automatic positioning and joining of tours using Photogrammy (not GPS dependent) -- very accurate but never 100% reliable.
- Ingestion of Images with Panos for immediate posting.

These 3 tools were fantastic and I believe, based on 3rd party offerings, that the API currently doesn't support automatic positioning or posting of images. Custom Attribution is now tied to G+ accounts, which I believe image uploading is too.

So! My final hurrah tonight! It's midnight in California right now... bon voyage!
