I did some googling... apparently the Street View app has similar photosphere functionality?
> create photo spheres to add your own Street View experiences. Start with your phone’s camera or add a one–shot spherical camera (like the RICOH THETA S) for easy 360º photography. Then, you can publish to Google Maps to share your photo spheres with the world.
I'm surprised to learn both that there's a dedicated street view app, and that it has a built in photosphere feature...
...typical google with their incoherent approach to software support...
You can make your own street view with Google's street view app. You don't have to wait for a Google car to do it. Android and iPhone.
The free Google street view app available on iOS and Android.
However it does take some patients and is quite fiddly to get right.
You need to take 40+ photos round all around in 360 degrees and make sure they line up properly.
You need an accelerometer in your phone (all iPhones) and some Android phones.
Yes, you can
Did you take it with the Google Photos app?
To include them in Maps you need to instead use the Street View app. The photosphere camera is also built into that app.
The newest version of the Street View app includes the ability to import any photospheres it finds on your device that were taken with the camera app.
Everyone can contribute with the StreetView App
You need to submit them through the Street View app: [link]
When you import a 360 photo you'll have the option to set an exact location if it isn't already in the image's EXIF data. You can also opt to attach it to a place listing as well, but it isn't required.
Street view app by google. This lets you take 360 degree photos on your phone. Quite amazing. I did not find any free app which can let me do this. For that matter none of the free app do so efficiently as this app. check here [link]
The Google Street View app can do that: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.android.street&hl=en
I still use the default app called "Camera" made by Google, but it appears that they migrated the photosphere capabilities to the Google Street View app as it appears you figured out already:
You could use the street view app to capture 360 pictures at the points you want(you would also be able to view these tours online).It will allow you to chain those pictures together if you would like to do as well. I'm not sure if there is an api for viewing the pictures in a 3rd party app.
A moment of your time, sir!
Had to install Android version of Google View today.
See what screenshots are used. Especially the one depicting CordeValle One Iron Bar.
Coincidence? Riiiiiiiiight. ;]
Anybody knows what your phone needs to beable to make photo spheres?
My just throws an error "phone can't yadayada" without telling why.
Their site doesn't explain either.
The Google Street View App has a native photosphere camera function built-in:
If for some reason it isn't working on Google Camera, Street View should work.
Hit the fob button in the lower right, choose camera.
