Now that you know what a Google Virtual tour is, (here is the post of what and why a Google Virtual Tour). Lets highlight a new feature recently added to Google Business Photos.
The Multi Level feature allow businesses with more than one floor to add a virtual tour per floor and to travel between them. This expand the use of Virtual Tours to larger businesses like Hotels, Gymnasiums, Department Stores, Event Venues and others, particularly useful here in NYC where many businesses are located in high rises and have multiple levels.
To navigate from from floor to floor is as simple as to click on the desired level found in the navigation vertical strip at the upper left hand corner of the screen - try it here.
More than 100,000 businesses already have a Virtual Tour and Google Business Photos adoption is accelerating. This trend is expected to continue, especially with the team at Google Maps adding new features like the multi-level navigation.
Yesterday we completed a five floor 90+ pano nodes tour, let me tell you - the multi level feature rocks! More on this job in a coming post.
