Google Street View

Is it a video? How is it different from video?

It's not a video. With video, viewers can only "play" and "pause." Street View lets your customers "walk through" your business at their own pace, taking time to stop and look around. They get to see your atmosphere and really get a feel for who you are and what you do.

Will there be "See Inside" thumbnail when my tour is published ?

In the previous interface design, See Inside, Street View, and Photos were represented by three distinct image buckets. This has proven to be a confusing and unnecessary distinction for our users because See Inside is often showing exterior views, Street View is often not on streets, and photos are often actually 360 photos. Thus, Google is moving away from distinguishing 360 photos with the "See Inside" language and are now showcasing 360 imagery on it's own visible tab in the photos gallery, both on mobile and on desktop.
