Google Store View Goes Official

Remember the mysterious Google cameramen that we sighted a while ago? Well, it turns out that Google really does want you to be able to check out stores from your computer. Now, in Google Places, you’ll be able to check out the interior of outlets such as restaurants, cafes, hotels, spas, salon, gyms and even retail stores, all from the comfort of your home. These pictures are shot by Google photographers who take the time to arrange a photo shoot with the business owners. So next time if you’re looking to check out that new place, you can do it with your rear end firmly glued to your chair. Google is currently running a trial of this project in about 30 cities across the US, Australia and Japan. If you want your business to be considered, you can always send Google a message.
