  • StreetView4D – Google changed Street View User Content interface!

    StreetView4D.
    Google changed their Street View User Content interface.
    This means that currently not all Street View URL’s are working in StreetView4D.
    Photo and Photo Sphere URL’s are not working at the moment.

    Normal Street View URL’s are working.
    It also means that some of the URL’s in the Example Browser are not working

    Our development department is working hard to fix this issue.
