This app was working fine and now I see I'm not the only one having it say "No Internet connection, even when I have Wifi and Cellular internet connections. My services work off of being able to show people results and now I can't even do that! It doesn't even show any pictures at all! Just "no internet connection". I'm on a Note 8. like I said before it worked fine before with some bugs but now it doesn't work at all! Please address this issue because some of us are dependent upon the service!
Very glitchy, trying to add 100s of photos and the app is very unstable at best. local guide Level 8. Every time I try to connect and place photos, the app moves, shifts, and disappears them. Arrows exist, but do not connect, By far the hardest google feature to contribute to. This serves Google interests, they sell the same services I am adding. Compass not working! I have laid out the same 200 photos twice now, just to see them disappear. I am done with this!
It doesn't work. It doesn't update the search quickly at all. It takes about 15 to 20 seconds. When I type in the new search term it returns old search results. and finally and worst of all when I click on the location I want to view like Vancouver it doesn't work. nothing happens. I'm using a Google pixel 3 with the latest dream headset.
I've had this app a few times. I just re-downloaded it the other day to try again but every time I've used it it's slow and uncoordinated when I'm trying to move around. The road crossings dont line up when your trying to scroll down the street in many places and It's really hard to look around with out it jumping all over. It just really needs work. It's a wreck 🤷
The app needs work, it's too glitchy. I batch edit 360 photos, meet all the requirements, I've even tested with multiple versions of the exact same photo, but I always have an issue where some of the 360s in the bunch will upload fine, the others get the error that they can't be uploaded and to check to make sure they meet the requirements. Sometimes going back into the app a day later, it will suddenly accept some of the 360s it rejected the day before, sometimes it won't. Frustrating.
This app needs a lot of work. I use it for submitting and editing photospheres and I discover a new bug almost every time I open it. Changes will fall to be saved (the save button won't even show up sometimes). Location markers will fail to load on the map. There is apparently a limit on selecting 25 photos at a time, but it will continue to say all photos are selected. You can't select a subset to edit, so you get a random group. I have to force kill and delete cache nearly every time. Etc.
I always assumed it was unnecessary since I use Google Maps and Google Earth. I was wrong. Street View is amazing. When you view the photos, 360 photos especially, you feel like you're really there standing in the spot the photo was taken. I assume that's where they came up with the name Street View. Very fitting. I enjoy contributing and also creating educational material with this application.
the biggest problem of this app is that maps are not in position correctly. All the positions shown on the map are more northwest than they actually are. So every time I upload photos I have to manually change the location. It's difficult to operate and inaccurate. But everything is correct when I open Google Maps app, so the problem obviously occurred in this app only.
I got this to upload collections of 360 photos to Google Maps. And my experience is that it's SUPER janky. It'll often get caught in "processing" for long periods of time, in which case you must hit "cancel." Some of my photos show as "published," but never show on Maps. Some of my images show on Maps, but don't show up on the Street View app. Also, uploads seem to take longer than my experience uploading to Mapillary. 2 stars because it does its job. Barely. I guess.
I can't pinch to zoom in/out and when I swipe to try to move, it won't move at all. I'm fixed to one point of the map. the only touch feedback I get is pressing the two icons in the top right in the search bar; the quick zoom out icon and the icon that zooms into my location. can you please fix this? I would like to actually explore the map and do street view stuff.
Absolute garbage of an app. Photo upload limit, connection editing limit, terrible UI, and now the option to do a simple thing like edit photo sphere connections is broken. At the very least, I would have expected Google to be able to create an app for their own OS that isn't garbage but nope. I downloaded the Street View app for iOS. Works fine. Google should be ashamed.
First off, this should be a website or desktop program not an app. It's slow and unintuitive. When transfering 360 photos, there is no upload progress and if you upload more than 10 at a time the app will crash. You can't add multiple photos to a business listing all at once. There is no compass setting to fix picture facing the wrong way. The blur tool is accessed by tapping the screen instead of something normal like a blur tool button. This app is the worst app I have ever had to use.
The only thing I use this for is to take 360 photos, as Samsung removed all other ways to do this off their phone series. This app works well-enough for that, though it does leave black boxes in the images at times. Other than that, it's really good. Also, please reconsider geo-tagging sensitive locations and places that probably do not need to be overrun by people.
Street View you used to be so great to use; one could navigate through streets, through a neighborhood or generally through an unfamiliar area to explore surroundings and landscape of any given neighborhood. It has become so contrived to use that it's more like FECAL matter than a navigational tool at this point. Please bring back the full screen legacy Street View. And, fire those software 'developers' for over-developing and screwing up a useful tool that worked. Sometimes, simpler is better!
I'm really impressed with the app. It wasn't apparent to me exactly what I could do and how much I can steer people towards places that are great and also say why not to visit a certain business. We recently got evacuated from the Monument 🔥 in Big Bar CA. Most people couldn't find it on any map but I was able to recommend different places in town (Weaverville) to any tourist. I'm very excited about exploring different functions of the app.
Difficult to use. I tend to use this to find businesses I can't remember the name of. The controls are difficult and there doesn't appear to be anything to indicate which direction you're currently pointing. When moving down a road, sometimes the camera randomly changes, so you have to really pay attention. Surprisingly poor quality for an app by Google.
I love this app! It was once a function on the regular GOOGLE maps app. I was mad and disappointed one day when I picked up my phone and found that the function was gone. I found it here. My city has more one-way streets than most and this app helps me to recognize my desired location several buildings before my arrival. It has saved me lots of trips around the block after missing driveways. It's a little tricky to learn, but it's well worth it.
It can be a pain to use. It needs an upgrade to remove the problems. As you move, it moves slower than you do, shadows are formed and over laying of images. Leaving black out parts in your 360 photo. Not everyone uses this in the city, I'm in the bush the ground is never flat that is where I the black outs and over lays. The software can't handle sun light and the mapping goes of track. It would be nice to have full GPS added in. You can't rename or rezone where the image was taken.
It's a great app and what not but every time you go to a place it blurs out. Everytime I try to move forward it blurs out and takes a while to make a clear picture. I don't think it's my device as my friends also have this app and they have had the same problem. If you can fix this issue I will rate the app 5 stars.
Pretty cool app! The only thing that is frustrating with this app is it is a bit behind.. even when trying to find certain businesses or properties, some that have been done for 3+ years- don't show up!! If it was more accurate and up to date, it would be 5*s !!!!!!! But, it is an amazing app! View any area as if you were outside at the location!
