It was first launched in 2007 in cities in the United States and has now expanded worldwide and inside of businesses as well. In 2010, indoor views of businesses started to become available.

Google Business View shows customers a 360 degree virtual tour of your business in Google, Google Maps and Google+. In order to ensure the quality and effort, Google has trained photographers to capture multiple 360 degree panoramic photo shots of a business to create an interactive tour that can be viewed 24-7 and featured on Google from anywhere in the world. The blue areas from the above map show Google Street View Coverage as of 2016.
