Google India is now providing this free service where business can provide 360 degree tours of their businesses on Google Search pages.
Google has launched a pilot program that puts 360-degree photographs of businesses, with their permission, to highlight the qualities that make their locations stand out. The pilot program starts with Hyderabad and will be rolling out to several other cities.
Basically you fill out this application form and Google will schedule an appointment with your business. Google then will appoint a professional photographer on your behalf who work directly with the business owner to arrange a time to do the photo shoot. All of this will be done at no cost to the business owner. The panoramic photos will appear alongside other still photos on a business’ Place Page.
Currently Google is focusing on businesses like restaurants, cafes, spas, salons, gyms, showrooms, and retail stores, but if your business doesn't fall in one of the above categories, you can still apply.
