We are pleased to announce that a large selection of 360Cities’ panoramas have been included as a default feature in Microsoft’s new Windows 8 Travel App, powered by Bing, which was released on October 26th, 2012.
See how it works:
The Bing Travel App features thousands of 360Cities’ panoramas from around the world. We expect the number to increase over time. In selecting panoramas for the Travel App, Microsoft specifically looks for high quality panoramas of iconic locations. The chance of your panoramas being selected increases based not only on the quality and theme of your panorama but also on the quality of the metadata and tags.
A select few 360Cities’ panoramas will even have the honor of featuring on the Bing.com homepage. The first of these appeared on October 26th. Here’s a screenshot:
Big thanks to Microsoft and the Bing team for helping bring 360Cities images to an even larger audience. Find out more about Bing apps on Windows 8 here.
