360Cities partnering with Microsoft on Windows 8 Bing Travel app

After months of integration work, we’re pleased to announce that Microsoft is now displaying 360Cities panoramas as part of their Travel App, powered by Bing, in the new Windows 8 Release Preview launched on May 31st. There are currently over 4,300 of our stunning panoramas, each with attribution to the photographer and a link back to the panorama on 360cities.net.  We expect to increase the number of panoramas available on the service over time.

According to Troy Batterberry, Principal Group Program Manager, “We are excited to partner with 360Cities and to integrate their beautiful panoramas into our Bing Travel app.  360Cities’ panoramas offer Windows 8 users an immersive and visual way to discover and explore destinations from all over the world.”

We’ve made a short video demo for those who haven’t yet installed the Windows 8 Release Preview:
