While almost any 360 camera can be used to upload 360 photos to Street View, only a handful are compatible with Street View 360 video mode. Insta360 One (reviewed here) is the latest 360 camera to gain this feature. Here’s how to use it.
Street View 360 video mode enables you to capture Street View photos that are automatically connected and mapped.
Step 1: connect the Insta360 One to your phone.
This feature only works with the One connected to the phone because it uses the phone’s GPS signal.
Step 2: record a video.
Step 3: share the video to Street View.
The video will be automatically converted to connected Street View photos.
