Send 360 Tours to Expeditions

January 24, 2019

 

 

 

Google recently updated Expeditions, so now you can send 360 tours from Tour Creator or Poly to the app to view in VR.  With Google's Tour Creator, anyone can create their own 360 tours and send them to the Expeditions app.  For instructions on creating a tour with Tour Creator, check out our blog post here. Poly, another platform by Google, is a database with thousands of 360 tours, 3D models and pictures created by others. 

 

For step by step instructions on how to send 360 tours from Poly or Tour Creator to Expeditions, check out the video or written instructions below.
