Make your own Street View collections when you take your camera on a drive, ride, or walk. Your recorded video is converted into Street View when you publish it. Data about your location is used to geotag and position your recording on the map. Connections between individual 360 photos appear 4 days or longer from completed publishing.
Tip: Only outdoor videos can be converted into Street View. Indoor collections usually can’t log accurate GPS information. Learn more about capturing 360 videos for Street View.
