Yesterday (16 Aug 2016) Google launched a new version (3.26) of their Maps javascript API. It incorporated the patch we have had to use since last year, and completes the transition from Views. I am still exploring it, but one feature that I noticed immediately is a new VR-like mode for mobile devices. It has an icon in the lower right that you can click off/on.

I posted this before, but here is a map of photo spheres I shot around Trinidad, California (USA) to illustrate what you get with the new API:  http://suddenlink.net/popenoe/maps/Trinidad-pano-map.htm

This is just to give you an idea of how photo spheres are rendered now using the javascript API. So far at least, there is no similar VR-like mode for mobile devices in the Google embed API.

I just updated "Basic Google Photo Sphere Javascript Tutorial" to factor in Google's recently improved support.

Part 1 -- "Basic Photo Sphere Tutorial"
Part 2 -- "DIY Constellations" (also updated)
Part 3 -- "Setting the POV", like "capture a snapshot" in Round.me.
