Hi,

 

Actually Samsung Gear 360 (2017) is not compatible with Google Street View. Also is not compatible with other smartphones than galaxy 7, 8 and A5 2017, iPhone 6 et 7.... But it is very useful to scratch your back.

 

Courage! Google updates should come.

When? We don't know...

Here's a Google Article on how to set that up. 

  1. Make sure a micro SD card is inserted. The card slot is located behind the door.
  2. Turn the camera on by pressing and holding the power button on the side.
  3. Make sure the camera is fully charged. On the camera screen, you can see the battery level.
  4. Press and hold the Menu button until you see "Gear 360 Manager".
  5. Press the Menu button twice until until you see "Google Street View".
  6. Press the button on the top of the camera to select this mode and turn on Wi-Fi.
  7. Make sure your phone is fully charged.
  8. On your phone, open the Settings app.
  9. Connect your phone to the 360 camera's wifi network (which will end in ".OSC"). The default password is the set of 8 numbers shown on the second line of the camera display.
  10. Open the Google Street View app .
  11. When the phone is connected to the camera, you’ll see a blue linked camera.

There's also a Youtube video tutorial on how to do this. :)

I would like to hear from a Samsung Moderator whether there are plans to make the Gear 360 (2017) compatible with Street View at a later date. I am asking google the same question.

Hi @userEi092sGLSH We can't speculate on any unannounced update features but I can definitely forward this idea to the appropriate team. Thanks for your input!

The newest firmware (R210GLU0ARB2) allows connecting directly to Street View.

 

Do this:

 

1.  Make sure there's an SD card in the camera.  Power it on.

2. Hold the Menu button (long press) until it says "connect to Android" (or connect to something).

3. Quick press the menu button until is says "Connect to Sreet View".

4. Press the capture/record button, or just wait.  The camera's connect light will flash (blue/green/orange) and it will make a clicking noise.  If this stops, pairing has timed out. The camera will display "Gear 360 (xxxx)" followed by an 8-digit number.  That number is the camera's wifi password.

5. Open streetview on your phone. Tap on the camera icon, then "Link to external 360 camera".

6. Street View will attempt to connect, then say "camera not found".  From here, there's an option to "Connect to Camera's Wi-Fi".  Select this.

7.  It will open a standard Wi-fi connection window.  The camera's Wi-Fi ends in .osc.  Select this, then enter the 8 digit number displayed on the camera as the password.  It should connect.
