New Yorkers and Londoners Can Now Do Christmas Window Shopping Virtually Via Google Maps

December 19, Google revealed: “Starting today, with Google Maps Business View, you can see decked out displays in New York and London; without braving the cold weather, lugging bags around or fighting for sidewalk space with fellow shoppers. Now grab your virtual reindeer because we’re off to our holiday window tour


Thanks to Google Maps Business View, this Christmas shopping season will have many Window Shoppers do their ‘scouting’ for the best shopping deal from the convenience of their smartphone or computers. This new feature has been launched for Google Maps under Business View


Google also posted a couple of pictures to demonstrate how the Business View feature works. Using the Business View, ‘window shoppers’ can view Saks Fifth Avenue with all its amazing Christmas decoration with twinkling lights beckoning shoppers to come and start shopping.

Google is trying to make the line between virtual and real world thinner and enabling shoppers to do their browse through the windows display of retailers from the convenience of their own homes.

Google said: “Business View provides virtual tours of thousands of retail shops around the world, whether you’re headed to Old Navy in San Francisco or Benetton in Russia. Just look for the ‘See Inside’ marker on Maps, Search and Google+, which lets you virtually explore your holiday shopping destination.”
