View New Panoramic Photos in Google Earth

For quite a while Google Earth has had a layer called 360 Cities that features spherical imagery of many interesting and historic sites around the world. On Friday, Google announced that they've added even more an better panoramic imagery to their standard Google Earth layers.

The new panoramic imagery is a part of the standard "photos layer" in the "primary database." Standard Panoramio images still display as they always did as little blue/white outlined boxes. Now when you turn on the photos layer you will also see red outlined squares. Those red outlined squares indicate panoramic images.
