Web-based Google Maps Updated, Adds Local Businesses to Street View

For the better part of a year, business listings within Google Maps merely linked to Street View.  As of yesterday, those business listings are now displayed within Google’s Street View itself.  Now, business listings appear as names within Street View and as you hover over the name a pop-up bubble appears showing more details of the targeted business.  Some of the provided information includes: ratings and links to reviews, phone numbers, and business web addresses.

The new feature is not yet available on mobile but here is to hoping that this is a sign of things to come!  Things could get really exciting once Latititude, Buzz, and other features are tied into Street View.
