Please note that this functionality only extends to the viewing of multi-point 360° Panoramas from a series of fixed points and the movement from one fixed point to another when using such ‘VR’ devices (entirely consistent with the existing behaviour for the smartphone based solution); it does not also extend to free movement/navigation within the 360° Panorama itself.
