Search engine giant Google has started a pilot project that allows people to peek inside businesses found on its maps, wireless communication device users may wish to know.
Essentially, the new feature is an extended version of its Street View technology, which allows users to view 360-degree exterior images.
Google explained that the new scheme worked on a completely voluntary basis.
"Building on the Google Art Project, which took Street View technology inside 17 acclaimed museums, this project is another creative implementation of Street View technology, to help businesses as they build their online presence," a Google spokesman said.
"We hope to enable businesses to highlight the qualities that make their locations stand out through professional, high-quality imagery."
Last week, meanwhile, Google confirmed that it is set to remove some features from its Reader in order to boost its new social networking site.
The search engine giant said that the sharing features on its RSS news reader would soon be removed.
