This is a feature we will create a separate blog post about as this is quite an important one 🥰

Added Waypoints feature

This is Version1 Beta of the Google style street view implementation of the shopping simulator. With this feature, clients can now add Waypoint cameras with specific 360 views that will allow respondents to navigate the store, before arriving at the interactive shopper store.

Added support for custom assets

Now its possible to easily upload custom Bay assets, so you can easily change the bay type and use any bay you chose, if it is a Tesco, Walmart or Wholefoods style. Now you can easily upload this and create a great realistic respondent experience.
