Apple with iOS 16 added the ‌Apple Maps‌ Look Around feature to the MapKit API that is available to developers, letting developers add the feature to third-party apps for the first time. Third-party apps are also now able to use MapKit with the new 3D map experience that is available in some areas.

Zillow says that with interactive floor plans and 3D tours, the Look Around integration makes it "easier than ever" to get a "deep sense of your home and community." Look Around can be accessed from Zillow listing pages using the Zillow app for iOS devices.

The Zillow app has already integrated SharePlay, with Zillow also rolling out support for Shared with You. Shared with You will let Zillow app users see listings in the Zillow app that have been shared with them through the Messages app on iOS and Mac devices.

Zillow can be downloaded from the App Store for free. [Direct Link]

Well... This is a nice addition. Will definitely come in very handy. The best part is: They are not charging for it. Woo hoo!

The most startling news I gathered from this post was “Wait, Zillow has an APP???”
I use it all the time when I go into neighborhoods I've never been to see how much the houses are "worth".

Well, at least they're not trying to exploit the housing market with AI.

Seriously. It way more convenient to look at neighborhood prices.
I’m open to seeing what you mean. Can you elaborate please, you’re saying the Zillow website is better at looking at neighborhood prices? How; as in map view and seeing different prices overlayed on the map?
