Business Street View with Google Maps

I noticed today that you can now see which businesses on Google Maps have interior Street Views.
I'm not sure when Google Maps tweaked the UI but when you drag pegman across Google Maps you can now see which businesses have indoor Street View by a blue dot. Is is a little confusing because Panoramio photos are also shown with a blue dot. The interior Street View dots are a little bigger so you can just about tell them apart.
When you are navigating Street View you can also see where you can venture inside a business by two white arrows pointing into the store. You can click the arrows to visit the interior of the selected store.
