How to view photospheres in photoshop?

I am taking photospheres for google street view and I want to be able to pan and tilt around like in google photos so that I could blur faces and car plate numbers.

Viewing it in google photos is perfectly fine but viewing it in photoshop gives me a flat jpeg, is there a plugin, script, or something that allows me to do this?

There were some for Photoshop if I remember correctly.  In Panorama  tools by Professor Helmut Dersch of the University of Applied Sciences Furtwange.  They would rotate and transform the stitch spherical panorama around in Photoshop like the Spherical viewers do. So you could work on the severely distorted persoective view Area in a view the corrected to a normal perspective. 

You may want to look at Panorama Tools  for the Photoshop Plug-ins.   I do not know if they will function in new versions of Photoshop or if they are 32Bit Plug-ins or 64Bit plug-in versions of the plug-ins.  The Package is quite old....

Hi

For blurring faces , number plates etc I would do that on the 2D opened layer.

Yo view the sphere:

With the layer selected go to 3D - New Mesh from Layer - Mesh Preset - Spherical Panorama

When looking around use the camera orbit control so that you stay viewing from the centre of the sphere. If you move the camera or object you could come out of the sphere.

To widen the view go to Current view in the 3D panel , then in properties change FOV (field of view) value

Is there a simple way to add a photosphere viewer in photoshop so that it displays photospheres as intended?

One year later, don't know if you're still in the the need and if you updated your graphics card, but the Photoshop team added an easy workflow for 360 :
