I was pleasantly surprise when this AutoAwesome Pano showed up in my Google+ photos. It is actually created from 16 individual photos in approximately 3 overlapping bands (taken hand held so the overlap is not precise) and cover approximately 180° view from the horizon to directly over head. It is a very big wide panorama.
I have found so far it is relatively rarely that google+ assembles my multipanel panoramas, instead it often makes then into stop motion movies. I see not being able to create a multi-image stitched panorama when you have collected a set of suitable photos is a bit of a limitation, waiting for autoawesome to do it for you is an inevitable let down.
