But you can view the image since it's just a standard panoramic photo,
only wider. (On the image you posted, click Options>Download full

The only extra integration desirable I see is for a photo app to
recognize that it's a 360° image and have some way to wrap it around.
The appropriate place to request that feature is to your photo app's
developers (on a mailing list or bug tracker, etc.). That doesn't
sound like a feature for core Unity (like in Dash previews), at least
not until it's included in core photo apps.
