Crew and passengers can easily see any external damage, fire or smoke indicating a problem and perhaps bringing it to the attention of flight crew quicker.
In an evacuation during daylight, crew and passengers will not need to aclimatise their vision to the brighter conditions outside. Effectively having window shades open equalises the light levels between outside and inside the cabin.
Also, when in need of evacuation, it is clearer if one side of the airplane might be hazardous due to fire/smoke
In the event of a crash, rescue workers can see into the cabin allowing them to locate bodies/injured.
