Google Maps already provides sufficient information about nearby stores when you are looking for them. Today Google announced to show an enlarged view of the ads of local stores including links to contact those shops via phone. This change will make it easier for users to view and connect with the businesses they want.
The new view will continue to show information from ad extensions for eligible ads. If advertisers include a phone number for their ads using locations extensions or ad extensions, customers can place a phone call directly from the ad. Additional data including store hours, ratings and the street view image of the business are shown in location extensions to help customers locate the required business. These extensions also offer the unique benefit of enabling the advertisers' business locations to be highlighted directly on the map with an expandable ad marker for more information about the business.
