Google has launched video feature to the Google My Business photos dashboard. Business owners now have the access to upload videos and view videos related to their business uploaded by customers.

Uploading videos in the dashboard to other business listings was enabled last year, however, this feature of being able to add videos to own listing is new. It could prove out to be an effective marketing tool.

Some key points about the Google My Business videos:

  • Videos can be of maximum 30 seconds
  • They will appear in the ‘overview’ tab in the dashboard
  • Videos uploaded by customers will appear in ‘customer’ tab
  • It may take upto 24 hours for videos to appear in the Google dashboard
  • When live, they will display next to the local photos

Additionally, to keep inappropriate videos off the Google My Business page, flag them through the dashboard.

Native mobile support to GMB videos and notifications for new customer videos will soon be added.
