As everyone in the industry knows Google My Business has so many updates and new features it can be really difficult to keep up with.
Google launched a helpful new page that announces & tracks all the new GMB features by date.
Liz our GMB Community Manager let us know yesterday, so I wanted to share.

This is helpful for a couple reasons. 1) Keep up with new updates. 2) I'd REALLY review all the ones that are listed. There are a lot of features mentioned that you may have missed. 3) You are blogging or communicating about a certain feature and want to mention how long ago that feature was added. 4) Someone else blogs about or ask about a feature and thinks it's brand new, but you know it's been around for awhile. You can show them the date it actually launched.
I think this is a great move toward better communication and more transparency.
PSS Skim the updates that are listed and tell us how many you were not even aware of. There are lots of subtle changes that were not widely publicized - so you might learn something new.
PSS This forum section: Google Local IMPORTANT is another way to keep up.
We cover not only the updates, but guideline changes, bugs, problems, how to handle or take advantage of new features as well as alerting you to features that are removed.
