Google Maps Now Lets iPhone-Owning Local Guides Post Videos — Here’s What It Means For Local Businesses
by David Kaplan, GeoMarketing
August 24, 2018

Almost a year after Google began allowing its Local Guides post videos to Google Maps, now iPhone members of that group of place-based reviewers can do the same.

With over 50 million global Local Guides, the addition of iPhone users is noteworthy.

Google didn’t provide many details in a Local Guides email sent out this week about the inclusion of iPhone users who can available themselves of the video upload feature. But it’s safe to say that giving iPhone owners use of this feature means more of these frequent, trusted reviewers will be able to better showcase events and other highlights from venues, restaurants, hospitality, and pretty much any marketer whose business can benefit from images that provide sight, sound, and motion.

The video uploads are limited to 30 seconds, amounting to the length of a typical TV commercial.

I find it hilarious that it took Google a year to roll this out to iPhone users.
I don't think Google likes Apple. :D
