So I hadn't logged into GMB since last September. I see all the Review Updates for eliminating the radius search. I'm surprised in this pinned top of the forum thread there's no clear discussion on what specifically happens if you have NOT updated by now?

For my locations, they are all appearing in the same areas with same ranks as they did with radius service areas without me doing anything. So here we are in April 2020. It appears approving the updates for each location will force me to enter service areas. With no change to my GMB visibility on search results, why would I then even waste all that time to manually update all the listings? Seems like Google in the background has done the work for me! Appears they are just wanting me to verify my service areas by re-entering them. Is there any confirmed downside to leaving it as is?
