The NEW GMB Mobile 2.1 Editor has been updated to resemble what you see on Maps & Search.
Google gave us a preview of all the features prior to launch and even though I don't use the mobile app, I have to say it looks like a very impressive update, with lots of great new and much needed features.

It should be rolled out on Android today, and iOS in the coming week or so.


HERE IS WHAT the NEW APP LOOKS LIKE

One of the new features I really like is the ability to simply tap to instantly see how your business appears on Maps and in Search. That option is in GMB desktop too, but is so subtle most miss it.

CLICK TO VIEW YOUR LISTING

Other new features include:

.:. Intuitive interface. For example just click the map to edit your location.

.:. Better messaging: Alerts you right away if a field you input is wrong.
(Incorrect address or phone format for example.)

.:. New hours editor. Including ability to simply click 24 hours instead of doing it the old way.

.:. New regional service area settings, plus service area preview.


Links official Google announcements and docs:
(Coming soon. Will share link as soon as I get them.)

Do you have the update yet? Most should...

What do you think???
