The Google My Business application is disappearing! What does this mean for your business?

Removal of Google My Business Application

Google made an announcement on April 6, 2022 regarding the definitive removal of the Google My Business application. You’re probably wondering if it’s still possible to manage your business listing without a mobile application. Don’t worry, you’ve come to the right place! 

Why is Google removing the Google My Business application? 

Google will gradually remove the Google My Business mobile application permanently in the coming weeks. Your business listing will not change, just the way you access it will be different.

You can now manage your Google listing through the search engine or Google Maps application. The reason why Google wants to remove the application is for users to utilise Google Maps more and to simplify the process for small medium sized businesses and freelancers!

What is the alternative solution to easily manage your Google listing?

To edit or optimise your Google My Business listing, you will now have to find your listing manually on the search engine by writing ‘My Business’ or in Google Maps directly. This new way to access your listing can be complicated especially if you need to manage several listings. 

To make things easier for you: the alternative solution is Partoo! The easy way to facilitate the management of your Google listing on a single interface, for one or more businesses!
