Videos Finally Come to Google My Business

It looks like the option to upload videos to a Google My Business listing has finally arrived. This was just spotted in one of our clients dashboards:

The ability to add a video to a local listing VIA Google Maps was first noticed back in August, 2017. But this is the first time the option is showing up inside of the GMB dashboard.

Where does the video display live?

We posted our first video about ten minutes ago and it has yet to appear in the wild. I am guessing it will display wherever photos display (Knowledge Panel, Google Maps). Google will likely add a separate “Video” (sub)tab on mobile like they already do for this listing for Voodoo Doughnut in Portland:

 

Are you seeing the video tab in GMB?
