Recently in our Facebook group (Local Search Insiders), David Hills pointed out that you can add videos to your reviews on Google. Apparently, this feature has existed for a while but it’s really easy to miss because it is not an option on a desktop.
When you go to leave a review on your computer, you only get the option to leave a photo with your review (see the image below).
When you go to a browser on your phone and go to leave a review, you get a slightly different screen (see image below) but it still only allows you to upload a photo.
How to leave a video with your review
If you go to the Google Maps app and go to leave a review, you now see the option to add a video with your review (see the image below).
Once you do this, the video will show up with your review and will have a play button on it like in this example.
