In the last few weeks, the number of Google Maps notifications I’ve received from businesses I manage via my Google Account has steadily increased to level: annoying.
With the help of my colleague Josh Mallett, who figured out where the setting was – here’s a short video of how you can turn those GMB Messaging Notifications OFF on your iPhone!
Here are the steps:
- Go to your maps app
- Click on your photo in the upper right corner
- Click on Settings
- Click on “Notifications”
- Toggle the “Business Messaging” and, if you like “Business Listings” notification settings to “off”
Update: Tim Capper says the procedure is NEARLY the same for Android – you should be able to get the general idea from these instructions!
Here’s the link to a video on Twitter that shows you how.
