How To Turn Off GMB Business Messaging Notifications on iPhone or Android

By August 20, 2021 2 Comments

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:

  1. Go to your maps app
  2. Click on your photo in the upper right corner
  3. Click on Settings
  4. Click on “Notifications”
  5. 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.
