Update to the Update 4/9 9:48 PM
Google has updated their GMB Covid-19 page to indicate that leave a review functionality is currently rolling out on a region by region basis:
“Review replies are now available. New user reviews, new user photos, new short names, and Q&A will gradually return by country and business category.”
Update:Maybe I spoke too soon. I and several others saw this review and others show in incognito. But it subsequently disappeared. That being said, this review by Jason did in fact show on this listing and is still showing. So while it isn’t back it appears to be coming back (he says with a rising question at the end of his sentence). So while it seems to be in the process of coming back, do not rejoice quite yet.
Google had indicated yesterday in their GMB Covid alert update that functionality that has been limited due to their Covid-19 efforts would be returning:
Review replies are now available. New user reviews, new user photos, new short names, and Q&A will gradually expand by country and business category.
