Google My Business Post Announcement
In June 2017, Google released an option for businesses to update their Google My Business posts. It’s still pretty new but seems to be something that could become really useful for promoting content. And, it only takes a few minutes to do.
Another feature that was added was the messaging aspect to your profile. You can enter a mobile phone number that will allow potential customers to contact you directly through your Google listing via Allo.
