Google My Business Insights Photos

Google is testing allowing business owners to add captions or descriptions to photos they upload to their business profiles. Mike Blumenthal spotted this in a Google Business Profile Help thread and also posted about it on Twitter.

The funny thing is that this is a feature request for a while and Google told people that this is not coming. A top contributor wrote in the thread "I have heard back from Google and unfortunately the ability to add a description with your photo on search or maps is not available. The team will be looking to add this in the future."

But two days ago, a business owner was able to add them. He wrote "Here is a picture of one of the pictures that I put the description on. Just where you added the picture before below it was a place to put a description of up to 80 characters I believe." He then shared this screenshot in the thread:

As Mike said, "Google is apparently testing the ability for business owners to add captions to their photographs?"
