Google Video

About 10 days ago we reported some businesses and merchants were seeing video upload features in the Google My Business dashboard. Well, Google's Allyson Wright announced in a Google My Business Help thread on Friday that this feature is now fully live.

The deal is, as I demonstrated on Friday at Search Engine Land - I uploaded a video to my profile on Friday and according to Google's own words, the video should be live within 24 hours, but I do not yet see the video on my profile, at least, not a video that I can play either logged in or out, on desktop or mobile.

Go to my business profile and let me know in the photos section if you see a playable video? I see screen shots of some videos but not a playable video. Do you?

Here is how you upload it to Google My Business.

Click on the photos section and then the "videos" and there is a button in the center to upload a video:

click for full size

Then drag the video on the screen:

click for full size

It should upload:

click for full size

It can process and then show up in the section:

click for full size

My video says it was uploaded three days ago now but yet it still does not show up on my business profile.
