Recently, it has been announced in Google’s Local Guides Forum that the company is rolling out support to upload videos to Google Maps local listings on Android devices.
In the help document, it’s explained that the feature is currently available to just Android users. In the document, Google writes, “To add videos, you must use an Android device. To remove videos, you must use an Android device or a computer.”
There are three different areas where you can add videos to:
- Add a video from a place’s page.
- Add videos from “Your contributions.”
- Add video using Google Photos or your Gallery app.
Meg from Google announced this first to the Google Local Guides who earn points when they add videos or photos to local listings. Meg from Google wrote:
