We are proud to announce one-click sharing of your great photos and videos to your Google My Business profile.

This builds on our great new Google Review Alerts, updated Google Review Alerts, and comprehensive Google Review Reporting which help you keep track of all the great reviews that our Intelligent Review Routing feature helps you get in Google.

You can choose to share any photo or video in your Checkins List report, click the Share icon, and that photo or video will be shared to your Google My Business profile.

These will be shared in Google’s “Photos at work” category which “help customers quickly understand the type of work you do”. (Learn more). As always, please make sure you follow Google’s Posts content policy on the things you choose to share to Google.
