Manage your notifications

You can choose which kinds of Business Profile notifications you'll receive on your mobile device and in your email inbox. Notifications can help in a variety of ways, like letting you know when customers leave photos or reviews on your Business Profile, alerting you to product news from Google and reminding you to keep your profile up to date.

You can opt in to receive notifications like the following:

  • When someone posts on your Business Profile
  • Suggestions to keep your Business Profile up-to-date
  • Updates about your account
  • Updates about new features
  • When you get new followers or bookings (mobile only)

Regardless of your notification settings, you may still receive important updates about your account from Google.

You may see Business Profile notifications in Google Maps and Search. To opt out of these notifications, tap and hold on the notification. Then, turn off Business Profiles.
