Manage your notifications

You can choose which kinds of Google My Business notifications you 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)

Manage email notifications

To manage the Google My Business notifications you receive via email:

  1. Sign in to Google My Business.
  2. In the menu on the left, click Settings.
  3. Set your preferred language and email address for notifications.
  4. Check the box for each kind of notification that you want to receive.

These settings apply to all listings owned or managed by the account that’s signed in to Google My Business. To see which account you’re currently using, click the menu icon  in the top left, and see which account is listed at the top of the panel that appears. To set notifications settings for another account, sign out, then sign back in with the other account.

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

Manage mobile notifications

To manage the Google My Business notifications you receive on your mobile device:

  1. Open the Google My Business app. (If you don’t already have the app, you can download it for Android or iOS.)
  2. If you manage more than one listing, select a listing that’s owned or managed by the Google account whose settings you’d like to manage.
  3. Tap Menu  and then Settings and then Notifications.
  4. Check the box for each kind of notification that you want to receive.

These settings apply to all listings owned by the account that owns the listing you’ve selected in Google My Business app. To set notifications settings for another account, repeat the steps above.
