Post photo updates of a place

On your mobile device, you can post photo updates of a place. These updates are visual posts that you contribute to so that you can share updates about a place, like:

  • Changes to business hours
  • Seasonal menus
  • New products or services
  • Renovations
  • Exhibits
  • COVID-19 updates

For places that have multiple photo updates, the most recent update shows up first.
