Google Bringing Back SMS Messaging Support To Business Profiles?


When Google first launched messaging within Google Business Profiles (formerly Google My Business), it was done through SMS, text messaging. Then Google removed the SMS portion and just added it to both the mobile app and the web interface. Now, Google might be bringing it back as SMS messaging.

Local SEO, Jeffrey Magner, posted on Twitter a screenshot of Google Business Profiles asking you to turn on SMS alerts for messages. It says “you can now get SMS alerts when customers message your business through chat.” All you need to do is add your phone number to try it out, it says.

Here is that screenshot:

I did not see this myself, so I am wondering if this is a test, if this is rolling out slowly or something else.

I will point out that the new merchant center messaging pilot is done through SMS.

Hat tip to Saijo George for spotting this.

Aurora Morales Recording Again in A Real Google Studio

Aurora Morales of Google has done a nice number of videos for Google, specifically on the publisher monetization front. She did a nice number of those while at home since COVID. She now said she is back for the first time in a real Google studio recording.

She wrote on Twitter “Filming at an actual studio again (and not remotely from my apartment) has felt truly amazing. More policy video content coming.”

This is good to see – I was in one of these studios and they are the real deal.
