Great news, iPhone users! You can now add videos on Google Maps

Googler

Last year, we introduced a new feature that enables Android users to upload videos of their favorite spots on Google Maps. Today, we’re excited to announce that feature is now available to iOS users. 

 

Your reviews will take on a whole new life when you capture your favorite places in motion. You can take a time-lapse video of a bustling outdoor market or show your favorite dessert being prepared with flair. Video reviews also give you a chance to get in front of the camera to give mini tours of the places you love most. Try out a couple different video styles to see which fits you best.

 

How to upload a video on iOS:

  • Take a video of a place. You can only upload the first 30 seconds of a video.
  • Search and select that place on Google Maps
  • Scroll down and tap Add photos or videos
  • Select a video from your camera roll
  • Tap POST and you’re done!

And remember: every video post earns you 7 points! Visit Maps to upload your videos now.

Es una gran noticia para nosotros los usuarios de iOS @AriMar, el poder subir directamente un vídeo 🎥 es un gran avance en compartir como es un sitio en Google Maps, ya que un vídeo da más información que solamente una foto 📸 de cómo es. 👍😀

For the case that has difficulty, in reading my answer, in the upper left part of the screen, in the drop-down menu of languages, you can select the language, in which you want to read the post.

I think it should also be for other smartphones users...

Kudos to the map support team.

I have not yet tried this feature on my android device but I think it is a good idea to start using the video on maps too. People don't read that mush this days I guess 😀
