Last year, we introduced new badges that recognize the different ways Local Guides like you share your knowledge on Google Maps. Whether you love to write detailed reviews, share amazing photos, or check the facts, there’s a badge for you.
Now that both Android and iPhone users can add videos on Maps, we’ve launched a new badge that celebrates Local Guides who love to capture their favorite places in motion. You can earn the Director badge by sharing videos of the places you visit on Maps. Try giving a tour of an attraction in your area or sharing a video review of a restaurant you love.
By sharing more great videos, you can upgrade from a Novice Director to an Expert Director—and eventually work all the way up to a Master Director. Your past video contributions are factored in, so some of you may already have this badge!
To check, go to “Your contributions” on Google Maps for Android or iOS. There, you’ll see your progress toward this badge.
