[Updated on Nov 20] Badges are now available for all Local Guides.

 

[Updated on Oct 11] Badges are coming soon for everyone, but we’re experiencing a delay on Google Maps for Android. Stay tuned for more info in the coming weeks.

 

Do you love taking photos? How about reviewing the places you visit? Maybe you’re into exploring new areas, or adding details about places to help others get around.

 

Local Guides share their knowledge in many ways. That’s why, starting today, we’re introducing badges to recognize different kinds of top contributors on Google Maps.

Here are the four new badges you can earn right now:

 

Reviewer

You’ll earn this badge by writing detailed reviews that help people decide where to go.

 

Photographer

This badge is for sharing photos of places, so others can see the world on Google Maps.

 

Trailblazer

Here’s the badge for exploring. Earn it by being the first to add, review, or take a photo of a place.

 

Fact Finder

Earn this badge by checking facts, making edits, and answering simple questions about places to help people find the right information on Google Maps.

 

By sharing more, you can get upgrades for each one. For example, a Novice Photographer can become an Expert Photographer, and then reach legendary status as a Master Photographer. Your past contributions will be factored in too, so some of you may have already reached that status!

 

This feature is rolling out over the next few weeks. To see if it’s on your device right now, go to “Your contributions” on Google Maps for Android or iOS. There, you’ll see your progress toward each badge. Tap each one to see how to earn the more advanced version of your new badge.

 



would only be on need to know based on your travels in my opinion

I have updated my Google App, but not showing the new badges. Is there any other way to view the badges.

Re: Introducing new badges on Google Maps

Hello @HelloJess and all LGs. I've done some testing with the stats on the new badges and from this believe that the stats for Reviewer and Trailblazer badges are not counting correctly.

 

Reviewer

Reach on the Reviewer badge is incorrect and inconsistent with the Reviews shown on the Contribution home tab.

Photos (Add the first photo of 50 places) on the Trailblazer badge  is not incrementing

 

To further add to the confusion, where it is possible to compare, the statson the mobile badges and those on the desktop do not totally agree with each other :-(

 

Can this be investigated?
