We are asking for Local Guides' help to improve a new feature we are rolling out. The next time you visit a place that has its hours on display, snap a picture of the sign AND update the hours the regular, manual way in Google Maps. This will help improve our ability to detect the correct hours from just a photo, making it easier for everyone to contribute (plus, you'll earn TWO points - 1 for correcting the information and 1 for adding a photo of the hours!)

You can also shake your phone or tablet to send us feedback. This captures a screenshot of your Google Maps screen to help us understand what is going on. You can remove this screenshot if it's not needed. To turn "shake to send feedback" on or off, follow the steps below.
Open the Google Maps app
Touch the menu > Settings.
Check the box or switch on "Shake to send feedback."
Tips for giving good feedback:
Be as specific as possible. If you're not sure what something is called, you can describe it instead. The more we know, the more likely we can fix it.
Include as much information as you can. Tell us what you were doing, what happened, and what you expected.
