The new update announced Thursday, now let listing owners to showcase their structured menus directly on their Google listing for consumers on mobile and also let them edit their menu links directly in the Info tab of the GMB dashboard.
Restaurant owners who are managing listings on GMB now have access to a new editor that let them add or edit menu items, including title, description, and price. In addition, owners can also create multiple sections of the menu, i.e. appetizers, entrees, and desserts.
The editor can abe access from the Info tab in the Google My Business dashboard.
Prior to current update, Google offered the ability to use the GMB API or third-party menu service to create and edit structured menus. That said, this feature is only available to listing “that is not currently connected to a third party provider,” says Google.
Also, the feature is only applicable for listings in English speaking locals.
