What is it

Google started to add a Message button to the posts, I am seeing this when users check your listing on the mobile phone.

I am not sure if it is a test or if Google is rolling out to all listings and devices.

However, I am sure that only businesses with “Messaging” activated can have this new feature. So if you don’t have messaging active, I will show you how you can activate it, but don’t forget to check the “Messaging Guidelines”.

Update 26 November 2020:

I am seeing this feature now on Google Posts section of the Live Google My Business profiles as well. So definitely Google is launching this feature to a wider number of profiles
