TheGoogle My Business mobile app is no longer available, taking its place now will be Google Maps and Google Search, from which you can manage and update your business profile even faster.

The Mountain View company has changed the way companies can access the platform's services to interact with their users. This will undoubtedly make the service more intuitive and faster, while continuing to improve the visibility of each organization.
