Google Maps using Description field

Post by sparrow » Mon Sep 02, 2019 4:02 pm


I added a 360 to an existing Google Maps location and Google Maps used the description field as the image title.

IE when I view the image in Street View, the small badge on the top left of the photo reads...
  • [Description]
  • [Profile photo, profile name]
  • [Street View - Jun 2019]
I don't recall this happening before and wondered if it was a 6.1 beta3b bug or intended feature.

Also, I edited the field to something more appropriate and resubmitted the image. Google is still displaying the original description. Is this usually resolved within a few days?

For some reason Street View uses the Description for the title, it has always done this.
If you have updated it, then yes 72 hours or more.
