The Google Business Photos program is now officially open to businesses in India. It is a paid premium product offered by Google through its network of Google Trusted Photographers and is currently live in the US, Australia, New Zealand, France, Ireland, Netherlands, Canada and Spain. India will be the first emerging market country for Google Business Photos.


The initiative aims to break down the barriers that stop small businesses from getting online by offering a quick and easy tool, to help them in their line of work. Through Google Business Photos, consumers can see the interior imagery of popular businesses in their cities, starting with the main eight cities and eventually expanding to more businesses across 20 cities in India. It is envisaged that small businesses which are a household name across retail, hotel, leisure and entertainment will be at the forefront in taking advantage of Google’s new initiative in India.


Shailesh Nalawadi, Product Manager, Google Maps said, “I am very excited about bringing the power of the internet to each and every business in India. Consumers will  be able to visit a business right from their laptop, mobile phone or tablet. The potential for Google Business Photos in small and medium businesses is limitless.”
