A new update in Google Business Profile permits you to create automated responses to commonly asked customer queries. When someone messages your company using your Google Business Profile, you’ll propose questions for them to ask using this tool. It works like a chatbot for customer care and operates on company websites.
Additionally, you can program automated responses to queries in the manner of a chatbot. Stefan Somborac, a specialist in SEO, discovered this feature and tweeted about it:
Although there has been no official statement regarding the addition of automatic FAQs for Google Business Profiles, I was able to verify the new feature by using the Wayback Machine to look up this help page. Cache copies of the page from last month don’t contain the FAQs section, indicating that the launch has place recently. More information about automatic FAQ setup for your company and how they function can be found here.
