Google’s finally starting to highlight text messages from verified businesses
Companies engaging with their customers are now able to flip on an updated API to show their status as a verified business as well as a short profile while texting through Google Messages. Owners and representatives will also be able to chat with their customers through the Google Maps app.
For those unfamiliar with Verified SMS, it’s a feature in Google Messages where Google is able to check if bots texting you actually represent the companies they claim to stand for by checking the number against its business registry.
