Benefits of adding a caption to images

I am helping quite a few high street businesses set up, claim, verify & optimise their business listing using Google my Business. My question is, is there any benefit of adding captions to the photos provided through Google my business? I was hoping the captions would get indexed by Google, but I tried searching using keywords from some of the captions, and the image did not show up in the images carousels, so wondering if there is any real benefit. I hope someone can shed some light on this, so I can inform my clients on its benefits accordingly.

Hi @nikreations


They do get indexed, and would be good practice to get into the habit, but in all honesty, their time can be spent better elsewhere.
