How long does it for Google to publish a (new) added category?

About a few weeks ago we added a new category to a clients' Google My Business. She is wondering: how long does it take for Google to publish our changes?

 

Thank you in advance for your answer.

what category added to what business and how added?

Was the category selected from their default list of categories.

If adding a category through the dashboard it should shown up already.

 

usually any addess category will published almost instantly - unless there is any special other edit and this edits are rejected or in status being reveiwed

Hello Helmut,

Thank you for your reply.

 

I added the category 'Pedicure' in the interface where you can change everything in the Google My Business mention (through the dashboard). The category was added form the normal list.

 

Google didn't reject it yet, so I don't know if they are need to approve it.

give me a link to the listing in question (a GMaps link) so I can check "pedicure" is tied to the listing or not (yet)
