Hi, can someone tell me how can someone, when they take a photo near my business, get a notification to upload that photo to google maps. Thanks.

Hi Ivan

If the individual has the Google Photos app installed with back up & sync turned on and Location History turned on then when they use Google Maps to add a review (under Contributions) they will be given the option to upload that photo to your business listing.

I do not know if this is available in iOS as yet - it is certainly available to Android users.

Thank you for your time. But I do not think you need a app for that. When I
take a photo from my android phone I get a notification to add that photo
to Google maps to the business next to mine.

hi Ivan

The notification you receive must come from an app - most likely Google Photos. The information I provided above came from this help article: https://support.google.com/maps/answer/2622947?co=GENIE.Platform%3DAndroid&hl=en

Additionally, Local Guides are given a few more prompts to add photos as part of their program.
