New Critics Reviews Displayed in Google Business Pages

Starting today in the US,  Critics Reviews are being displayed in Google Business Pages. Mobile display is very refined and looks great, whilst the business Knowledge Panel in search looks like an after thought and will hopefully improve design wise.

I also spotted a Quick Facts section displayed in the business info panel in desktop maps, not sure if this is new.


Starting today in the U.S., when you search on your Google app for the best spots to eat and drink, you’ll have access to reviews from top critics and best-of lists from reputable publishers.

Mobile Search

Critics Reviews Displayed - Google Business Page


Mobile search for: Best place for noodles in New York, displayed business page, but scrolling down reveals the new Critics Reviews.


Google Maps app

Critics Reviews and Ratings - Google Business Page


Selecting a business to look at, one displays critics reviews, the other more reviews from Zagat. I assume the more reviews from Zagat, is when there is only one singular source of trusted reviews at the time.

The critics reviews look a little slap dash compared to the mobile version. Lets hope this display get better with time.

Google Maps in desktop mirrors the mobile version and looks great. The quick facts may be new too, or else I have not noticed before.
