    You cannot delete reviews as a business owner.

  1. The instructions are wonderful and clear here but contextually, I’m pissed I can’t see the review I wrote unless I download the googlemaps app. If I was able to write it from a mobile browser and see everyone else’s reviews from a mobile browser, I should be able to also see my own review from the mobile browser too. Wtf. I don’t have unlimited space for apps, I cannot download an app for every little thing. Google COULD change it to be accessible, but they won’t, bc it’s intentional. So f em

    • It’s kind of like our vision/sight. We can see other people with our eyes, we can see our body parts with our own eyes, but we can’t have an objective view of ourself without an app ( camera, mirror).

    • You don’t need an app. Open a browser and Google search any location that you know you’ve reviewed. Switch to Desktop View. Click the location on the map and then scroll the left pane to your review. Under your name is a link with the # of reviews you’ve written. Click it to see them all.
