Google temporarily disables the ability to post reviews on Google Maps

Google has disabled local reviews for both consumers and business owners. Some users have noticed that when trying to publish a comment on maps or reviews, the message "Any review posted right now aren't publishing live" appears. Changes also apply to new reviews.

Negative feedback about businesses that are closing down due to the spread of the virus or are experiencing difficulties is not helpful. Under normal circumstances, many companies have worked steadily. It is clear that not every business can cope with the consequences of the pandemic.

Local businesses are particularly vulnerable now, given the confusion and unrest caused by the pandemic and the closure of businesses. Google is trying to prevent the flow of feedback that may not be sufficiently true or malicious.

A similar situation is now happening in Russia at Yanjex Maps.
