In May Google announced new tools to help businesses during the pandemic. One of the features announced was online classes and online bookings.

Now it appears this new feature is being tested in the Google My Business platform. Google is adding a new video button to the platform to enable businesses to hold virtual appointments and online classes. They have also added new business attributes including: online classes, online appointments and online estimates. 

Currently it looks as though you will need to be partnered with a business that’s part of the Reserve with Google program. This program allows specific partner businesses, such as Booksy, to integrate the booking feature into Google my Business. 

Google hasn’t made these new features very clear. But right now it seems as though you will need to set up an account with one of the Reserve with Google partners to access these features.
