Selfies, Blurry, and Poor Quality Images To be Removed From Google Maps In The Upcoming Days

Google has updated all its criteria for its Google Maps user-contributed Policy and by this, all the selfies, blurry and poor quality images, poorly rotated images, and pictures with filters will be removed from Google Maps. Any image that contributes to disrupting the quality of Google Maps has to go now.

For this purpose, Google has released two updates that clearly show the points that count for the removal of the photo. Firstly, Google said that any photo that is centered around a person or a group of people and where the location on the map is not the primary focus will be removed. The second statement states that any blurry picture that has the use of a filter or has rotated compositions will also be removed. Simply, any picture that changes the whole layout of the location and does not show an actual sighting will be removed from Google Maps.

The above statements were highlighted by Joy Hawkins on Twitter and it shows what Google Maps is planning to make its platform more reliable and free from any harmful content.

It should also be mentioned that everyone can add their images to Google Maps if they are relevant to the location. But many people are starting to share extra and irrelevant pictures on this useful platform.

You can see people sharing their selfies and group photos of the locations. This activity doesn't highlight the location, and as a result, no one can perceive it. Blurry pictures are also not helpful as no one can see the location they searched for. This could not only make Google Maps a bad app but the location can also be ignored.

By taking these steps, Google is securing its users because no one wants an app where there are irrelevant pictures all around. So it is really good that Google Maps is going to take action against them. It will be a slow process because it will take time to remove millions of pictures from across the world but after this procedure, Google Map will be free of unwanted pictures.
