Menu Photo’s Now Displayed in Knowledge Panel


Google is now displaying photo’s from the Menu in the knowledge panel for business pages that have added images to their business pages.

Google does provide specific photo sections for restaurants / cafes in their Manage Photo’s.

There is a prompt to take a photo and add, however I have not found any photos from the menu being displayed that are publicly uploaded. So I assume any publicly uploaded photo’s added are currently displayed as all photo’s and not within the Menu section.

Currently only displayed in Mobile
