How frequently do the satelite images get updated?

Where am I?

Hey @Riddhim Porwal24 

Thanks for the question.  While this is a common misconception, we are not a 'mapping' app. Our technology is the grid of what3words addresses you see overlaid onto existing maps. This means that we're not able to update/make any changes to maps as they are provided by either Google or Apple Maps depending on your device. [You can see which one by checking the icon on the bottom left of the screen]

If you do want to report an error on the map, you can use the links below and hopefully they'll update it soon:

- Google Maps29

- Apple Maps112

I hope this answers your question and feel free to ask if you have any more.
