GMB Testing "View previous posts on Google" Link in Bottom of Knowledge Panel

Just noticed that Google is testing out a "View previous posts on Google" at the bottom of the local knowledge panel when a listing has no live Google Posts.

Anyone else seeing this?

It's a different experience on mobile, when you select 'more about' you see the older post at the bottom of the business listing when you click through.

This one dates back to February....note it appears under "Overview" and not "Posts"

I've been seeing that for my clients. Question. How does Google decide when it's a previous and not current post? I just put one up, and Google has it as previous.

Theoretically it should change to a "previous" post after seven days. Or longer if it's an "event" post.

Did you create a post and it went to previous instantly?
