Since 2015, Amazon has offered similar information through Yelp, and the information pulled from the review site is what allowed people to use their Amazon speakers to, for example, find the most popular restaurants in their area. The data from Yext is pulled directly from businesses that partner with the platform, like T-Mobile, and Rite Aid, who work with Yext to keep their data up to date.
