Hi Airbnb Hosts,
Has anyone received Airbnb’s message below requesting an appointment for their "Virtual Home Review? IMO, It’s less about helping hosts get back on their feet post COVID-19 and more “we’ve verified a host’s listing so if a party/shooting breaks out, it’s not Airbnb’s fault.”
If anyone has interviewed, please share your experience. Perhaps I’m a bit jaded.
Stay safe and healthy,

We hope you and your family are safe and healthy as we all work to navigate the COVID-19 crisis in our communities. While Airbnb has developed initiatives (https://airbnb.com/covid) to minimize the impact to your business today, we are also exploring programs to help hosts get back on their feet once COVID-19 is less of a threat in our communities.
One program involves verifying listings in order to offer both hosts and guests more peace of mind once we start traveling again. As a successful host, we’d like to partner with you first, before launching the program to all hosts later this year.
If you’re able to safely access your listing and are interested in participating, please use the link below to schedule a 20 minute virtual home review with our team.

If now is not the right time, we completely understand, and look forward to working with you when the timing is better. More details about the program are available at: https://abnb.co/videofaqs
Thanks, and stay safe,
The Airbnb Team
