The Places API is a service that returns information about places using HTTP requests. Places are defined within this API as establishments, geographic locations, or prominent points of interest.

There are five types of requests available within the API. They are:

  • Place Search which returns a list of places based on a user’s location or search string.
  • Place details that gives a detailed info about a specific place, with user reviews included.
  • Place photos grants access to the millions of place-related photos kept in Google’s Place database.
  • Place Autocomplete is there to automatically fill in the name or address of a place as users type.
  • Query Autocomplete gives a query prediction service for text-based geographic searches, returning suggested queries as users type.
