Places product SKUs

APIs in Places include Places API, Places SDK for Android; Places SDK for iOS; Places Library, Maps JavaScript API; Geocoding API; Geolocation API; Time Zone API; and Elevation API.

About Autocomplete sessions

An Autocomplete session includes some Autocomplete requests (to retrieve suggestions on a place as the user types), and at most one Places Details request (to retrieve details about the place selected by the user). The same session token is passed to the Autocomplete and the subsequent Place Detail request. A session starts with the first Autocomplete request (which typically happens when the user starts typing). A Places Details call is made when the user has selected one of the Autocomplete suggestions. If a user does not select a suggestion, no Places Details call is made.

After a user has selected a place (ie, a Places Details call is made), you must start a new session using a new session token.

Autocomplete sessions can be generated from the following APIs:

A session token is good for one user session and should not be used for more than one user session. If you reuse a session token, the session is considered invalid and the requests are charged as if no session token was provided.

The Autocomplete requests and the Places Details requests using sessions are billed on different SKUs.

About Places Data SKUs

One or more Data SKUs are triggered for:

  • Android: each request to fetchPlace() or findCurrentPlace()
  • iOS: each call to fetchPlaceFromPlaceID: or findPlaceLikelihoodsFromCurrentLocationWithPlaceFields:
  • Web service: each Places request depending on the fields specified in the request

Data requests generate a charge in addition to the cost of the Places request. Data charges are always in tandem with the Places requests.

For the web service, these Places APIs calls support specifying the data fields to return:

For the web service, these Places APIs calls DO NOT support specifying the returned fields. These calls always return all the Places data, charging the three Places Data SKUs in addition to the charge for each API request:

Text Search requests return a list of places, but do not support specifying which fields are returned. Text Search requests return a subset of the supported data fields. You are charged for the Text Search request starting at 0.032 USD per each, as well as all of the data-type SKUs (Basic Data, Contact Data, and Atmosphere Data).

The Place – Text Search SKU is also generated by the Maps JavaScript API’s Place SearchBox widget: getPlaces() method after the user selects a place query (icon: magnifier), not a result (icon: pin), as illustrated here:

Places Details Search Box Widget Query Selection
In the results of the search box widget, after typing "pizza" in the search box, notice that pizza delivery has a magnifier icon next to it, indicating that it is a place query (and not a result).
