What do I need to know?

Over the course of 2021, we launched a new set of APIs to help you manage your Business Profile. Our new set of APIs provide you greater API consumption flexibility, and help us to release new product updates faster. In addition to the new APIs launched, we also have launched the new Business Profile Performance API. Below is the current list and past list of deprecated resources and their replacements.

What do I need to do?

Update to the new Business Profile Performance API to get insights on your business profile without any disruptions. After 2023-02-20, the API resources listed under current deprecation schedule will be unavailable.

API versions

  • Support Ended indicates that the version of the API will continue to function as expected, but may not be updated with new features or bug fixes. Support will be limited.
  • Discontinuation indicates that the version of the API will always return errors and will soon be shut down.
