Search for places, enabling place discovery, location sharing, and geo-tagging. Add location awareness to your app. Understand people's current place, and access information about it, including photos and ratings.

Essential Guides


With the Places Search API, you can search for millions of places worldwide, and retrieve place-related details like the number of checkins, ratings, and addresses.

Current Place

The Current Place API takes raw location signals and returns an array of current place candidates along with confidence level estimates—that the user is at any of those places.

Place Information

The Place Information API allows you to retrieve place-related information for a given place ID.
