What do you need to know?
*Find Place, Nearby Search and Text Search requests have different methods for determining whether a place is open.
We also want to remind you that if you don’t need all the fields for returned places, you will save money using the fields parameter in Place Details requests. In case you don’t specify at least one field with a request, or you omit the fields parameter from a request, all possible fields will be returned, and you will be billed for all data SKUs.
