Public Methods

public abstract PendingResult<PlaceLikelihoodBuffer> getCurrentPlace (GoogleApiClient client, PlaceFilter filter)

Returns an estimate of the place where the device is currently known to be located.

Generates a PlaceLikelihoodBuffer based on the device's last estimated location. Only places which match the given filter will be returned. If the filter requests only coarse place types, results may be obtained at lower latency and power cost, especially over repeated calls.

The returned values may be obtained by means of a network lookup. The results are a best guess and are not guaranteed to be meaningful or correct.

This API requires the calling application to have the ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION permission.

Access to this method is subject to quota restrictions.

Parameters
client
filter filtering criteria for the results. If the filter is null, then default filtering parameters are used (see PlaceFilter).
Returns
  • the PlaceLikelihoodBuffer, which may be empty if the place or location is not known or does not match the filtering criteria.

public abstract PendingResult<Status> reportDeviceAtPlace (GoogleApiClient client, PlaceReport report)

Reports that the device is currently at a particular place.
