This summary of changes is for customers who are renewing a previous
Maps API for Business or Maps APIs for Work license with the
new Google Maps APIs Premium Plan, which became available in January 2016.
For more information about the Premium Plan,
see Premium Plan Overview.
|Scaled access to APIs
||You now have access to our suite of services
with a single usage quota.
|Maps APIs Credits
||Base prices include a common pool of Maps APIs Credits; all requests to APIs consume credits
from this pool.
||Requests to Maps APIs consume Maps APIs Credits;
usage rates vary by API.
||The free daily QPD limit for web service requests is a shared
100,000 requests, instead of separate limits for each API.
||QPS has increased from 10 QPS to 50 QPS for all web service
APIs, including the Places API Web Service. Learn how to
optimize web service usage
or request a QPS increase.
||Client-side requests are now charged the same usage rate as web service requests.
Maps APIs for Work and Maps API for Business offerings has been
replaced by map loads. Map loads
consume Maps APIs Credits only when a map is actually instantiated on a page.
||Both client-side and server-side requests for the Google Places API, including Place
Autocomplete, consume Maps APIs Credits.
||All Google Maps APIs will be automatically provisioned with an API project in
Google API Console. You'll receive both a Google API Console project ID and a client ID.
||You can now use an API key with any Maps API. Or, you can choose to use a client ID with any
Maps API, except the Google Places API, Google Maps Roads API, Google Maps Geolocation API,
and Mobile SDKs.
||You no longer need to have the Google Maps Mobile SDK for Work enabled on your
Google API Console project to access premium mobile features. You can now access these features
in the Google Maps Android API and the Google Maps SDK for iOS.
|Dynamic library for Android
||With the Google Maps Android API, you can now also use the dynamic library for Android
instead of only the static library.
||Google Maps APIs Premium Plan includes the same 24-hour
technical support you have now.
||Google Maps APIs Premium Plan is backed by the same
SLA you have now.
