Update your Google Business Profile API integration before critical endpoints are disabled. Review the deprecation schedule and instructions to avoid disruptions starting in April 2022.
The Business Profile Performance API is now launched! Migration work is required.

Deprecation schedule

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. Below is a list of APIs we will disable and their replacements.

What do I need to do?

Update to new endpoints to avoid disruptions. Starting April 30, 2022, the following four API methods will return errors with increasing frequency, ramping up to 100% shut down within 30 days. You will start observing errors while continuing usage for the remaining deprecated API endpoints starting April 30, 2022 as well. The error responses for these API endpoints will increase more gradually until the V4 APIs will be no longer available.

API versions

The table below lists the specific dates for each applicable API resource. We encourage you to migrate to the newest version as soon as feasible after its release.
  • 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 begin returning errors and will soon be shut down.
