Hi I want to get the static map for my locations. Is this available with the GMB API?

My second question is. Can we get the extern reviews "Reviews from the Web" via GMB API?

Hi @Iliyan H,

 

The Google My Business API does not have support for displaying a static map or any type of map. You can check out the Google Static Maps API to see if it’s the right fit for you and make sure you direct your further questions to their Support page.

 

The Google My Business API does not support fetching external reviews. Please check out this Google Webmaster Central Blog post for more information about “Reviews from the web”.

 

Thanks,

Terry
