Introducing Google My Business API v3.1

Google Employee
# 1

A few months ago, we released Google My Business API v3.0. Features included in v3.0  enabled developers to build applications that let business owners read and respond to Google reviews, and provide richer business information to Google.

 

Today, we’ve added several new features to enhance the Google My Business API experience for both developers and end-users. Using the new Google My Business API v3.1, developers can:

  • Subscribe and manage push notifications for new customer reviews on Google
  • Provide additional rich business information with URL and Enum attributes (i.e. attributes that can have multiple values)*
  • Get categories supported by Google My Business
  • Get the Google Maps URL for verified locations
  • Get more detailed listing states to identify when locations are published, pending review, or pending verification
  • Identify permanently closed locations that can be reopened vs. those that can’t
  • Determine which locations the user has access to, and which they don’t

*Menu URL, payment methods, and other Enum attributes will be made available in the API over the next few weeks

 

Full documentation for this release can be found at:

https://developers.google.com/my-business/reference/rest/index

 

Additionally, we’re extending support of v2 of the API until December 5, 2016; the deprecation schedule can be found here. We still encourage you to migrate to v3 as soon as possible.

Questions or feedback? Contact the API team on the Google My Business API Forum.

 

Thanks,

The Google My Business API Team

Hi @Ben Fisher,

 

Access to Insights for business listings is not currently supported by the Google My Business API and we don’t have a timeline for when this functionality will be included. We’ll keep you updated on both this board and the Google Developers site. Please stay tuned and thanks for your patience!

 

Thanks,

The Google My Business API team
