Update on Google Maps Platform

Major update on the Google Maps Platform

Google has launched a major update to the Maps API platform in 2018. Google changed it to premium plans. Based on this update, every Google API should have a valid API key and Google billing account.

A new pay-as-you-go pricing plan went into effect for Maps, Routes, and Places. This new plan gives you more flexibility and control over how you use Google APIs. You can use as much or as little as you need and only pay for what you use each month.

You get a $200 credit per month and once that amount of API calls is used up, you'll start getting charged:
