Do more with Google Maps Places integrations - No Code.

Add the world's best real-time location sharing into your application or USSD.

Location powered distribution.

When it comes to querying for information on places, Google Places is your best option. 

By inputting your search details, Google Places instantaneously executes the search and returns to you a result or a list of results, based on the type of search you wanted to conduct.

There are various types of search options available for users to choose from. These include: 

  • Find a Place - This search option requests a text input from the user for example a phone number, name or address and returns the coordinates of the places.
  • Text Search - This search option returns the details of a place or places based on the user’s input. 
    For example, a user could search for “coffee place” and Google Places will return a list of places matching the search input and provide information on each location such as address, photos of the place and a description of the place e.g. it is a residential neighborhood.  
  • Nearby Search - This search option allows users to refine their search by providing specific keywords to search against. In addition to this, you are prompted to provide the search radius for executing your search from a specific point. E.g. Search for churches within a 2 km radius of your location or a location you specify.
