Reminder—set-up a Google Cloud Platform Console account

On May 2, we announced changes including our new simplified Maps, Routes, and Places products as well as a new pricing plan to make our products easier to use and more scalable as you grow. Here’s a quick reminder of the three steps you need to take prior to June 11:

  1. Set up a Google Cloud Platform Console account with your billing information.
  2. Ensure that you are using a valid API key to access our core products.
  3. Try the new features and learn more about how to optimize your API usage in our Optimization Guide.

To provide you with an additional month of lead time, our new terms and pricing won’t go into effect until July 16. If you have questions about the changes and the new pricing plan, please review the Important Updates page in our documentation. It will help you familiarize yourself with the changes and includes a new pricing calculator to help you understand your usage.
