Google Will Block Access To Its Autocomplete API On August 10

Jul 26

An anonymous reader writes with news reported by Venture Beat that Google will be discontinuing developer access to its unofficial Autocomplete API, as of August 10 of this year. . A snippet from the article: Google currently supports more than 80 APIs that developers can use to integrate Google services and data into their applications. The company also has unsupported and unpublished APIs which people outside the company have discovered and leveraged. One of those is the Autocomplete API. The company says it is making this move “in the interest of maintaining the integrity of autocomplete as part of Search,” that it wants to “ensure that users experience autocomplete as it was designed to be used,” and finally that “this provides the best user experience for both services.” I’m sure many will disagree.
