You have until November 20, 2020, to perform the changes in your code as described below.
What do I need to know?
- utc_offset, which is returned by Place Details requests and
- opening_hours.open_now, which is returned by Place Details, Find Place, Nearby Search, Text Search requests.
These properties have been replaced as follows:
- utc_offset, by utc_offset_minutes
- opening_hours.open_now, by the isOpen() method in Place Details requests only.
Additionally, for Find Place, Nearby Search and Text Search requests, we provide alternative solutions for determining whether a place is open.
What do I need to do?
Before November 20, 2020, follow the Place Field Migration guide to make the necessary property and method substitutions and to see the alternative options for obtaining opening_hours data to prevent user experience degradation.
