Hello Google Maps Platform Developers,
You have until November 20, 2020 to perform the changes in your code as described below.
We have notified owners of API projects which our records indicate are requesting these properties in Place Details and Find Place requests or might be reading them from PlaceResult object returned in the response from Place Details, Find Place, Nearby Search or Text Search requests.
utc_offset, which is returned in Place Details response
opening_hours.open_now, which is returned in Place Details, Find Place, Nearby Search and Text Search responses
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.
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.
Thank you for choosing Google Maps Platform.
The Google Maps Platform Team
