The Google Places API has been seeing a constant barrage of updates this year. It could be a great new source of revenue for Google, and it's great for businesses (except for this guy). That's why it's super important for developers to stay in the know in regards to changes coming to the Places API.
The Google Places API product lead, Justin Chu, recently spoke with Google's Luke Mahe during a Google hangout hosted from Sydney. In the Hangout, Chu goes over all the new features that are hitting the Places API.
It's a short conversation, but Places API developers should be able to get plenty out of it. They also have plenty to look forward to in the future as Google continues to expand the Google Places API.
