 We just have received an email from Google that some of the methods are being deprecated. Will it effect Taxibooking?

Here is the brief we received

We are writing to let you know that on November 20, 2019, the PlaceResult.opening_hours.open_now and PlaceResult.utc_offset properties in the Google Maps JavaScript API’s Places Library are being deprecated and replaced by new properties and methods.

What do I need to know?

Currently, the Maps JavaScript API’s Places Library exposes in its PlaceResult object the properties:

utc_offset, which is returned on Place Details requests and
opening_hours.open_now, which is returned on Place Details, Find Place, Nearby Search and Text Search requests.

On November 20, 2019, we are deprecating these properties to bring consistency across Places API clients on different platforms (the Maps JavaScript API, the Places SDK for Android, the Places SDK for iOS).

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.

As a result, starting November 20, 2020, the Maps JavaScript API’s Places Library will stop accepting the properties in the fields parameter and stop returning them in response to such requests. Instead, developers will receive the ‘Unsupported field name’ error when using these properties in the fields parameter and the value `undefined` when reading these properties from the PlaceResult object in the response.


Please respond

Hi Mike,
this doesn't concern the operation of Taxi Booking because it is only related to business opening hours which we don't use.
Also, this will take effect in November 2020 and shouldn't be alarming to you a year in advance ;)
We are also receiving these notifications from Google and we take care of any upcoming issues in advance so it doesn't affect (or affects as less as possible) our clients.

Anyway, thank you for forwarding this to us as this ensures that we won't miss anything that is important.

Kind regards.
