The Google Maps APIs team are keen to ensure that our customers and developer community has the most up to date and useful information about using our APIs. With that goal in mind, we’ve added RSS feeds to the Release Notes for all the Maps and Places APIs.
Until now, if you wanted to see news about our releases, you’d need to visit individual API release notes pages periodically. We don't typically announce bug-fix or other small releases via the blog or social media but these are often critical for segments of our developer community.
You can now subscribe to individual API feeds and receive updates automatically when release notes are published. We'll continue to publish all Release Notes on the website as well. Feeds available today:
Google Maps Android API
Google Maps SDK for iOS
Google Maps Directions API
Google Maps Distance Matrix API
Google Places API for Android
Google Places API for iOS
Google Maps Android API Premium Plan
Google Maps SDK for iOS Premium Plan
I’ve been a technical writer at Google since 2013. I love my job because it gives me the opportunity to play with code and words, and to make them play nicely with each other. Maps are beautiful, and the docs help people weave stories around geography and places.
I’ll be at I/O next week, so I hope to see you there at our Geo sandbox (just look for the bus). Happy mapping!
