Place Types (New)

Places SDK for Android (New) adds many place types. If you enable Places SDK for Android (New), these types are returned as part of a Place Details and Text Search response.

You must use the Place.getPlaceTypes() method to access these types. The Place.getTypes() method always returns the existing types listed on Place Types.

Table A lists the types that are used in the following ways:

  • As part of a response from Place Details and Text Search. The request must specify Place.Field.TYPES in the field list. The values in Table A are then used to populate those fields.
  • As part of a Text Search request, used as the value of the included type parameter.

Table B lists additional place type values which may also be returned as part of a Place Details and Text Search response. The request must specify Place.Field.TYPES in the field list. Values from Table B may NOT be used as part of a request.
