With this release, Googles has enabled developers to survey the management of their Google My Business listings through this new API.

The Google announcement on the new API of Google My Business listings has been called the Google My Business API. This API allows developers and business owners to programmatically manage locations in GMB. These are some of the things and details you can manage through this API:
  • Create business listings with their essential details.
  • State and change special hours.
  • Change the status of business locations to permanently closed.
  • create and edit business photos.
  • Select managers on the listings.
  • The ability to look for businesses through names, categories, and labels.
This API is mostly targeting large businesses that have to manage many different locations and have special hours. Marketing agencies can also found this feature useful in managing their clients. Access to the API can easily be reached through the Google Developer portal.
