    Looks like Google Maps is CHANGING AGAIN with a New NAME and a ton of changes, one of which will require you to set up BILLING in order to have MAP API's.

    Streamlined products to create new location-based experiences

    We’re simplifying our 18 individual APIs into three core products—Maps, Routes and Places, to make it easier for you to find, explore and add new features to your apps and sites. And, these new updates will work with your existing code—no changes required.

    One pricing plan, free support, and a single console

    We’ve heard that you want simple, easy to understand pricing that gives you access to all our core APIs. That’s one of the reasons we merged our Standard and Premium plans to form one pay-as-you go pricing plan for our core products. With this new plan, developers will receive the first $200 of monthly usage for free. We estimate that most of you will have monthly usage that will keep you within this free tier. With this new pricing plan you’ll pay only for the services you use each month with no annual, up-front commitments, termination fees or usage limits. And we’re rolling out free customer support for all. In addition, our products are now integrated with Google Cloud Platform Console to make it easier for you to track your usage, manage your projects, and discover new innovative Cloud products.

    Scale easily as you grow

    Beginning June 11, you’ll need a valid API key and a Google Cloud Platform billing account to access our core products. Once you enable billing, you will gain access to your $200 of free monthly usage to use for our Maps, Routes, and Places products. As your business grows or usage spikes, our plan will scale with you. And, with Google Maps’ global infrastructure, you can scale without thinking about capacity, reliability, or performance. We’ll continue to partner with Google programs that bring our products to nonprofits, startups, crisis response, and news media organizations. We’ve put new processes in place to help us scale these programs to hundreds of thousands of organizations and more countries around the world.

    This is IMPORTANT for anyone that is currently using any Google Maps functionality in any software/apps, or anywhere in general that requires you to add a Google Maps API key. If you don't act on this, your Maps functionality is going to stop working!

    This effects maps functionality in Showcase (SC), Article Management System (AMS), User Blogs System (UBS) and Review Management System (RMS)

    Directly from Google...
