  • Get an API key at

  • Enable Google Map SDK for each platform.

    • Go to Google Developers Console.
    • Choose the project that you want to enable Google Maps on.
    • Select the navigation menu and then select "Google Maps".
    • Select "APIs" under the Google Maps menu.
    • To enable Google Maps for Android, select "Maps SDK for Android" in the "Additional APIs" section, then select "ENABLE".
    • To enable Google Maps for iOS, select "Maps SDK for iOS" in the "Additional APIs" section, then select "ENABLE".
    • Make sure the APIs you enabled are under the "Enabled APIs" section.

For more details, see Getting started with Google Maps Platform.


  1. Set the minSdkVersion in android/app/build.gradle:
android {
    defaultConfig {
        minSdkVersion 20

This means that app will only be available for users that run Android SDK 20 or higher.

  1. Make sure you set the compileSdkVersion in your "android/app/build.gradle" file as per your preference. Mine is 31:
android {
 compileSdkVersion 31

  1. Specify your API key in the application manifest android/app/src/main/AndroidManifest.xml:
<manifest ...
  <application ...
    <meta-data android:name=""
  1. Add the following to your "" file:
  1. Make sure you replace all the android. dependencies to their AndroidX counterparts (a full list can be found Android migration guide).


To set up, specify your API key in the application delegate ios/Runner/AppDelegate.m:

Specify your API key in the application delegate ios/Runner/AppDelegate.swift:

#include "AppDelegate.h"
#include "GeneratedPluginRegistrant.h"
#import "GoogleMaps/GoogleMaps.h"

@implementation AppDelegate

- (BOOL)application:(UIApplication *)application
    didFinishLaunchingWithOptions:(NSDictionary *)launchOptions {
  [GMSServices provideAPIKey:@"YOUR KEY HERE"];
  [GeneratedPluginRegistrant registerWithRegistry:self];
  return [super application:application didFinishLaunchingWithOptions:launchOptions];

Or in your swift code, specify your API key in the application delegate ios/Runner/AppDelegate.swift:

import UIKit
import Flutter
import GoogleMaps
@objc class AppDelegate: FlutterAppDelegate {
  override func application(
    _ application: UIApplication,
    didFinishLaunchingWithOptions launchOptions: [UIApplication.LaunchOptionsKey: Any]?
  ) -> Bool {
    GMSServices.provideAPIKey("YOUR KEY HERE")
    GeneratedPluginRegistrant.register(with: self)
    return super.application(application, didFinishLaunchingWithOptions: launchOptions)

On iOS you'll need to add the following entries to your Info.plist file (located under ios/Runner) in order to access the device's location.

Simply open your Info.plist file and add the following:

<string>This app needs access to location when open.</string>
<string>This app needs access to location when in the background.</string>
<string>This app needs access to location when open and in the background.</string>

In addition, you need to add the Background Modes capability to your XCode project (Project > Signing and Capabilties > "+ Capability" button) and select Location Updates.g>This app needs access to location when open and in the background.

Opt-in to the embedded views preview by adding a boolean property to the app's Info.plist file with the key io.flutter.embedded_views_preview and the value YES.



Basic usage

You can use GooglePlacePicker by pushing to a new page using Navigator, OR put as a child of any widget. When the user picks a place on the map, it will return result to 'getAddress' with CompleteAddress type.

import 'package:flutter/material.dart';
import 'package:google_place_picker/google_place_picker.dart';

// ...
        builder: (context) => GooglePlacePicker(
          apiKey: "YOU GOOGLE MAPS API KEY",
          getAddress: (CompleteAddress completeAddress) {
            /// Don't use Navigator.of(context).pop() it's built-in


Searching for a place feature needs a paid google map api key. With free key map and picking a place feature will work correctly without any error. But searching for a place feature will not work.
