How to get PlaceID from name, or lat, long in Android?

This my code:

Geocoder geocoder = new Geocoder(this, Locale.getDefault());
List<Address> addresses = geocoder.getFromLocationName(text, 10);
test.clear();
for (int i = 0; i < addresses.size(); i++) {
Address address = addresses.get(i);
for (int j=0;j<address.getMaxAddressLineIndex();j++) {
test.add(address.getAddressLine(j) + ", " + address.getCountryName());
// address.getLatitude();
// address.getLatitude();
}
}


But I can't find something like address.getPlaceID().

Maybe I use another API get PlaceID from name, or lat, long from above code. Thanks!

Answer

Look at this docs. You will get the lat,long,name for the Address and then call this below google api

https://maps.googleapis.com/maps/api/place/nearbysearch/json?location=-33.8670522,151.1957362&radius=500&types=food&name=cruise&key=YOUR_API_KEY

You will get a response like this

{
  "html_attributions" : [],
  "results" : [
    {
      "geometry" : {
        "location" : {
          "lat" : -33.870775,
          "lng" : 151.199025
        }
      },
      ...
      "place_id" : "ChIJrTLr-GyuEmsRBfy61i59si0",
      ...
    }
  ],
  "status" : "OK"
}

For there you will get the place-id.
