Google Play Product API

Our Google Play Product API allows you to scrape SERP results from Google Play. The API is accessed through the following endpoint: /search?engine=google_play_product. A user may query the following: https://serpapi.com/search?engine=google_play_product utilizing a GET request. Head to the playground for a live and interactive demo.

Search Query

product_id

Required

Parameter defines the ID of a product you want to get the results for.

Localization

gl

Optional

Parameter defines the country to use for the Google Play search. It's a two-letter country code. (e.g., us (default) for the United States, uk for United Kingdom, or fr for France). You can find the full list of Google Play country availability here: Google Play Countries. Afterwards, head to the Google countries page for a two-letter country code.

hl

Optional

Parameter defines the language to use for the Google Play search. It's a two-letter language code. (e.g., en (default) for English, es for Spanish, or fr for French) Head to the Google languages for a full list of supported Google languages.

Google Play Categories

store

Required

Parameter defines the type of Google Play store. There are five types in total: apps (default), movies, tv, books and audiobooks store.

Tv Store Parameters

season_id

Optional

Parameter defines the ID of a season you want to get the results for. It should be used only when store parameter is set to tv. e.g. store=tv.

Reviews Parameters

all_reviews

Optional

Parameter is used for retriving all reviews of a product. It can be set to true or false (default).

num

Optional

Parameter defines the maximum number of reviews to return. (e.g., 40 (default) returns 40 reviews, 80 returns 80 reviews, and 100 returns 100 reviews). Maximum number of reviews you can return per search is 199.
It should be used only when all_reviews parameter is set to true.

next_page_token

Optional

Parameter defines the next page token. It is used for retrieving the next page results.
It should be used only when all_reviews parameter is set to true.

Serpapi Parameters

engine

Required

Set parameter to google_play_product to use the Google Play Product API engine.

no_cache

Optional

Parameter will force SerpApi to fetch the Google Play Product results even if a cached version is already present. A cache is served only if the query and all parameters are exactly the same. Cache expires after 1h. Cached searches are free, and are not counted towards your searches per month. It can be set to false (default) to allow results from the cache, or true to disallow results from the cache. no_cache and async parameters should not be used together.

async

Optional

Parameter defines the way you want to submit your search to SerpApi. It can be set to false (default) to open an HTTP connection and keep it open until you got your search results, or true to just submit your search to SerpApi and retrieve them later. In this case, you'll need to use our Searches Archive API to retrieve your results. async and no_cache parameters should not be used together. async should not be used on accounts with Ludicrous Speed enabled.

api_key

Required

Parameter defines the SerpApi private key to use.

output

Optional

Parameter defines the final output you want. It can be set to json (default) to get a structured JSON of the results, or html to get the raw html retrieved.

API Results

JSON Results

JSON output includes structured data for Apps store, Audiobooks store, Books store, Movies store, TV store, and Reviews results.

A search status is accessible through search_metadata.status. It flows this way: Processing -> Success || Error. If a search has failed, error will contain an error message. search_metadata.id is the search ID inside SerpApi.

HTML Results

HTML output is useful to debug JSON results or support features not supported yet by SerpApi. HTML output gives you the raw HTML results from Google.
This API does not have html response when showing all reviews, just a text. search_metadata.prettify_html_file contains prettified version of the result. It is displayed in the playground.

Example with store: appsproduct_id: com.google.android.youtube

Example with store: apps, product_id: com.google.android.youtube

Maybe try a graded plan system, or an option for customers to select (bundle, maybe?) and pay for the options they need.",

Primarily, I have an issue with the fact that I have now twice cancelled my Premium service. Then it just turns back on and each time, it hides where to cancel that. Secondly, in the last couple of weeks that I've been glued to a certain event, the app crashes, freezes, and is very temperamental. Scrolling function (especially for a disabled person) is impossible. A FF/RW of 10-30 seconds would be 👍.",
