Geocode was not successful

  • Issue description:

I’m using the Google Maps app. When entering an address of any kind I get the error “Geocode was not successful for the following reason: REQUEST_DENIED”. What can I do to fix this? My first thought was that there’s something wrong with my API key, but I can only view this screen after entering my API key so it must’ve been approved.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

It means that you didn’t enable the Geocoding API in your Google API settings.
