Capstone Project with GTrendsR

I am doing the Analyze Data with R Capstone Project. However, I cannot get the GTrendsR package to work. When I run my search query, I get:

Error in interest_over_time(widget, comparison_item, tz) : Status code was not 200. Returned status code:429

I’ve found this thread indicating others are having a similar issue:

Are others having this issue? Is this an old assignment that hasn’t been updated in 2023/2024 since the issue started or is there a fix I can try?

And if this is likely an external issue - is there an alternative package I should try? Or a different Capstone altogether?

Thank you!!
