JavaScript Requests : Google URL shortener Deprecation


The last lesson (#12, Requests) requires the user to have Google URL Shortener API keys. However, the Google URL Shortener doc linked in the beginning of the lesson for Google Developers gives a notification that the service and support will start to be discontinued in April 2018.

The workaround for users is to start using their new Firebase Dynamic Links.

This may soon be an issue for users if it is not already (just as an FYI).

Thank you,


Thank you so much for pointing this out, Ben! We’ll get right on it.
