Why do I need Google Maps API Key?
Google Maps Platform has made API key mandatory for some regions and scenarios.
You need your own API key if you are on a Basic plan or "User-Supplied Key" plan.
Please refer to the Pricing for details on the plans.
For plans where 'Jivrus Managed key' are applicable, you do not need to supply a key
Without an API key, maps in this region will appear with a "for development purposes only" watermark in the darkened background (see the sample map below). Also, the quota limitations from Google are attached to the API key.
Steps to generate API key
Go to the Google Cloud Platform Console.
From the Project drop-down menu, select or create the project on which you want to add an API key.
From the Navigation menu (top left corner), select APIs & Services > Credentials.
On the Credentials page, click Create credentials > API key.
The dialog named API key created will display your newly created API key.
Copy that API key and use that.
You must enable billing on the GCP project. Please see How to Enable Billing
