Google API Client

PyPI version

This is the Python client library for Google's discovery based APIs. To get started, please see the docs folder.

These client libraries are officially supported by Google. However, the libraries are considered complete and are in maintenance mode. This means that we will address critical bugs and security issues but will not add any new features.


See the docs folder for more detailed instructions and additional documentation.

Google Cloud Platform / Google Ads

For Google Cloud Platform APIs such as Datastore, Cloud Storage or Pub/Sub, we recommend using Cloud Client Libraries for Python.

For Google Ads API, we recommend using Google Ads API Client Library for Python.


Install this library in a virtualenv using pip. virtualenv is a tool to create isolated Python environments. The basic problem it addresses is one of dependencies and versions, and indirectly permissions.

With virtualenv, it's possible to install this library without needing system install permissions, and without clashing with the installed system dependencies.


pip install virtualenv
virtualenv <your-env>
source <your-env>/bin/activate
<your-env>/bin/pip install google-api-python-client


pip install virtualenv
virtualenv <your-env>
<your-env>\Scripts\pip.exe install google-api-python-client

Supported Python Versions

Python 3.4, 3.5, 3.6 and 3.7 are fully supported and tested. This library may work on later versions of 3, but we do not currently run tests against those versions

Deprecated Python Versions
