How to&Answers:

In Android we can restrict in this way:

Add AutoCompletionFilter in you code instead passing null


To restrict google places autocomplement to Australia.

AutocompleteFilter filter = 
    new AutocompleteFilter.Builder().setCountry("AU").build();

The country to restrict results to. This should be a ISO 3166-1 Alpha-2 country code (case insensitive). If this is not set, no country filtering will take place.
Refer this link for different country codes https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO_3166-1_alpha-2

@Saipraneeth Nandi Correct the line your code as below:

mPlaceArrayAdapter = 
    new PlaceArrayAdapter(this, 
                            android.R.layout.simple_list_item_1,
                            LAT_LNG_BOUNDS,
                            filter);

Answer:

Just add this to your query you are sending to google places api:

components=country:your_country_code

You can find country code here.

Example:

https://maps.googleapis.com/maps/api/place/autocomplete/json?input=bhubaneshwar&components=country:in&sensor=false&key=your_key

Let me know if this is what you want.

Thank you

Answer:

private String country = "IN";

Intent intent = new Autocomplete.IntentBuilder(AutocompleteActivityMode.FULLSCREEN, Arrays.asList(Place.Field.ADDRESS, Place.Field.LAT_LNG))
                .setCountry(country)
                .build(YourActivity.this);
startActivityForResult(intent, 214);

Get Country Code & Latitude Longitude

Answer:

Try this code in the URL builder

String countryCode = ((TelephonyManager) context.getSystemService(
Context.TELEPHONY_SERVICE)).getNetworkCountryIso();
urlBuilder.addQueryParameter("components", "country:" + countryCode);
