As you might have seen announced on our Google Developers blog, the deprecation policies associated with many of Google’s APIs are changing. We want to highlight the specific way this affects YouTube API developers.
As of today, our YouTube API deprecation policy states:
- required by law or third party relationship (including if there is a change in applicable law or relationship), or
- doing so could create a security risk or substantial economic or material technical burden.
Please note that while the deprecation policy listed above is current as of the date of this blog post, the definitive version of the policy can always be found in our Terms of Service.
