Native Address Autocomplete

I spoke with the AI bot and it tells me that Glide now has address autocomplete native in the app. Has anyone successfully had address autocomplete popup when adding an address to a table? Any documentation anywhere?

No docs yet. I’ll be creating videos on a lot of the plugins within the next week or so.


Here is what the AI is telling me to do:

To enable address autocomplete in Glide, you can use the Google Places Autocomplete feature. Here are the steps to enable it:

  1. Add a Text Entry component to your app.
  2. In the Data Editor, create a new column and set the type to “Single Value”.
  3. In the “Features” section of the Text Entry component, select “Google Places Autocomplete”.
  4. In the “Data” section of the Text Entry component, select the column you created in step 2.
  5. Save your changes and preview your app.

Now, when a user types an address into the Text Entry component, Google Places Autocomplete will suggest possible matches and fill in the address automatically. You can learn more about this feature in the Glide documentation:
