How do API integrations work?
When you open an internet-connected application, data is stored and sent to a server. The server interprets, actions, and routes the data back to your device.
Imagine you’re searching Google Maps for an Italian restaurant. You search the relevant keywords in the Google Maps app and it instantly pulls up Italian restaurants near you, their business hours, contact information, and current capacity, all without visiting their website. An API enables the restaurant website and Google Maps to exchange data with each other, allowing for increased efficiency.
