We announced a developer preview of the Classroom API in June, and more than a thousand developers and schools have opted-in to use it. Today, we’re ending the developer preview, so all developers can develop with the API. The end of the preview also means that all Google Apps for Education users can authorize third-party applications to access their Classroom data, unless their admin decides to restrict access in the Admin Console. Admins can also restrict API access at the organization unit level.
In addition, the Classroom API is now supported in Apps Script, which lets anyone write custom scripts or publish add-ons for Docs, Sheets, and Forms. Check out the Quick Start to learn more. And if you want more information about the API, check out our help center, the developer documentation, or watch this video for a high-level overview of the API and share button.
Use the #withclassroom hashtag on Twitter or G+ to let us know if you’re integrating with the API. Google Apps administrators, feel free to contact support with any questions, and developers, you can use Stack Overflow to post technical issues, using the tag google-classroom.
As always, we look forward to hearing your feedback to ensure we’re addressing your top needs.
