Step 1: Install Laravel Application

First of all, Open your command prompt and run the following command to install/download laravel fresh web application in your system(server):

composer create-project --prefer-dist laravel/laravel blog

Step 2: Get Api Key From Google

For implementing the autocomplete address in laravel, we’ll have to get the key. So, just go to the link and get the google API key.

Step 3: Create Route

We will create two routes in the web.php file. Go to app/routes/web.php file and create two below routes here :

Route::get("auto-complete", "GoogleController@index");

Step 4: Generate Controller by Command

Create a controller name GoogleController. So you need to use the below command and create Controller :

php artisan make:controller GoogleController

After successfully create controller go to app/controllers/GoogleController.php and update the following code :

namespace App\Http\Controllers;
use Illuminate\Http\Request;
class GoogleController extends Controller
    // ---------------- [ Load View ] ----------------
    public function index(Request $request) {
        return view("auto-complete");

Step 5: Create Blade view

In this step, we need to create a blade view file. Go to app/resources/views and create one file name auto-complete.blade.php :

<!doctype html>
<html lang="en">
<title>Google Autocomplete Address Example</title>
<meta charset="utf-8">
<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1, shrink-to-fit=no">
<link rel="stylesheet" href="" integrity="sha384-ggOyR0iXCbMQv3Xipma34MD+dH/1fQ784/j6cY/iJTQUOhcWr7x9JvoRxT2MZw1T" crossorigin="anonymous">
<script src="" integrity="sha256-WpOohJOqMqqyKL9FccASB9O0KwACQJpFTUBLTYOVvVU="crossorigin="anonymous"></script>
<div class="container mt-5">
<div class="row">
<div class="col-xl-6 col-lg-6 col-md-8 col-sm-12 col-12 m-auto">
<div class="card shadow">
<div class="card-header bg-primary">
<h5 class="card-title text-white"> Google Autocomplete Address</h5>
<div class="card-body">
<div class="form-group">
<label for="autocomplete"> Location/City/Address </label>
<input type="text" name="autocomplete" id="autocomplete" class="form-control" placeholder="Select Location">
<div class="form-group" id="lat_area">
<label for="latitude"> Latitude </label>
<input type="text" name="latitude" id="latitude" class="form-control">
<div class="form-group" id="long_area">
<label for="latitude"> Longitude </label>
<input type="text" name="longitude" id="longitude" class="form-control">
<div class="card-footer">
<button type="submit" class="btn btn-success"> Submit </button>
<script src="" integrity="sha384-UO2eT0CpHqdSJQ6hJty5KVphtPhzWj9WO1clHTMGa3JDZwrnQq4sF86dIHNDz0W1" crossorigin="anonymous"></script>
<script src="" integrity="sha384-JjSmVgyd0p3pXB1rRibZUAYoIIy6OrQ6VrjIEaFf/nJGzIxFDsf4x0xIM+B07jRM" crossorigin="anonymous"></script>

Add Autocomplete Script

So, in the footer section before closing the body tag, just add the below script there.

{{-- javascript code --}}
<script src=";libraries=places&amp;callback=initAutocomplete" type="text/javascript"></script>
$(document).ready(function() {
google.maps.event.addDomListener(window, 'load', initialize);
function initialize() {
var input = document.getElementById('autocomplete');
var autocomplete = new google.maps.places.Autocomplete(input);
autocomplete.addListener('place_changed', function() {
var place = autocomplete.getPlace();
// --------- show lat and long ---------------

Step 6: Run Development Server

We need to start development server. Use the php artisan serve command and start your server :

 php artisan serve
 If you want to run the project diffrent port so use this below command 
 php artisan serve --port=8080  

Now we are ready to run our example so run bellow command to quick run.
