What are third party APIs?

A third-party API is an API provided by a third party (usually a company such as Facebook, Twitter, or Google) that allows you to access their functionality through JavaScript and use it on your website. One of the most obvious examples is using the Maps API to display custom maps on your pages.

As the name suggests, a third-party API is a special program that links the functions of different applications together. These are provided by third parties, usually (but not necessarily) large companies, to allow you to access their data or software functionality on your website or application.

For example, ridesharing apps like Uber integrate the map functionality of apps like Google Maps to locate rides.
