# Enable Location Messages To show location messages Chat SDK needs to use the Google static maps API. You need to generate a new API key: [Google Static Maps API](https://developers.google.com/maps/documentation/static-maps/) And add it during Chat SDK configuration or when using `quickStart`. ``` ChatSDK.builder() .setGoogleMaps("Your key") ``` >**Note:** > You need to enable billing in your google cloud console or else you will not be able to view map images in your messages, For more information visit the [Google usage and billing support page](https://developers.google.com/places/web-service/usage-and-billing#important-enable-billing) You can disable location messages using the `builder().locationMessagesEnabled(false)` option.
