The Cloud Natural Language API provides a set of features for analyzing unstructured text. Across these scenarios, we enable you to pay only for what you use with no upfront commitments. The API supports the following features:

Pricing units

The Cloud Natural Language API is priced using units of measurement known as text records. A text record may contain up to 1,000 Unicode characters within the text content sent to the API for evaluation. Text in excess of these 1,000 characters counts as additional record(s). Prices are expressed in dollars per 1,000 text records.
