Difference Between Places API And Places API

I was using Places API in my android app, recently Google said it's going to deprecate so I migrated to new version, but now it's decreasing from my credit (see attached image). What is difference between Places API & Place API for Android? I found Place API for Android is free and it's not charging me. Is the latter one still active or it's going to deprecate?

Generally how can I have Google Places Auto Complete for free?

First up, I hope you know that you can bump your Places API quota from 1,000 queries/day up to 100,000 queries/day just by verifying your identity? This doesn't cost anything. And if even 100,000 QPD are not enough, you can purchase a Google Places API for Business license.

But to actually answer your question, I'm not aware of any alternative that's both good and unlimited. The main competitors with worldwide coverage are:
