Timezones added

We've added information about time zones to the Geocoding / Reverse Geocoding / Address Autocomplete / Place Details results. The time zone data includes names, time zone offsets for standard and daylight saving times, and abbreviations. Here is an example of a time zone object:

  "timezone": {
    "name": "Europe/London",
    "offset_STD": "+00:00",
    "offset_STD_seconds": 0,
    "offset_DST": "+01:00",
    "offset_DST_seconds": 3600,
    "abbreviation_STD": "GMT",
    "abbreviation_DST": "BST"

You can test the functionality with Geocoding API Playground >>
