$accountId = 'your_account_id';
$locationId = 'your_location_id';

$url = 'https://mybusiness.googleapis.com/v4/accounts/'.$accountId.'/locations/'.$locationId.'/reviews';    
$ch = curl_init();
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, $url);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, true);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER, false);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_TIMEOUT, 10);
$output = curl_exec($ch);
/*If data is in xml format
$output = simplexml_load_string($output); */
$allData = json_decode(json_encode($output), TRUE); // You will get all the data

  • You have to use cron for getting data repeatedly and run this script in cron then you can store data in DB and get in phtml through block file.

You should auto-run the PHP scrip every 5 minutes containing API curl code using the cron job.
