The mechanism that 56 used to switch to V4 is Shield experiments, which
might be disabled in your builds (either explicitly or implicitly
because they're not official builds).

429 is the error I was seeing on Ubuntu until we got their API quota
limits increased. So that's likely the issue here too.

To test that hypothesis, you could try to see if there's a time during
the day when it works. I think I got it to work on Ubuntu (prior to the
quota increase) in the early morning.

Of course, the real fix is to either find the Project ID for the key
you're using or create a new API key / project and get that whitelisted
by Google.
