This page covers how to use the SerpAPI search APIs within LangChain. It is broken into two parts: installation and setup, and then references to the specific SerpAPI wrapper.

Installation and Setup​

  • Install requirements with pip install google-search-results
  • Get a SerpAPI api key and either set it as an environment variable (SERPAPI_API_KEY)



There exists a SerpAPI utility which wraps this API. To import this utility:

from langchain_community.utilities import SerpAPIWrapper
API Reference:SerpAPIWrapper

For a more detailed walkthrough of this wrapper, see this notebook.


You can also easily load this wrapper as a Tool (to use with an Agent). You can do this with:

from langchain.agents import load_tools
tools = load_tools(["serpapi"])
API Reference:load_tools

For more information on this, see this page
