#' Google Distance
#'
#' The Google Maps Distance Matrix API is a service that provides travel distance
#' and time for a matrix of origins and destinations, based on the recommended
#' route between start and end points.
#'
#'
#' @param origins Origin locations as either a one or two column data.frame, a
#' list of unnamed elements, each element is either a numeric vector of lat/lon
#' coordinates, an address string or a place_id, or a vector of a pair of lat / lon coordinates
#' @param destinations destination locations as either a one or two column data.frame, a
#' list of unnamed elements, each element is either a numeric vector of lat/lon
#' coordinates, an address string or place_id, or a vector of a pair of lat / lon coordinates
#' @param mode \code{string} One of 'driving', 'walking', 'bicycling' or 'transit'.
#' @inheritParams google_directions
#' @param transit_routing_preference \code{vector} strings - one of 'less_walking' and
#' 'fewer_transfers'. specifies preferences for transit routes. Only valid for
#' transit directions.
#' @return Either list or JSON string of the distance between origins and destinations
#'
#' @inheritSection google_geocode API use and limits
