I currently have a custom page that accepts addresses as user input. This addresses use Google API in the back-end and gives user suggestions as they type. Due to some changes in the process, we longer can use a custom page.

I'm trying to figure out if a flow can replace custom page. I need suggestions(typeahead) as the user types on the UI with help of Google API call. Is this possible with flows?

I created some flow but not sure how make it work similar to the custom page.

You can try to extend you flow with an apex. Apex code will perform calls to Google API. Extend Your Flow with Apex

But, I would recommend you out-of-the-box Salesforce functionality of lightning component called lightning:inputAddress with showAddressLookup = "true". lightning:inputAddress Specification Later, you can try to use this component in flows (Aura Component Available For Flow Screens).
