Learn how Google SIgn in makes it easy for users to provide authentication and identification credentials to an application and what kinds of UX branding should be used in each case
- [Voiceover] If there's one thing that most people…can agree on, it's that having to remember…individual passwords for every app and site that they use…is a burden.…By giving your users the ability to sign-in…with their Google identity and credentials,…you can greatly reduce the amount of friction…they need to deal with when working with your app.…This results in better conversion rates,…and less user frustration.…Once the user is signed in,…and providing that they've consented,…your app can then learn information about the user,…such as their email address,…and their real name,…but the benefits aren't just for the users,…your app can benefit from this arrangement too.…
Some of the features in API,…as provided by Google Play services,…require that the user be signed in to Google…for your app to use them.…For example, if your application wants to work with data…on the user's Google Drive account,…then it must be authenticated to do so.…Also, by presenting the user with a common consistent way…of signing in,…makes it more likely that users will choose to do so.…
