Required Permission

Add the Internet permission in AndroidMenifest.xml file.

build.gradle (Project)

Add the following dependency in build.gradle file.



Add the TextView and Google SignInButton in activity_main.xml file.

In the class, we call the Auth.GoogleSignInApi.getSignInIntent() method to login through Google Sign-In API. The GoogleApiClient.OnConnectionFailedListener interface of Google API overrides its unimplemented method onConnectionFailed(ConnectionResult) which returns the connection failure result. The GoogleApiClient class is used to manage the connection between an Android application and Google Sign-In API.


Add the following component in activity_profile.xml file.

Create a class in which we will display the user detail after the successful login.

In this class, we will retrieve the user detail if the user successfully login. The GoogleSignInResult class implements the Result interface which represents the final result of invoking an API method of Google Play Services.

The GoogleSignInAccount class holds the basic information of user.
