Why Take This Course?

If you want to be a professional Android developer, your apps most likely will include features like Google sign-in. Take this course to implement this service in a sample app, and learn how to extend this service to your own apps.



Overview of Google Play services and an introduction to the goals and structure of this series.

Lesson 1 - Getting Started

Build a basic Android App that signs your users in with Profile access. From this, you can get metadata about your users, such as their full name.

Lesson 2 - Going Deeper

Learn about the Google design styles for sign-in buttons, and how to get them to use in your own app. Customize your app with these styles, and learn about different scopes, including email scope, which only allows apps access to the signed-in user’s email address for identification.

Capstone Project (2 Stages)

This project assumes that you have completed Developing Android Apps, Advanced Android App Development and Google Play Services: Location and Context, in addition to this course.

Design, then build, your own Android app.
