Just got this email yesterday:  

 

 

Subject:   [ACTION REQUIRED] Google Drive Android API is being deprecated and will be shut down on December 6, 2019

 

From: The G Suite Team <gsuite-noreply@google.com>

Hello G Suite Developer,

We found that one or more of your apps is using the Google Drive Android API, which will be shut down on December 6, 2019. Affected apps are listed at the end of this email.

What's changing?

On December 6, 2018, we announced that we're simplifying options for developers by retiring the Google Drive Android API. We will focus solely on expanding functionality for the Google Drive REST API.

If you're new to the Google Drive REST API, it offers all of the same functionality as the Google Drive Android API, including ways to:

What does this shutdown mean for your app between now and December 6, 2019?

You will need to migrate your existing applications to other services prior to December 6, 2019. This is when all calls to the Drive Android API and any features in your applications that depend on it will shut down. Note: if you've been using the Drive Android API for its offline sync capability, you can continue to provide an offline-first model by using a SyncAdapter with the Drive REST API.

We're here to help

We want to make it easy for you to migrate your applications to use the Drive REST API. To get started, reference this migration guide which details replacements for each of the major services fulfilled by the Drive Android API. Additionally, check out this sample app, which demonstrates each of these proposed replacements. If you have any issues, check out the google-drive-sdktag on StackOverflow.

Affected applications

Affected apps are listed below, up to 10. If you have additional apps in your catalog, please be sure to migrate all other affected apps accordingly.

 

<my app IDs>

 

Sincerely,

The G Suite Team

I'm currently using Google Game Services so I'm assuming that's what it's about.

 

Is Corona team aware of this?

I'll ask the team. This is certainly the first I've heard of this. 

 

Are you using GPGS v1 or v2?
