Google is improving the ability for ISVs and SaaS companies to use the often easier “Sign in with Google” method of authenticating users to your app. Instead of your customer having to type in their Google username and password over and over again within an embedded form, the request will now open a new browser window which is likely already logged into Google.

This will enable a single login per device rather than each app that uses Google Authentication requiring a separate login.

As a SaaS company, this makes signing into your app easier and you’ll want to make sure you and your users are aware and using the updated flow by April 20, 2017.
