What is Google OAuth?
To enable your application to use Google APIs such as the Google Calendar API, you need to create an OAuth 2.0 client ID and registration in the Google API Console. To obtain OAuth 2.0 credentials, you need to register a Google developer project and create or choose a client ID for your application. The Google APIs Console is used to handle these credentials.
