    In fact, the Nuget Package is just not support goole authentication on ios/Android, you could use Xamarin.Auth to implement this part of function.

    You can refer to .NET quickstart and Google Sheets API to get the sample about how to use REST in C# and REST API reference.

    Here is the sample code that I've tested.



    In addition, don't forget to add the following code into your MainActivity:

       global::Xamarin.Auth.Presenters.XamarinAndroid.AuthenticationConfiguration.Init(this, savedInstanceState);  
       global::Xamarin.Auth.CustomTabsConfiguration.CustomTabsClosingMessage = null;  

    Also, you need to create a activity: 195102-activitycustomurlschemeinterceptor.txt
