Demo Video

General Guidance

As a reminder, your demo video must show the following:

  • The end-to-end flow of your app including the OAuth grant process. Be sure to show all points of integration with the Google API you are requesting. For example, if there are multiple OAuth consent workflows, you must demonstrate each of these methods in your video.
  • The complete OAuth Consent Screen. The consent screen must also show the same exact scopes you are requesting (or you have already been approved for) when you submit your app for verification. Please ensure the language setting on the bottom-left corner of the consent screen is toggled to “English."
  • The app functionalities that utilize the requested OAuth scopes
Helpful tip! Voice or text narration highlighting the points above can greatly help facilitate our review. We suggest you use screen recording and/or video editing software to explicitly call out where the above criteria are met. 
Important: Not meeting these requirements can slow down the verification process. Please make sure your demo video has met the above criteria before including it in your submission.

  • Demonstrates the complete OAuth consent workflow for the app

  • Clearly shows the OAuth Consent Screen which should include all the Google API scopes the app is requesting

  • Clearly demonstrates how each of the requested scopes is being used for the app's functionality
