Google Accounts Integration

The Nylas Communications Platform drastically reduces the effort it takes to build and maintain a Gmail, Google Calendars, and Google Contacts integration. With just a few lines of code, you can integrate full email, calendar, and contacts functionality into your application.

Get Started With Your Google Integration

In order to integrate Google accounts into your application, you first need to connect your Nylas app to a Google API project. This will enable users to authenticate with their Google account and provide access to the data that you stipulate in the Google API.

Setup a Google Project for Development Purposes - This guide walks you through the process of setting up a Google API project that can be used for development purposes. This is the quickest way to start building your Google integration.

Setup a Google Project for Internal Use - If you only need to provide integrations for internal accounts (i.e email@your_company.com), you can setup a Google project without being required to go through Google’s security review process. However, this app will be restricted to accounts from the specified email domain.

Ready For Production?

Google requires apps that have access to certain functionality to go through an extensive security review process. Nylas has partnered with Google to provide a streamlined verification and security review process for Nylas customers, and we’re here to help when you’re ready to move to production.
