Maybe others here have received multiple email notifications from Google regarding several of their API's that are being shutdown in early March this year.
This issue affects 3 of my games. All three games are unable to connect to Google Play Services (using the gaming plugin) without the Google Drive API being enabled. Sadly this is one of the API's that Google are shutting down. This of course will result in making my games no longer function
After a discussion on slack some time ago with @hgy29
, he suggested that there was something in the gaming plugin that needs to be modified so that Google Play Services can be connected to without requiring Drive APi.
I would like to know if there will be a new release including the fix for this before the shutdown date of March 27 2019
