Accessing Google Account

Is anyone able to log into a google account from either the M3 web browser or You Tube application? I’m unable; indicates the browser is not secure. Wanted to utilize the Live TV portion of You Tube which I subscribe to. Appreciate any input.

No, I haven’t been able to log in. As I replied in the other thread where you asked about this, one owner suggested you can use a plex.tv account to work around the issue, but I haven’t tried that.

@evrider, thanks.

Yes, I had trouble logging into you tube tv.it worked after logging into and signing into plex.com.

1. Sign into the plex.com site with your google Userid and password.
2. Go to settings in you tube tv from your phone and click on settings and update you zip code area
2. From your browser, go to you tube tv and sign in with google Userid and password

You should be able to get in! Enjoy!

@Jordan2Delta - I was able to log in to hangouts.google.com. I have 2FA set up with yubikey so I had to cancel that and used the google authenticator code from my phone. Logged in successfully.

No luck with the Plex route. Don’t know what hangouts.google is? Thanks

Hangouts is Google's messaging service. The logon seems to be the standard SSO login. I dont have the car at the moment but when I tried to log into Google 2 weeks ago, it worked fine.

So you’re saying log into Google Hangout using the Tesla browser? If successful, You Tube TV will work? Thanks.

@Jordan2Delta - Not really. Your initial question was - "Is anyone able to log into a google account". Google hangouts redirects / uses standard google auth protocols. It 'should' be the same for any google site but I dont have my car to test so I cant be sure.

Thanks @ nic.taylor. I appreciate your thought.
