Subscribe with Google question

It looks like Google is offering up some new features with its Google News product, including a way for people to subscribe to newspapers with a Google account and a saved (with Google) credit card. It looks like this would streamline subscription for a lot of users, but I assume Google would also take a cut.

Has TN been involved with this at all? Looks like some large publishers are on board.

We have been consulted about the initiative as part of our Google partnership and as part of our AMP integration, but aren't yet part of the beta. 


We do have Single Sign-in available now through oAuth 2.0. Here is a page on how to do this: https://help.bloxcms.com/knowledge-base/applications/settings/users/federated_authentication/article_ec11c076-fab5-11e6-b45b-ef23752afc52.html


So, once authenticated, you can log into the BLOX front-end with no sign-in as long as you're signed in to Google.


(We have Facebook authentication as well, which is popular.)
