Laravel Socialite and Google

Google announced their plan to shutdown Google+ by March 2019. Along with the Google+ platform, the Google+ API will be depreciated too.

On Laravel Socialite, it used to use Google+ to authenticate, but it no longer uses Google+ platform.

If you are using Socialite 4.x, your project in the Google Cloud Platform no longer needs to enable Google+ API since the default scope is already selected for authentication needs.

That’s all you need to use Google OAuth with Laravel Socialite
