Do you think this will prevent us from using the current *workaround*?
I doubt it. When authenticating with Dropbox CC doesn't use anything from Google. Instead Dropbox contacts Google to verify the credentials then assuming they are correct gives CC access to Dropbox. I would be astonished if Google cut off Dropbox identity federation (OAUTH), or alternatively that Dropbox has not already done what they need to do.

It could be that CC's Google Drive connection will suffer, but Google hasn't said anything to us to that effect.

No pressure, just checking in.

Are you still thinking about implementing this update?

As I have passed the baton to Sam, he will now choose what gets done, and when.
