Cannot connect with Google account on Dashboard

About this Page

Since December 2019, there has been a problem where the Google account cannot be used on the Dashboard.
This problem has had the following impact.

Impact of this Problem

Not being able to use Google account with the Dashboard impacts operation in the following two ways.

  • Cannot log in using Google account
  • [YouTube Live] cannot be selected and livestream using the livestreaming destination service

When using your Google account to log in and YouTube Live is selected as the livestreming destination, a screen like that shown below is displayed.

Prospects for Eliminating this Problem

The process is currently waiting for verification from Google.
It might take time for Google to conduct their investigation, so as of April 2020, there is no detailed estimate for the recovery period.

How to set up Screen Saver

LiveShell X has an OLED front display panel. We recommend using the LiveShell X screen saver function in order to avoid discoloration of the display panel if you use LiveShell X for continuous operation.
