    Hi, Thanks for your article on the YouTube kodi addon. I’ve used it with no problem in the past on a Fire TV box but can’t use properly on the Nvidia Shield TV 2019. At the second sign in, I get the message “This app has not yet been verified by Google in order to use Google sign in.” Any idea why it would work on Fire TV but not Shield. Any advice you can give would be much appreciated.
