Title: Google token expiring

The google token is expiring every time. It has expired 4 times in last one day but not sure in how many hours it expires. Can you kindly check

ok bug fixed, please visit http://google.signage.me and create a new token (you may need to revoke previous one)
keep in mind you only want to visit this page one time... and save your token for future use. A new token is valid for per user is for 6 months and will work for all google services (Calendar, Google Plus, Picasa, Google Drive etc). If you forget your token, you can revoke it and create one (or the same in 6 months if and when it expires).

let me know if this resolved your issue.

I'm having the opposite issue...

I created a google token on May 25, 2016 and it should have expired Nov 25, 2016 essentially... But it is still active and pulling data. Is this a glitch?

Or are the tokens actually valid for longer than 6 months?

As far as I can see in my google dashboard there is no expiration date. It is fully authorized with your software just like any other app/connection.
