GNOME Online Accounts provides interfaces so that applications and libraries in GNOME can access the user's online accounts. It has providers for Google, ownCloud, Facebook, Flickr, Windows Live, Microsoft Exchange and Kerberos. I am going to cover the following main points in this talk:

(i) The new features that are being lined up for GNOME 3.8. Showcase some of the existing applications (eg., Documents, Empathy, Evolution) that leverage GOA.

(ii) How can application developers pick up the information provided by GNOME Online Accounts to achieve tighter integration with the desktop? What to expect from GOA, and what not to.

(iii) Problems encountered while interacting with providers -- current issues with supporting Google 2-factor authentication.
