Lightning sync for google (beta)

Hello,
 
has anyone tried to implement Lightning sync for google (beta) as presented in winter release?
I did using the instructions posted in SF help: 
https://help.salesforce.com/articleView?id=lightning_sync_admin_google_prep_google.htm&type=0&language=en_US
but when I reach this step:
Authorize read-only calendar scope for the service account by entering the service account Client ID (also known as Client name) you generated in Google API Console. Enter the scope:https://www.googleapis.com/auth/calendar.readonly
I get an error message saying "the client name has not been registered with google yet"
Can anybody help? Is there maybe a video or tutorial available showing how to do this sync step by step? Thanks, claire

Thanks Sandhya, I have tested option 1 and still have the message. for option 2: I am not able to find the "manage oauth key and secret for this domanin" option. When I am in the admin console and go to"security", advanced settings, I only have the option "manage access to api client" Any idea how I can solve this? thanks, claire

I managed to get it working by very carefully following the instructions, and lots of reading between the lines, and hunting around the screens for obscure links to click...
BUT - it does not sync from Salesforce to Google. In my view, that makes it completely useless.
I want to use Salesforce to manage my tasks and events, but if those events don't sync to Google Calendar (and thus to my iPhone) they may as well not exist:(
