Ionic with React and google auth: idToken is truncated in android


I’m using Ionic with React and @codetrix-studio’s capacitor-google-auth plugin to enable google auth. The processed idToken has different lengths when comparing Web to Android environments.

When running in the web browser I’m getting 1224 chars and everything works just fine. But when running android I’m only getting 1122 chars. Also I’m not getting anything out of the accessToken.

Can anyone provide some hits on how to solve this?

I’m getting the token like so:

async signIn(): Promise<void> {
  const result: any = await Plugins.GoogleAuth.signIn();

  if (result) {
    let token = result.authentication.idToken;
    this.setToastMsg(token.length + "");

This is triggered from a simple button:

<IonButton onClick={() => this.signIn2()} >Login with Google</IonButton>


Turns out the token provided by google for the android api is actually smaller. So everything is ok.
