What's the difference between the two different Google authentication mechanisms in the docs?

I see two distinct mechanisms for authenticating with Google OAuth in the docs:


Could someone help me understand the difference? Especially:

  1. Will both work for standalone and both workflow apps? (Seems the answer is yes, with some twiddling.)
  2. Do both methods return the same credentials?
  3. If I want to use multiple OAuth providers, is one method a better choice?

Basically, why do we have two official-looking ways to do this? How should I choose one or the other here?
