    Does this work with Google's 2-Step Verification.  I tried to create an application specific password and googsystray didn't authenticate.  I tried my original password and authentication failed.  I'm running Windows XP latest SP.

    I would assume that no, it does not.  I haven't tested it, anyway.

    Is this going to be added at any point? According to Google application-specific passwords should just be a drop-in replacement for the normal password in apps that don't support 2-step verification and this has been the case for Pidgin and Android, so I'm not sure why it doesn't work with googsystray.

    Ditto here. I just turned on two-step authentication, and it works like a charm on all my other applications. GRaiN doesn't work for me, so GoogSysTray is my only option. Help me, GoogSysTray, you're my only hope!

    I'll add my voice to this. After switching to two-step auth, GoogSysTray hasn't been working (obviously). After trying my best to purge my system (Linux Mint Debian Edition x64) of the installer files, I still couldn't get rid of my saved credentials for it. I think a simple solution would be to allow storage of separate passwords for each service under the same username, or a lazier hack: several instances of GoogSysTray running, each with the same username, a different password, and one service apiece).

    Just to note, yes, I am watching this conversation… I've been getting my butt handed to me by work and life in general right now and I haven't even had enough time to push a new release for the Voice fixes… I will get on this when I get some free time, hopefully this weekend.
