    Any ideas on when Google may release its Google Authenticator for WP8? I use it for several services.

    To my knowledge, Google has never shown any interest in WP (7 or 8).

    If you require it, then best give WP a miss.

    Just found an alternate app developed by someone else (that's been endorsed by Lastpass). So I'm all good! Thanks!

    Just beware, Google changes APIs quite often, and has broken the various youTube apps on WP7 a number of times, so just beware a third party app may got broken from time to time.

    There's actually no API involved so it can't break. You obtain an initial shared secret from Google which is used to generate the code later on without needing internet.

    Authenticator is open-source too: https://github.com/mbmccormick/Authenticator
