@redappleone 

If you log in to an app -- YouTube TV, YouTube, other Google owned apps -- on the Roku device, it will show up there. If you don't log in to a Google app on the Roku device, it won't show. And, it will probably show by the Roku model number. I'm logged in to YouTube on my Roku Ultra, and it shows as 4660RW, since that's the model number. I'm also logged in on my Streambar, and it shows as 9102RW, since that's the model number.

But, to reiterate, you don't log in to the device. You log in to apps on the device, such as YouTube.

@redappleone 

What are you trying to do? Add an app?

You don't log in to Google on the device itself. If there is an app that ties to Google, such as YouTube TV or YouTube, you would log in within the app.

Please explain what it is you're trying to accomplish. What's the goal? Yeah, you said "add Google" but that's not a thing you do as written. Why do you think you need to "add Google" and what do you think it will accomplish?

Don't know. Contact Google and ask them: https://about.google/contact-google/

The only one with Google in it's name has been shutdown for good on June 16 of this year, that was Google Play. What's left are YouTube and youtube tv.
