Figure out if Google Auth needs to be updated before Google+ shutdown on March 7, 2019

Seems likely:

Please update your projects listed below by March 7, 2019 and ensure they are no longer using Google+ APIs. The data below shows which Google+ API methods your projects have recently called.

I received email from google announcing the deprecation few days ago. In the announcement they stated that they'll introduce intermittent failures on responses from the G+ API as soon as 01/2019.

Yes the exact text from the announcement about the intermittent failures states:

This will be a progressive shutdown beginning in late January, with calls to these APIs starting to intermittently fail as early as January 28, 2019.

So there's a month as of today.
