[ Google+ Share Error Code 8 ]

when implementing Google+ share i do the following in onCreate:

mGoogleClient = new GoogleApiClient.Builder(this)

i conntect to Google after onClick on a button:


then callback is called:

public void onConnectionFailed(ConnectionResult result) {
    // TODO Auto-generated method stub
    Log.e("GoogleClient","connection failed!");
    Log.e("result",""+ result.getErrorCode());
    if (result.hasResolution()) {
        try {
            result.startResolutionForResult(this, REQUEST_CODE_RESOLVE_ERR);
        } catch (SendIntentException e) {
    // Speichern Sie das Ergebnis und beheben Sie den Verbindungsfehler bei einem Klick des Nutzers.
    mGoogleConnectionResult = result;


And i get Error Code 8, 12-28 22:39:56.286: E/result(15533): ConnectionResult{statusCode=INTERNAL_ERROR, resolution=null}.

I added my APK to Google and got a valid release key. I know that because the first time i tried to share it works like a charm and i was able to share on my Google+ page. If i tried it again nothing happens, not even the Choose Google-account Dialog appears. If i uninstall my app and reinstall it and then try again, Choose Google-account Dialog appears when i choose my Google Account as i did the first time i get Error Code 8 -----> 12-28 22:39:56.286: E/result(15533): ConnectionResult{statusCode=INTERNAL_ERROR, resolution=null}.

I got the latest Android SDK and the latest Google Play Services.

Any help is appreciated.

According to Google Developers website, you do not need to call connect() to share with Google Plus. You just need to launch a Share Intent.
