How can i get profile like gender from google signin in android?

I want to integrate google sign in to my app ,when user first sign in i will create an account bind to this,so i need some profiles like gender ,locale ,etc .
and i tried as the google-sign-in doc and quick-start sample shows:

GoogleSignInOptions gso = new GoogleSignInOptions.Builder(GoogleSignInOptions.DEFAULT_SIGN_IN)

mGoogleApiClient = new GoogleApiClient.Builder(this)
.enableAutoManage(this /* FragmentActivity */, this /* OnConnectionFailedListener */)
.addApi(Auth.GOOGLE_SIGN_IN_API, gso)

when click to sign in i will call :

Intent signInIntent = Auth.GoogleSignInApi.getSignInIntent(mGoogleApiClient);
startActivityForResult(signInIntent, RC_SIGN_IN);

sign in successful ,i can get a data structure GoogleSignInResult in onActivityResult,from GoogleSignInResult i can get a GoogleSignInAccount,which only contains DisplayName,email and id.
but when in https://developers.google.com/apis-explorer/#p/,i can get profiles like gender,locale .Is there anything i missed ?

and i tried google plus api,it seems that i can get what i want .but don't konw how to use, the doc says create client like this :

mGoogleApiClient = new GoogleApiClient.Builder(this)
.addScope(new Scope(Scopes.PLUS_LOGIN))
.addScope(new Scope(Scopes.PLUS_ME))

but when i use this ,click signin button will cause app crash ,can anyone give some advice or sample code ?sorry for my poor English...

Update: problems when update to new version of google sign in Missing api_key/current key with Google Services 3.0.0

Since Plus.PeopleApi has been deprecated in Google Play services 9.4 as Google's declaration notes, please refer to the following solutions using Google People API instead:

First of all, make sure you have created Google+ profile for your Google account. Then you can refer to the following code:

GoogleSignInOptions gso = new GoogleSignInOptions.Builder(GoogleSignInOptions.DEFAULT_SIGN_IN)             
                .requestScopes(new Scope(Scopes.PLUS_LOGIN))


mGoogleApiClient = new GoogleApiClient.Builder(this)
                .enableAutoManage(this /* FragmentActivity */, this /* OnConnectionFailedListener */)
                .addApi(Auth.GOOGLE_SIGN_IN_API, gso)


    public void onActivityResult(int requestCode, int resultCode, Intent data) {
        super.onActivityResult(requestCode, resultCode, data);

        // Result returned from launching the Intent from GoogleSignInApi.getSignInIntent(...);
        if (requestCode == RC_SIGN_IN) {
            GoogleSignInResult result = Auth.GoogleSignInApi.getSignInResultFromIntent(data);

            // G+
            Person person  = Plus.PeopleApi.getCurrentPerson(mGoogleApiClient);
            Log.i(TAG, "--------------------------------");
            Log.i(TAG, "Display Name: " + person.getDisplayName());
            Log.i(TAG, "Gender: " + person.getGender());
            Log.i(TAG, "AboutMe: " + person.getAboutMe());
            Log.i(TAG, "Birthday: " + person.getBirthday());
            Log.i(TAG, "Current Location: " + person.getCurrentLocation());
            Log.i(TAG, "Language: " + person.getLanguage());

Inside build.gradle file

// Dependency for Google Sign-In
compile 'com.google.android.gms:play-services-auth:8.3.0'
compile 'com.google.android.gms:play-services-plus:8.3.0'

You can take a look at My GitHub sample project. Hope this helps!
