I am a new Android Developer & Stack Overflow user so help me with my doubt about Google Integration.

It is clearly written on that link. You have to sign up for a OAuth client ID by going to https://console.developers.google.com/apis/credentials and clicking on "Create credentials" and choosing OAuth Client (Also you need a backend server to be able to communicate with google server). You should choose "Web application" as you application type. This gives you a client_id and a client_secret.
