Hi Zachary

Sorry you’re having problems with this lab. First please make sure you’ve installed the necessary library in the Cloud Shell terminal with:

sudo pip3 install google-cloud-pubsub

When this video was recorded, the shell would default to Python 3, but I just tried it and for some reason that’s no longer the case. So you need to specify Python 3 when you run the script with:


Hope this helps!
