Try to whitelist Google Systray in the panel by running dconf or by running gsettings.

If you know the command for it, install dconf-tools Install dconf-tools, then open dconf-editor (alt+f2 dconf-editor) add an exception to the whitelist. You can also replace the whitelist with "all" to allow all applications.

enter image description here

You need to run alt+f2 unity --replace afterwords.
