Project Description

Google Play Services Plugins is a set of plugins for popular build systems that allow you to include Google Play Services as a dependency in your project. These plugins make it easier to integrate Google Play Services into your Android app and ensure that the necessary libraries and dependencies are properly configured.

There are plugins available for several build systems, including Gradle, Maven, and Bazel. These plugins allow you to include Google Play Services as a dependency in your build configuration and automatically download the necessary libraries and dependencies when you build your app.

Using the Google Play Services Plugins can help simplify the process of integrating Google Play Services into your app and ensure that you have the necessary dependencies and libraries included in your project.

There could be a few different reasons why you are experiencing this issue. Here are a few things you can try:

  1. Double-check the configuration of your API keys and ensure that they are correct and configured correctly in the plugin settings.
  2. Make sure that you have enabled the necessary APIs for your project in the Google Cloud Console.
  3. Ensure that the correct package name and SHA-1 signing certificate fingerprint is configured in the plugin settings and match the values in your Firebase project.
  4. If you are using an emulator, make sure that it has the Google Play Services package installed and is up to date.
  5. If you are using a physical device, make sure that it has the latest version of Google Play Services installed.
  6. If you are still experiencing issues, try clearing the cache and data for the Google Play Services app on your device.

If none of these suggestions help, you may try reaching out to the support team for the plugin or the Google Maps API for further assistance.
