Can someone help with below error for Android build? I tried both building apk and app-bundle:

Error log:

Hey @girishjjain,

It looks like the error is being thrown from the google-services.json file. Can you make sure have supplied a valid file and also make sure that the file is for the appropriate project and not a different google project.


Thanks @adamjnav, you’re correct. I had wrong file path for Android platform.

Glad to hear you got things sorted. Good luck with your project moving forward!
