Gradle error: Runtime failure for task ': application: processDebugGoogleServices'

advertisements

I am following this link to integrate Google sign-in in my android app.https://developers.google.com/identity/sign-in/android/start-integrating As given in last step on the above given page we have to include dependency

 compile 'com.google.android.gms:play-services-auth:8.3.0'

in app-level build.gradle file but doing so and building project an error comes saying

Error:Execution failed for task ':app:processDebugGoogleServices'.
> Please fix the version conflict.

build.gradle(Module:app)

apply plugin: 'com.android.application'
apply plugin: 'com.google.gms.google-services'

android {
    compileSdkVersion 23
    buildToolsVersion "23.0.2"

    defaultConfig {
        applicationId "com.brainbreaker.socialbuttons"
        minSdkVersion 16
        targetSdkVersion 23
        versionCode 1
        versionName "1.0"
    }
    buildTypes {
        release {
            minifyEnabled false
            proguardFiles getDefaultProguardFile('proguard-android.txt'), 'proguard-rules.pro'
        }
    }
}

dependencies {
    compile fileTree(dir: 'libs', include: ['*.jar'])
    testCompile 'junit:junit:4.12'
    compile 'com.android.support:appcompat-v7:23.0.1'
    compile 'com.android.support:design:23.0.1'
    compile 'com.google.android.gms:play-services-auth:8.3.0'
}

In the build.gradle file the compile dependency line compile 'com.google.android.gms:play-services-auth:8.3.0' shows error

All com.google.android.gms libraries must use the exact same version specification (mixing versions can lead to runtime crashes). Found versions 8.3.0, 8.1.0. Examples include com.google.android.gms:play-services-base:8.3.0 and com.google.android.gms:play-services-measurement:8.1.0 There are some combinations of libraries, or tools and libraries, that are incompatible, or can lead to bugs. One such incompatibility is compiling with a version of the Android support libraries that is not the latest version (or in particular, a version lower than your targetSdkVersion.)

Here are the messages of gradle build.

I am not able to see any way out for this version conflict. Any help is appreciated.


I had the same issue and resolved it by adding the following line in the dependencies of the project-level build.gradle:

classpath 'com.google.gms:google-services:3.0.0'

For a full working example, check out the following project on github.

Hope this helps :)
