I have been following chapter 13, created an emulated device that has the required APIs installed (Oreo), just like in the screenshot. I have also created the key and pasted it into “google_maps_api.xml (debug)”.
When I start the app in the emulator, the following message is shown:
“PlaceBook won’t run unless you update Google Play services.”
When I hit the UPDATE button, it says that the server couldn’t be reached.
“Couldn’t sign in. There was a problem communicating with Google servers.”
