plugin.google.play.services is not needed for any of our current plugins. In fact it blocks several plugins from using.

 

For using AdMob, you either have to use the paid AdMob plugin https://marketplace.coronalabs.com/plugin/admob

You can also implement Appodeal which is an ad mediator and includes AdMob ads.

 

 

You cannot use the old AdMob plugin any longer.

Hi I am coming across this warning in the documentations when setting up, chartboost, admob etc.

 

If you are building for Android, you should remove any legacy inclusion of the ["plugin.google.play.services"] plugin from your build.settings.

 

Does this mean I have to remove ["plugin.google.play.services"] from my build.settings? Will it never be needed anymore? Will I have problems if I don't remove it? I don't exactly remember why I put it in the first place.

 

Here is my build.settings file.

 

plugins =

    {
    ["plugin.google.play.services"] =
        {
            publisherId = "com.coronalabs"
        },
       
        ["CoronaProvider.ads.vungle"] =
   {
      publisherId = "com.vungle",
   },
   
        
 ["plugin.chartboost"] =
        {
            publisherId = "com.coronalabs"
        },
 
    
        ["CoronaProvider.native.popup.social"] =
        {
            publisherId = "com.coronalabs"
        },
 
        ["plugin.notifications"] =
        {
            publisherId = "com.coronalabs",
        },

Yes.

 

 

Hi Rob. Hope you're doing well.

 

Turns out I added ["plugin.google.play.services"] for Admob. If I remove it Admob doesn't work. Should I update Admob or is it OK to keep using it as is? What problems can I have if I leave it as is? I activated the premium admob plugin.
