[android] com.google.android.gms:play-services-measurement-base is being requested by various other libraries

I updated to gradle 4.0.1 and started receiving following error

The library com.google.android.gms:play-services-measurement-base is being requested by various other libraries at [[15.0.4,15.0.4]], but resolves to 15.0.2. Disable the plugin and check your dependencies tree using ./gradlew :app:dependencies.

My project doesn't use that dependency so I searched globally for it, and it it only comes up inside


as this line

<play-services-measurement-base versions="15.0.0,15.0.2"/>

So I tried deleting my build folder and cleaning the project, but it regenerates it with same values :/ hence error still remains

The answer is

If the message is:

The library com.google.android.gms:play-services-measurement-base is being requested by various other libraries at [[15.0.4,15.0.4]], but resolves to 15.0.2. Disable the plugin and check your dependencies tree using ./gradlew :app:dependencies.

Change the version of all the play services libraries you are using to the one you need (15.0.2 in this case) could solve the problem.

In my case, I've changed:

implementation 'com.google.android.gms:play-services-base:+' -> implementation 'com.google.android.gms:play-services-base:15.0.2'
implementation 'com.google.android.gms:play-services-location:+' -> implementation 'com.google.android.gms:play-services-location:15.0.2'
implementation 'com.google.android.gms:play-services-maps:+' -> implementation 'com.google.android.gms:play-services-maps:15.0.2'
implementation 'com.google.android.gms:play-services-auth:+' -> implementation 'com.google.android.gms:play-services-auth:15.0.2'
implementation 'com.google.android.gms:play-services-places:+' -> implementation 'com.google.android.gms:play-services-places:15.0.2'

Only solution that work for me (found some where in SOF)(don't have the link) is :

in top main build.grale

allprojects {

subprojects {
    project.configurations.all {
        resolutionStrategy.eachDependency { details ->
            if (details.requested.group == 'com.google.android.gms'
                    && !details.requested.name.contains('multidex')) {
                details.useVersion "x.y.z"

I have same problem, then I solved to chanced implementation 'com.google.firebase:firebase-auth:15+' instead implementation 'com.google.firebase:firebase-auth:16.1.0'

I was bumping into this problem, and noticed that the release notes mentioned:

Firebase now requires the app gradle file to explicitly list com.google.firebase:firebase-core as a dependency for Firebase services to work as expected.

Making firebase-core an app dependency (as well as a library dependency) resolved this problem for me.

I updated

implementation 'com.google.android.gms:play-services-analytics:16.0.3'

and it works for me

You can find the library pulling this dependancy using:

$ ./gradlew app:dependencies


This error happened when one or more of your firebase or google play service library is an old version.


Simply Update all libraries to latest version.

If you have to use the old version (for example for sanctions or other reasons) follow this:

  • add googleServices.disableVersionCheck = true to end of your app/build.Gradle file
  • run the project and find duplicate library or library with a dependency issue
  • add them to exclude for the old(s) library.


// remote config uses the old version
implementation('com.google.firebase:firebase-config:16.1.3') {   
    exclude group: 'com.google.firebase', module: 'firebase-analytics'
    exclude group: 'com.google.firebase', module: 'firebase-analytics-impl'
    exclude group: 'com.google.android.gms', module: 'play-services-measurement'
    exclude group: 'com.google.android.gms', module: 'play-services-measurement-impl'
implementation 'com.google.firebase:firebase-analytics:17.4.0'
implementation 'com.google.firebase:firebase-messaging:20.1.6'
implementation 'com.google.firebase:firebase-crashlytics:17.0.0'

Had the same issue. You have to remove the colon : after the version in the gradle (it's a bug).

These settings worked for me:

implementation 'com.google.firebase:firebase-firestore:17.1.5'

Also set multiDexEnabled to true in the gradle (if you get the DexOverflowException error):

    android {
        compileSdkVersion 27
            multiDexEnabled true

I was getting a similar error when I was trying to use the same version for everything:

implementation 'com.google.android.gms:play-services-base:16.0.0'
implementation 'com.google.android.gms:play-services-analytics:16.0.0'
implementation 'com.google.android.gms:play-services-awareness:16.0.0'
implementation 'com.google.android.gms:play-services-cast:16.0.0'
implementation 'com.google.android.gms:play-services-gcm:16.0.0'
implementation 'com.google.android.gms:play-services-location:16.0.0'
implementation 'com.google.firebase:firebase-messaging:16.0.0'

The problem was fixed for me when I did the following:

1) Used the latest version available of each service:

implementation 'com.google.android.gms:play-services-base:16.1.0'
implementation 'com.google.android.gms:play-services-analytics:16.0.8'
implementation 'com.google.android.gms:play-services-awareness:16.0.0'
implementation 'com.google.android.gms:play-services-cast:16.2.0'
implementation 'com.google.android.gms:play-services-gcm:16.1.0'
implementation 'com.google.android.gms:play-services-location:16.0.0'
implementation 'com.google.firebase:firebase-messaging:17.6.0'

2) Upgraded Android Studio to the latest version available today (Android Studio 3.4).

3) Upgraded Android Gradle Plugin Version to 3.4.0 and Gradle Version to 5.1.1.

1. Open project level build.gradle

Update com.google.gms:google-services version to latest. Track latest release. At the time of answer latest is 4.1.0.

2. Open app level build.gradle

Update below dependency if you use any. Note that firebase has individual versions for every dependency now.

Use latest Firebase Libraries. At the time of answer latest versions are below.

Sync and Build...

replace the "+" with version number, it would choose the latest version. like this:

implementation 'com.google.firebase:firebase-analytics:+'

changing my build.gradle to the following worked for me:

ext {
  googlePlayServicesVersion   = "15.0.1"

allprojects {
  repositories {
      maven { url 'http://maven.google.com' }
      jcenter { url "http://jcenter.bintray.com/" }
      maven {
        // All of React Native (JS, Obj-C sources, Android binaries) is installed from npm
        url "$rootDir/../node_modules/react-native/android"

      configurations.all {
        resolutionStrategy {
            force "com.google.android.gms:play-services-basement:$googlePlayServicesVersion"
            force "com.google.android.gms:play-services-tasks:$googlePlayServicesVersion"

Add to list of your dependencies. Now need to have it for proper work of all firebase dependencies:

implementation 'com.google.firebase:firebase-core:16.0.1'

I had that same problem when I tried to add the firebase-database implementation, if I commented that line it works, so after a few tries I went to https://firebase.google.com/docs/android/setup

There I checked the versions of the available libraries and my firebase-core was at 16.0.1 (current version is 16.0.4) so I manually changed it and it worked just fine, build and sync were successful.

I noticed that debug logs mention old version of firebase-analytics (16.0.0). Adding explicitly the latest version fixed the problem:

implementation "com.google.firebase:firebase-analytics:16.0.3"

firebase-core & firebase-database ... should be same version:

implementation 'com.google.firebase:firebase-core:16.0.1' implementation 'com.google.firebase:firebase-database:16.0.1'

I changed the following dependencies in my project to make it work .

build.gradle (app):

implementation 'com.google.firebase:firebase-core:16.0.1'


implementation 'com.google.firebase:firebase-core:16.0.8'

build.gradle (app) :

classpath 'com.google.gms:google-services:4.0.1'


classpath 'com.google.gms:google-services:4.2.0'

****Note :

Use the following link for updated use of libraries that have dependencies https://firebase.google.com/docs/android/setup

Use the updated version of Firebase and avoid extras. This is enough (but if you need to use storage space or .. you should add them too)

implementation 'com.google.firebase:firebase-core:17.2.0'
 implementation 'com.crashlytics.sdk.android:crashlytics:2.10.1'
implementation 'com.google.android.gms:play-services-ads:18.2.0'
implementation 'com.google.firebase:firebase-messaging:20.0.0'
implementation 'com.google.firebase:firebase-core:17.2.0'

and update the google-services :

 classpath 'com.google.gms:google-services:4.3.2'

just put below code:

    implementation 'com.google.firebase:firebase-core:16.0.6'
    implementation 'com.google.firebase:firebase-database:16.0.6'

and rebuild. it works just for fine for me

I was having an error The library com.google.android.gms:play-services-measurement-base is being requested by various other libraries at [[16.0.2,16.0.2]], but resolves to 16.0.0. Disable the plugin and check your dependencies tree using ./gradlew :app:dependencies.

Running ./gradlew :app:dependencies will reveal what dependencies are requiring wrong dependencies (the ones in the square bracket). For me the problem was coming from firebase-core:16.0.3 as shown below. I fixed it by downgrading firebase-core to 16.0.1

+--- com.google.firebase:firebase-core:16.0.3
|    +--- com.google.firebase:firebase-analytics:16.0.3
|    |    +--- com.google.android.gms:play-services-basement:15.0.1
|    |    |    \--- com.android.support:support-v4:26.1.0 (*)
|    |    +--- com.google.android.gms:play-services-measurement-api:[16.0.1] -> 16.0.1
|    |    |    +--- com.google.android.gms:play-services-ads-identifier:15.0.1
|    |    |    |    \--- com.google.android.gms:play-services-basement:[15.0.1,16.0.0) -> 15.0.1 (*)
|    |    |    +--- com.google.android.gms:play-services-basement:15.0.1 (*)
|    |    |    +--- com.google.android.gms:play-services-measurement-base:[16.0.2] -> 16.0.2

I my case i use latest rnfirebase below URL


add below in android/app/proguard-rules.pro)

-keep class io.invertase.firebase.** { *; }
-dontwarn io.invertase.firebase.**

I guess the following error is caused because of the varying versions of firebase dependencies. For me changing the version of all the dependencies that i'm implementing on my project to 16.0.1, worked like a charm.

For me the error was created by the line: com.google.firebase:firebase-auth:16.0.2

And I changed it to : com.google.firebase:firebase-auth:16.0.1

And it worked.. Hope this helps.

Update all your dependencies to the latest version and it will fix the issue.

No need to add
com.google.gms.googleservices.GoogleServicesPlugin.config.disableVersionCheck = true

It will lead to crashes if you use mixed versions.

In my case using latest versions of following dependencies solved my issue:


only working solution for me:

put it on the bottom of build.gradle

com.google.gms.googleservices.GoogleServicesPlugin.config.disableVersionCheck = true

Resolved here: Me too faced the same problem when trying to add crashlytics in firebase. Please update the latest version of dependencies for com.google.android.gms:play-services and com.google.firebase: ....... It will automatically resolved the issues

This can happen if your Android Gradle plugin is very old, even if you are only using a single Google lib! Apparently all Google libs used to need to be the exact same version. Now they don't need to be the same, only the latest. When specifying even a single lib, it pulls in dependencies where the versions don't match and the old Android Gradle plugin pukes.

Set a newer version like:

buildscript {
    dependencies {
        classpath 'com.android.tools.build:gradle:3.3.2'

You may need update your Gradle to use the newer plugin (it will tell you).

In my case I simply remove

implementation "com.google.android.gms:play-services-ads:16.0.0

and add firebase ads dependencies

implementation 'com.google.firebase:firebase-ads:17.1.2'

I have similar issue which resolved by :

  1. In app level gradle: Update all firebase dependencies to the latest version latest
  2. In project level gradle : update the dependency to the latest: gms.google-services, In my case it was: 'com.google.gms:google-services:4.2.0'

Make Sure to keep Your Google play services dependencies and Firebase dependencies to latest version.

Also check all your gradle files, module level and project level, there has to be only one common version of dependency across all modules. Can be solved by keeping those versions in project level gradle variable.

Check here for Google play services update version

Google Play Services Latest

Check here for Firebase updated version

Firebase Latest

Check here for Firebase updated version for Android

Firebase Android Latest

A similar issue arose with me when I tried to add Firebase Database to my project.

implementation 'com.google.firebase:firebase-core:16.0.1'
implementation 'com.google.firebase:firebase-database:16.0.3'

The issue can be resolved by downgrading or upgrading both the versions to a similar level. So I downgraded firebase database to

implementation 'com.google.firebase:firebase-core:16.0.1'
implementation 'com.google.firebase:firebase-database:16.0.1'

and it worked! All available versions can be searched on this site: https://mvnrepository.com/

I had the same issue

Just make sure that you have the latest versions of all the dependencies. I used the current versions for Firebase core and auth. The newer versions have bug fixes.

You can get the latest versions from here : https://firebase.google.com/support/release-notes/android

Using the latest version at current point of time:

in app/build.gradle :

dependencies {
implementation 'com.google.firebase:firebase-core:16.0.6'
implementation 'com.google.firebase:firebase-auth:16.1.0'

This can be resolved by using latest set of dependencies.

You can find the latest ones on the site below


Post that sync again and it should work fine

For me this error appeared after integrating Crashlytics via Firebase, due to a conflict of versions between

implementation 'com.google.firebase:firebase-core:16.0.4'
implementation 'com.google.android.gms:play-services-location:15.0.1'

I first tried downgrading Firebase Core to 15.0.1, but it seems there is no such version, only 15.0.0 and 15.0.2! Instead I had to downgrade both to version 15.0.0, so I ended up with

implementation 'com.google.firebase:firebase-core:15.0.0'
implementation 'com.google.android.gms:play-services-location:15.0.0'

So now it's working, but I get those annoying Lint warnings about newer versions being available. This versioning debacle is a freakin' mess.

In my case I have replaced my build.gradle file this line

implementation 'com.google.firebase:firebase-core:16.0.8'


implementation 'com.google.firebase:firebase-core:15.0.0' 

and added this line

implementation 'com.google.android.gms:play-services-location:15.0.0'

Now its fine

here is a simple solution. the problem is because you are using latest version for one library and lower version for the other library. try to balance it. the best solution is to use latest version for all of your libraries. To solve your problem simply click here and see the latest version of libraries and include it in you project and then synchronize it.
in my case the following is working for me:

    implementation 'com.google.firebase:firebase-core:16.0.7'
    implementation 'com.google.firebase:firebase-database:16.1.0'
apply plugin: 'com.google.gms.google-services'

In my case, this solves the issue:

implementation 'com.google.android.gms:play-services-analytics:16.0.1'

I Have got same error but My case was diffrent I have use Both Audience Network and Firebase.

I got this error

Android dependency 'com.google.android.gms:play-services-basement' has different version for the compile (11.0.4) and runtime (16.0.1) classpath. You should manually set the same version via DependencyResolution

Here is solution if you are using audience-network

implementation ("com.facebook.android:audience-network-sdk:$rootProject.fb_version")
    exclude group: 'com.google.android.gms'
