I am building a google maps app on android using android studio When I released the first version of my app, no one was able to view the google maps as google play services must be installed on the devices by users ( I cant ask people to download that in each device) so I want to embed it into my app.
I have been searching for 4 days and no luck so far
I got that google-play-services.jar library can be added to the app and by that no need for the user to install play services
I am not sure if I should use google-play-services.jar or com.google.android.gms:play-services in my android studio app.
I read in other answers that I can use google-play-services.jar into my app so I can get Google Play Services ready without the need for user to install it.
in another said that com.google.android.gms:play-services is a must in the app!
Anyway has experience in this? Please advice.
