Backendless react native push notification: Could not find com.google.gms:google-services:4

Are you looking for help?

Yes

Backendless Version (5.x )

Client SDK (JS, react-native)

Application ID

covid-alert (13273B5D-AF7E-2CBF-FF48-AAFDBB6FA700)

Expected Behavior

Please describe the expected behavior of the issue, starting from the first action.

1.Create standard react native application
2. Follow instructions from github “https://github.com/Backendless/React-Native-JS-SDK” to
get firebase sdk configured in your app for notifications.
3. exec “react-native run-android” and expect application to deploy to device.

Actual Behavior

Application fails to deploy because “Could not find com.google.gms:google-services:4.”

I have followed the steps described in the github page to get dependencies installed. Per the instructions, here is my setup:

Here is my ‘\android\app\build.gradle’:
added this line at the bottom of file:

apply plugin: ‘com.google.gms.google-services’

Here are lines from my ‘\android\build.gradle’:

dependencies {

    classpath("com.android.tools.build:gradle:3.5.2")

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

}

Sorry if this issue may not be directly backendless (maybe more react-native setup). But I have followed instructions from your repositories. It seems that it is not working. Maybe documentation may need to be updated. In any case, thank you for your support/
