GoogleService failed to initialize

I am using google Maps in my android application. I have created the key and added necessary permissions in manifest file. But soon I start the application I get this message in debugger:


GoogleService failed to initialize, status: 10, Missing an expected
resource: 'R.string.google_app_id' for initializing Google services.
Possible causes are missing google-services.json or
com.google.gms.google-services gradle plugin.


I am not sure whats wrong. The Map is working fine and I can use it without any issues. My gradle file has this entry:


compile 'com.google.android.gms:play-services:8.4.0'


What is it complaining about and how do I alleviate it?

Answer

You need to place the configuration file generated by this link, it is the 2nd step in this link

And then as quoted in step 3

Copy the google-services.json file you just downloaded into the app/ or mobile/ directory of your Android
