Building Google Maps example project with Android Studio 2.2.2

I have just downloaded Android Studio 2.2.2 and I try to build example projects. Blank activity project builds, deploys and runs successfully on my phone.

Then I try to build Google Maps project. I obtained an API key, copied it into

google_maps_api.xml
and didn't change anything else. Then, if I press Build -> Build APK, it fails with the following messages in Gradle Console:

Executing tasks: [:app:assembleDebug]

Incremental java compilation is an incubating feature.

First I noticed "Incremental java compilation is an incubating feature" message. Maybe incremental compilation is the reason of the failure? If so, how can I disable it? I didn't find anything about it in
build.gradle
and other gradle-related files.

And if incremental build is not the reason, then what is it and how to fix it? This:

Execution failed for task ':app:transformClassesWithDexForDebug'.
> com.android.build.api.transform.TransformException: com.android.ide.common.process.ProcessException: java.util.concurrent.ExecutionException: com.android.dex.DexIndexOverflowException: method ID not in [0, 0xffff]: 65536


looks like a gradle internal error. Am I right? Here is my
build.gradle
:

buildscript {
repositories {
jcenter()
}
dependencies {
classpath 'com.android.tools.build:gradle:2.2.2'

// NOTE: Do not place your application dependencies here; they belong
// in the individual module build.gradle files
}
}

allprojects {
repositories {
jcenter()
}
}

task clean(type: Delete) {
delete rootProject.buildDir
}

Answer

com.android.dex.DexIndexOverflowException: method ID not in [0, 0xffff]: 65536

You must enable multidex for your project as total number of methods in your build exceeds 65536. See Configure Apps with Over 64K Methods
