Android Firebase DynamiteModule: Failed to load module descriptor

Since upgrading to the newest version of Firebase (9.0.0), I can't get rid of the following two errors when authenticating a user through

signInWithEmailAndPassword()
. Anyone an idea what's going on?

05-19 18:09:49.245 23550-23589/[PACKAGE] E/DynamiteModule: Failed to load
module descriptor class: Didn't find class

And

Answer

Can you check your Google Play Services version?

From Firebase oficial website:

Prerequisites

  • An Android device running Google Play services 9.0.0 or later
  • The Google Play services SDK from the Android SDK Manager
  • Android Studio 1.5 or higher
  • An Android Studio project and its package name.
