Android studio can not resolve com.google.android.gms.location.places.AutocompleteFilter

I am trying to implement a autocomplete places search following this article.


I have followed all steps, and also added proper dependencies in my build.gradle file.

dependencies {
compile fileTree(dir: 'libs', include: ['*.jar'])
compile 'com.android.support:appcompat-v7:21.0.3'
compile 'com.google.android.gms:play-services:6.5.87'

Also here are the meta data section in my manifest.

android:value="@integer/google_play_services_version" />
android:value="@string/google_maps_key" />

also I have all the required SDK components installed. Still my android studio can not resolve the places part in the following imports:

import com.google.android.gms.location.places.AutocompleteFilter;
import com.google.android.gms.location.places.AutocompletePrediction;
import com.google.android.gms.location.places.AutocompletePredictionBuffer;
import com.google.android.gms.location.places.Places;

this is how they look as they can not find the Places part.

enter image description here

How can I resolve this issue? I am using SDK 19 for my app.


The Places API was only added in Google Play services 7.0: you'll need to update your dependency to be at least 7.0.0, although the latest as of this answer is 7.5.0.

Note in almost every case, you should use selective APIs to only include the portions of Google Play services you need. In that case, you'd actually use a dependency such as

compile 'com.google.android.gms:play-services-location:7.5.0'
