Updated my project to the latest Play services

classpath 'com.google.gms:google-services:1.5.0-beta2'
also using the latest version of playservices in my app.gradle file as

compile 'com.google.android.gms:play-services-location:8.3.0'
compile 'com.google.android.gms:play-services-gcm:8.3.0'


However when i compile gradle throws exception as follows

Error:Execution failed for task ':app:processDebugGoogleServices'. > File google-services.json is missing from module root folder. The Google Services Plugin cannot function without it.

Answer

You need to get the configuration file from the developer's site and paste it in the app level directory of your project.
