Version conflict updating to play-services 9.4.0 Android studio 2.2

I get an error saying

Error:Execution failed for task ':app:processDebugGoogleServices'.
> Please fix the version conflict either by updating the version of the google-services plugin (information about the latest version is available at https://bintray.com/android/android-tools/com.google.gms.google-services/) or updating the version of com.google.android.gms to 9.0.0.

I tried looking at https://bintray.com/android/android-tools/com.google.gms.google-services/ and com.google.gms:google-services:3.0.0 seems to be the latest. This is my project gradle

dependencies {
classpath 'com.android.tools.build:gradle:2.1.2'
classpath 'com.google.gms:google-services:3.0.0'
// NOTE: Do not place your application dependencies here; they belong
// in the individual module build.gradle files

And this is how my app gradle looks like

buildscript {
repositories {
maven { url 'https://maven.fabric.io/public' }

dependencies {
classpath 'io.fabric.tools:gradle:1.+'
apply plugin: 'com.android.application'
apply plugin: 'io.fabric'
apply plugin: 'com.google.gms.google-services'

repositories {
maven { url 'https://maven.fabric.io/public' }

android {
compileSdkVersion 24
buildToolsVersion "24.0.1"
useLibrary 'org.apache.http.legacy'

defaultConfig {
applicationId "com.myapp.preburn"
minSdkVersion 10
targetSdkVersion 24
versionCode 14
versionName "2.0.1"
renderscriptTargetApi 22

lintOptions {

repositories {

dependencies {
compile fileTree(dir: 'libs', include: ['*.jar'])
compile fileTree(dir: 'libs', include: 'Parse-*.jar')
compile 'com.parse.bolts:bolts-android:1.2.0'

compile 'com.google.android.gms:play-services-analytics:9.4.0'
compile 'me.leolin:ShortcutBadger:1.1.3@aar'
compile 'com.squareup.picasso:picasso:2.5.2'
compile files('libs/jsoup-1.7.3.jar')
compile('com.crashlytics.sdk.android:crashlytics:2.5.5@aar') {

compile files('libs/InMobi-5.2.2.jar')
compile files('libs/libadapterinmobi.jar')
compile files('libs/StartAppAdMobMediation-1.0.1.jar')
compile files('libs/StartAppInApp-3.3.1.jar')
compile 'org.adw.library:discrete-seekbar:1.0.1'
compile 'com.pnikosis:materialish-progress:1.0'

If I change the play services to 9.0.0 everything compiles fine. What am I missing here?


You need to put the apply plugin: 'com.google.gms.google-services' line below your dependencies block - this allows the plugin to determine what version of Play services you are using.
