I'm trying to figure out why but I didn't try to ask for another string language than English. In the case of need, this is my app Gradle:

apply plugin: 'com.android.application'

android {
compileSdkVersion 25
buildToolsVersion "25.0.2"
defaultConfig {
applicationId ".chillout"
minSdkVersion 15
targetSdkVersion 25
versionCode 1
versionName "1.0"
testInstrumentationRunner "android.support.test.runner.AndroidJUnitRunner"
}
buildTypes {
release {
minifyEnabled false
proguardFiles getDefaultProguardFile('proguard-android.txt'), 'proguard-rules.pro'
}
}
}

dependencies {
compile fileTree(dir: 'libs', include: ['*.jar'])
androidTestCompile('com.android.support.test.espresso:espresso-core:2.2.2', {
exclude group: 'com.android.support', module: 'support-annotations'
})
compile 'com.android.support:appcompat-v7:25.1.1'
compile 'com.android.support:design:25.3.1'
compile 'com.github.bumptech.glide:glide:3.7.0'
compile 'com.google.firebase:firebase-database:10.0.0'
compile 'com.google.firebase:firebase-storage:10.0.0'
compile 'com.google.firebase:firebase-messaging:10.0.0'
compile 'com.facebook.android:facebook-android-sdk:[4,5)'
compile 'com.firebaseui:firebase-ui-database:1.2.0'
compile 'com.android.support:cardview-v7:25.3.0'
compile 'com.android.support.constraint:constraint-layout:1.0.2'
testCompile 'junit:junit:4.12'
}
apply plugin: 'com.google.gms.google-services'


And this is my project Gradle.

// Top-level build file where you can add configuration options common to all sub-projects/modules.

buildscript {
repositories {
jcenter()
mavenCentral()
}
dependencies {
classpath 'com.android.tools.build:gradle:2.3.3'
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
}
}

allprojects {
repositories {
jcenter {
}
}
}

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


Thank you!

Roll back to the previous version, which is 4.23.0, seems to be working fine. I.e.

    compile 'com.facebook.android:facebook-android-sdk:4.23.+'

The latest release 4.24.0 seems to be problematic in many ways on both Android and iOS.
