Android Requires MinSdk <=9

When I am trying to make a new Google Maps Activity, its grey and I cant click the option.

(New --> Google --> Google Maps Activity (Requires MinSdk >=9)


I got the same message when I create a new app and try to choose the activity while setting up a new project.

C:\Users\Joey\AppData\Local\Android\sdk\platforms


Android-23

And when opening the SDK manager in Android Studio I got the following SDK tools.

Can someone tell me if Im missing something?

Answer

In your application level build.gradle file do you have minSdkVersion 9 or greater than 9 like this:

    defaultConfig {
        minSdkVersion 15 //this should be greater than or equal to 9
        targetSdkVersion 23
        //...
    }
