I’m actually surprised by this issue, as I had the same with another plugin, and I just realized someone raised the exact same problem on github (which was then closed without solution):
Isn’t this an issue that someone else encountered? any solution?
Again, it works perfectly in debug mode, with non-signed APK… but as soon as you generate the signed APK for the android app store, plugins are gone…
I found the root cause: within android\app\ gradle.build, I set minifyEnabled to true (!)
The initial idea was to resolve the warning shown within the google play store, as to know:
“This App Bundle contains Java/Kotlin code, which might be obfuscated. We recommend you upload a deobfuscation file to make your crashes and ANRs easier to analyze and debug”
To resolve my issue, I currently set back minifyEnabled to false.
Nevertheless, this did not allow me to resolve the warning from the google play store - any tips as how to still get cordova plugins working while providing the needful to google?
