Firebase connect - File google-services.json is missing

I follow the example to implement Push notification with Capacitor and Firebase
at this link…

i have to put “google-services.json” in android > app folder

At the end,
i click Build but android studio says:

File google-services.json is missing. The Google Services Plugin cannot function without it. 

Searched Location: 

Why did it search in

and not in

like the documentation said ?? :frowning:

then if i put the file where it search for… the build says that there’s a package_name conflict… but all the package names are correct


what am i missing ??
Thanks !!

I am facing same problem using Capacitor in (ionic-5-full-starter-app pro)

the file (google-services.json) is already in android>app folder but still give same error message.

I get the same message, but the app is working anyway.

It works for me, even if i get the same error message.
