actually i work on project and i try to add ads for this i use cordova-plugin-admob-free this plugin is installed :


<plugin name="cordova-plugin-admob-free" spec="~0.9.0" />


  "cordovaPlugins": [

but when i try to prepare and show ads ionic say :
Install the AdMobFree plugin: 'ionic plugin add cordova-plugin-admob-free’
Native: tried calling, but the AdMobFree plugin is not installed.

i have aleready try to resore (ionic restore), unistall plugin and reinstall

Did you install the plugin with npm?


Yes like this :
ionic plugin add --save cordova-plugin-admob-free npm install --save @ionic-native/admob-free
