Ionic Phonegap Google Play Services plugin resources were not found

Hi! I’m using a background geolocation plugin that needs the google play services for Android. It installs this plugin as a dependency:

This plugin adds the Google Play Services to the Android platform with a new directory inside the Android project that Ionic creates. Everything appears to be generated correctly and no errors on ionic build / run.

My Android SDK also has the Google Play Services extras installed. I’ve re-installed the platform multiple times.

Yet, my app complains with “Google Play Services resources not found … check configuration to ensure resources are included”.

Does anyone here have a solution for me?
