As usual, when you upgrade a project to a new version of Android Studio, you'll need to upgrade the Gradle plugin version to match the studio version. But there are some other changes as well, including new recommendations for declaring dependencies in your Gradle scripts.
- [Instructor] Beginning with this week's tip…I'm going to be working in Android Studio 3.1.…As of the time of this recording…Android Studio 3.1 was still in public beta…but it's stable enough now to be used…for production applications.…As usual, when you upgrade a project…to a new version of Android Studio…you'll need to upgrade the Gradle plugin version…to match the Studio version.…I've already checked out the GitHub branch for this exercise…and when I open the project…I see the prompt to upgrade to…Gradle plugin version 3.1.0-beta3.…
If you're using a more recent version of Android Studio…you'll see a different version.…Either way, just click the update button…and that will make the required change.…Next, go to your build.gradle file for the app module.…There are a few different changes we're going to make here.…Beginning in Android Studio 3, the Build tools version…is actually set by Android Studio…so you no longer have to declare it…in your own Gradle file.…You can just delete that line of code.…This will make your project more maintainable…
