Incorporate the Firebase features that the sample app will use into the project.
- [Voiceover] Now that we've set up the project…in the console and we've added the Firebase dependencies…to our Gradle Build scripts, we can start adding Firebase…analytics to the code.…So in Android Studio, open the starred version…of the project, we'll begin by adding analytics…to the main activity of our application.…So open the app folder and open the java folder…and you'll see that there are three activities.…If you open the resources folder and go to the layout folder…you'll also notice that there's an XML file for each one…of the activities.…
Open the XML file for the main activity and wait for it…to show up in the layout here.…And if you get a rendering problem, sometimes that happens…with newer SDK's, try changing it to an older SDK…I'm going to try APi 23.…And you can see that that worked.…So this is the layout file for our main activity…you can see there are the main buttons, there's also…a hidden invisible button down here which is the cell button…and we'll see why that is hidden a little bit later.…
