Hi.
I received this email from admob.

Beginning January 23, 2018, we will no longer provide technical support for the Google Mobile SDKs for Android and iOS, whose version is below 7.0.0. To continue running AdMob ads after this date, upgrade to the latest Google Mobile Ads SDK.
this sdk is from the lib(the admob lib need a update)? or the email is talking about google play services version on Android SDK Manager?

thx

If you are using the FirebaseAdMob library you should be OK. I'm pretty sure it uses the Maven repository to get the latest SDK. Erel should be able to confirm that.

what is the minimum Android version supported by FirebaseAdMob?
and do i need to explicitly change it in the app manifest or it might cause crash in lower versions.

Time is running out to transition from Native Express Ads to Native Advanced. I received an email from Admob saying that Native express will stop serving ads on March 1 and we need to transition to Native Advanced.

This library required B4A v6+.

This library allows showing AdMob ads. It is integrated with Firebase services so you can better track and analyze the results.
https://firebase.google.com/docs/admob/

It supports banner ads and interstitial ads (full screen ads).

First you need to follow the Firebase integration tutorial: https://www.b4x.com/android/forum/threads/integrating-firebase-services.67692/
Make sure to include the Ads manifest snippet.

Full example that shows a banner ad and an interstitial ad when clicking on the activity:
B4X:
Sub Process_Globals

End Sub

Sub Globals
   Private BannerAd As AdView
   Private IAd As InterstitialAd
End Sub

Sub Activity_Create(FirstTime As Boolean)
   BannerAd.Initialize2("BannerAd", "ca-app-pub-3940256099942544/6300978111", BannerAd.SIZE_SMART_BANNER)
   Dim height As Int
   If GetDeviceLayoutValues.ApproximateScreenSize < 6 Then
    'phones
    If 100%x > 100%y Then height = 32dip Else height = 50dip
   Else
    'tablets
    height = 90dip
   End If
   Activity.AddView(BannerAd, 0dip, 100%y - height, 100%x, height)
   BannerAd.LoadAd
   IAd.Initialize("iad", "ca-app-pub-3940256099942544/1033173712")
   IAd.LoadAd
End Sub

Sub Activity_Click
   If IAd.Ready Then IAd.Show
End Sub

Sub IAD_AdClosed
   IAd.LoadAd 'prepare a new ad
End Sub
These are test ids and they will show test ads.

V1.31 - Fixes an issue related to InMobi mediation ads.
V1.30 - Adds support for rewarded video ads: https://www.b4x.com/android/forum/threads/firebaseadmob-rewarded-video-ads.71430/
V1.20 - Adds support for native ads: https://www.b4x.com/android/forum/t...integrated-with-firebase-backend.67710/page-3
Has anyone else had a "Convert byte code - optimized dex. Error" when running this? I also get "Add android:targetSDKversion="19" to the manifest editor" in my Logs. I am not sure what my next steps should be to resolve this!
