I do not understand how to modify firebase in order to work with the new b4a 8.4

I copy these sentences below to manifest editor what is next ...tutorial is not understood so please help us modify Firebase to make it work .

CreateResourceFromFile(Macro, FirebaseAnalytics.GooglePlayBase)
CreateResourceFromFile(Macro, FirebaseAnalytics.Firebase)
CreateResourceFromFile(Macro, FirebaseAnalytics.FirebaseAnalytics)
CreateResourceFromFile(Macro, FirebaseNotifications.FirebaseNotifications)

I do not understand how to change the old code !

Here is the error I get :

firebasemessaging_subscribetotopics
java.lang.NoSuchMethodError: No virtual method subscribeToTopic(Ljava/lang/String;)Lcom/google/android/gms/tasks/Task; in class Lcom/google/firebase/messaging/FirebaseMessaging; or its super classes (declaration of 'com.google.firebase.messaging.FirebaseMessaging' appears in /data/app/hs.scan.ticket.ro-2/base.apk)

This is my lines in the manifest editor with the new macros (B4A 8.3 and SDK 26):
B4X:
'************ Google Play Services Base ************
CreateResourceFromFile(Macro, FirebaseAnalytics.GooglePlayBase)
'************ Google Play Services Base (end) ************
'************ Firebase Base ************
CreateResourceFromFile(Macro, FirebaseAnalytics.Firebase)
'************ Firebase Base (end) ************
'************ Firebase Ads ************
CreateResourceFromFile(Macro, FirebaseAdMob.FirebaseAds)
'************ Firebase Ads (end) ************
'************ Firebase Analytics ************
CreateResourceFromFile(Macro, FirebaseAnalytics.FirebaseAnalytics)
'************ Firebase Analytics (end) ************
'************ Firebase Auth ************
CreateResourceFromFile(Macro, FirebaseAuth.FirebaseAuth)
'************ Firebase Auth (end) ************
It works to me.

I will start over with all details
Make sure you have updated the two internal libraries.
Remove everything related to google and Firebase from manifest. Leave the standard items and the Theme you defined...
Add the Snippets (onliner)
Try to compile.

Thank you for takeing patience with me ! I have modified the path to android SDK and solved the problem, updates to libraries did solve the problem as Erel said.
I do not see the previous crash so thanks good ...it works !

I needed to ask for my problem to be solved otherwise I would have been stocked forever
Thank you DonManfred, Erel for your support
