Hi all,

Can anybody confirm that whether I require separate API keys for using Google Maps and GCM in a project. ie one API key for Google Maps and another one for GCM for the same project.

I have already created a Project and have a API key for Google Maps and it is working fine. When I check the Google API Manager, it looks like I have enabled GCM API too.

Unfortunately, when I try to send a GSM Message from an external app I get the following html from Google. ie Unauthorized, Error 401
