Android Question Get AdvertisingID

Hi all.

I follow the instruction about how to set AdvertisingID from this URL and it works fine.

But only if I put this code into main activity as Erel said.

My question is - is it possible to move it to the class and call it from different places? For example I need it to be called from Starter service and then pass this AdvertisingID to the FirebaseMessages service as a ticket ID.

I tried to create a small project but when I compile it I'm getting an error

  location: class clsdeviceid
What am I doing wrong?

I've just tried the example code in the starter service and it works. You can call the starter service from other classes.
Erel, thanks for advice, it works. JUst want to know - what was wrong with my code?
