I added firebase to my android birdcounter project and after following google's tutorial gradle tried building my project and threw a dex size too big error. Has anyone else had this problem? Does anyone know a solution?

Best answer

I followed a guide over at stack overflow that enabled multi-dex:
Simply put you add this to your app's gradle file:

 implementation 'com.android.support:multidex:1.0.3'

Then add this to the defaultConfig file:

multiDexEnabled true
