  1. Joshua Quick 2020-03-17 I think this issue is happening because the newest AdMob uses Firebase and it wants a google-services.json which defines the google_app_id. That is, both a Google App ID and an AdMob App ID are needed. The google-services.json can be downloaded from the Firebase website once you've configured your app there. Unfortunately, Titanium apps do not currently support a google-services.json file yet. The plan is to add support to Titanium 9.0.1. See: [TIMOB-27745] In the meantime, I think the only solution is to add the below to the app project. We need to verify that the below will work. If so, then update module's "example" project and "README.md". ./platform/android/res/values/values.xml
       <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
           <!-- Replace with App ID found in Firebase Console website under Project Settings. -->
           <string name="google_app_id" translatable="false">MY_APP_ID</string>
    I suspect the iOS example project might have the same problem too. We need to double check.

[INFO] ad received [INFO] DynamiteModule: Considering local module com.google.android.gms.ads.dynamite:0 and remote module com.google.android.gms.ads.dynamite:204204100 [INFO] DynamiteModule: Selected remote version of com.google.android.gms.ads.dynamite, version >= 204204100 [WARN] AdEventListener: (main) [0,10313] "ad_received" is deprecated. Use "load" instead. [INFO] Interstitial Ad loaded! [~smohammed], can we close this defect now.
