java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError:failed resolution of :Lorg/apache/http/ProtocolVersion
Update: This is no longer a bug or a workaround, it is required if your app targets API Level 28 (Android 9.0) or above and uses the Google Maps SDK for Android 16.0.0 or below (or if your app uses the Apache HTTP Legacy library). It is now included in the official docs. The public issue has been closed as intended behavior.
This is a bug on the Google Play Services side until it’s fixed, you should be able to workaround by adding this to your
AndroidManifest.xml inside the
<uses-library android:name="org.apache.http.legacy" android:required="false" />
