Firebase is a mobile platform that helps you quickly develop high-quality apps, grow your user base, and earn more money. Firebase consists of complementary features that you can mix and match to fit your needs, with Google Analytics for Firebase at the core. You can explore and integrate Firebase services in your app directly from Android Studio using the Assistant window shown in figure 1.

First, make sure you have added Google's Maven repository to your project configuration.

You can open and use the Assistant window in Android Studio by following these steps:

  1. Select Tools > Firebase to open the Assistant window.
  2. Click to expand one of the listed features.
  3. Click Get Started with Firebase Analytics to open a tutorial that connects you to Firebase and adds the necessary code to your app.

For more information about using Firebase services, see the Firebase documentation.
