Using the SDK

While you are reading this section, one thing is certain: you don't need to configure the firebase SDK anymore, because we have already configured it in the previous section. We simply need to add the dependency now.

In the project-level build.gradle, inside buildscripts | dependencies, add the following line:

classpath 'com.google.firebase:firebase-plugins:1.1.5'

Now, open the app-level build.gradle and insert the following line:

apply plugin: 'com.google.firebase.firebase-perf'

After the plugin is configured, add the following line in the app-level build.gradle dependencies block:

implementation 'com.google.firebase:firebase-perf:16.1.0'

Recompile your app. Automatic traces and HTTP/S network requests are now monitored.
