Hi, not sure if this is the right channel, but I'm struggling to figure out how to use the GoogleMap's MapEffect composable. My android studio doesn't know what it is when I load these libraries:
Copy code
implementation "$play_maps_version"
    implementation "$maps_compose_version"
    implementation "$maps_compose_version"
And after googling a bit, it looks like it belongs to this package:
Copy code
implementation "$maps_compose_version"
Although it doesn't seem to actually load when I use it, even though I don't have any gradle errors. I'm assuming that if it loaded correctly, I'd be able to use the experimental maps annotation
, but so far I haven't figured out the gradle-kung fu to get that to happen.
Never mind! I realized I just needed to iterate the version number of
Copy code
I was using 2.2.0 and the MapEffect composable was added in 2.3.0 🙂
