Flutter Google Api Availability Plugin

pub package Build status codecov

A Flutter plugin to check the availability of Google Play services on the current device.


  • Check the availability of Google Play services (on Android only).


To use this plugin, add google_api_availability as a dependency in your pubspec.yaml file. For example:

  google_api_availability: ^3.0.2

NOTE: There's a known issue with integrating plugins that use Swift into a Flutter project created with the Objective-C template. See issue Flutter#16049 for help on integration.



To check the availability of Google Play services on the current device, you can use the checkGooglePlayServicesAvailability method. This could be helpful to provide a more friendly experience to users in case an user-action is required to enable support for Google Play services (More information can be found here).

import `package:google_api_availability/google_api_availability.dart`;

GooglePlayServicesAvailability availability = await GoogleApiAvailability.instance.checkGooglePlayServicesAvailability();

If you want to show a dialog by the Android system with more information and show a possible fix to the user you can do:

import `package:google_api_availability/google_api_availability.dart`;

GooglePlayServicesAvailability availability = await GoogleApiAvailability.instance.checkGooglePlayServicesAvailability(true);

Note that on iOS this will always return notAvailableOnPlatform!

See also the example project for a complete implementation.
