When updating the SDK, you should re-import or copy the whole module contents, not just the AAR, to capture all changes for the new version.
If you have modified the module files, you may have to re-apply your changes or manually update those files.

  1. Update your app's build.gradle as follows:

     android {
        compileOptions {
            sourceCompatibility JavaVersion.VERSION_1_8
            targetCompatibility JavaVersion.VERSION_1_8
     dependencies {
        implementation project(":livesense")
  2. Use the License Key, APP ID, and APP SECRET to authenticate your application.
