Everything work well in debug. This errror only in release when shrinkResources true and minifyEnabled true in build.gradle with tools:shrinkMode=“strict” in res/raw/keep.xml .
Remove tools:shrinkMode=“strict” will fix this. But i found that, in res/raw/ in apk file (or aab file) , file ios_emoji.conf has size = 0 byte. Add “strict” , it will have ~53KB .
Which Android Client SDK version?
