I got an issue since I bumped the play-services version to v9.8.0. I notice that the method AdvertisingIdClient#getAdvertisingIdInfo sometimes returns null (i have not identified any pattern to reproduce this case yet).
Do you if this a new behavior of this API (The documentation is not clear whether this method may return null or not) or if this a bug i should report to play services developers ?
This is a breaking change for me because I use some sdk which use this method without checking the returned value nullity.
I’m seeing this too, but can’t find any useful links about it. If you use Android Studio to decompile the
getAdvertisingIdInfo method you can clearly see a path where it will return
null but the docs don’t see to think that is possible. I can’t find anywhere to report a bug, it’s probably safest to just update your code to check for
