How to find the version of library from Gradle Dependency? Android Studio

Issue

Question:

How do I find the version of libraries that are being used when my Gradle file mentions a dependency using the ‘+’ operator in the version number of the dependency?

Context

My build.gradle under app module reads like so:

dependencies {
  compile fileTree(dir: 'libs', include: ['*.jar'])
  compile 'com.google.android.gms:play-services:5.+'
}

What is the version of the play-services library that is being used here?

Solution

Look under .idea folder of your project

In the Project Pane on the left, browse to .idea/libraries

All the library dependencies that your project has have been mentioned, with each one getting its own xml file. You can see the version number included in the xml file title. The xml itself has the library file path.

snapshot of .idea/libraries

(OR) Use Gradle’s built in task to get dependencies
