    Hey Chris, thank you for your helpful videos. When I use the firebase and run the app I get that message

    This is the error:
    Terminating app due to uncaught exception 'com.firebase.core', reason: '[FIRApp configure] could not find a valid GoogleServices-Info.plist in your project. Please download one from https://console.firebase.google.com/.'

    I download the file and I still have the same error
    I use Xcode 8
