Manifest merger fai;ed

Getting this error(did update as suggested but it doesn’t seem to resolve the issue).

Manifest merger failed : uses-sdk:minSdkVersion 16 cannot be smaller than version 19 declared in library [com.smileidentity:smile-id-ui:1.0.16] C:\Users\XolaKetsiwe\.gradle\caches\transforms-3\c9aa9f2d86eb14b3c9b828d141bb79a1\transformed\jetified-smile-id-ui-1.0.16\AndroidManifest.xml as the library might be using APIs not available in 16
	Suggestion: use a compatible library with a minSdk of at most 16,
		or increase this project's minSdk version to at least 19,

As the error says. You are depending on a library (com.smileidentity:smile-id-ui:1.0.16) that declares it needs at least sdk version 19, but your project is configured with min sdk 16.

That is like trying to use a Java library that needs at least Java 17 in a project that is configured to use Java 11 and cannot work.

As the error still comes, you obviously did not “update as suggested”, or did it somehow wrong.

But as this is a highly Android specific question and has not really anything to do with Gradle, I suggest you ask in some Android community. Maybe someone else can help further here, but at least I am not into Android development. :slight_smile:
