[Solved] What is com.google.android.gms.version?

I am working in a old project which has this snippet to use in google play service:

<meta-data android:name="com.google.android.gms.version"
    android:value="@integer/google_play_services_version" />

I couldn’t find any official documentation about this, I know however that is used in device location and I would like to know what is used for because I am getting an exception and I think it may be related:

[AppCertManager] IOException while requesting key:                                   
java.io.IOException: Invalid device key response.

Solution #1:

That is the Google Play Services Version Number.

This may help you with your error, though I’m not sure of the code that’s throwing it.
