I am having some trouble integrating google maps with the Xamarin maps SDK, I have already contacted google on the matter but they said they can only help if it is part of the google maps SDK itself. The reason why I am using Xamarin.Maps over the google play service maps are because I am building this application to work cross-platform and I doubt that the google play services maps will work on both iOS and Android (Not building for Windows Phones).
The problem I am having is that I am getting the same authentication error every single time causing the maps to not display any of the data itself. I followed the guide on Xamarin.Forms Map Initialization but still have nothing.
I have checked the API key many times and even created new ones just encase I did the setup wrong on the google console end. As well as this I have also checked all my authentication information to the same degree, I am certain the data I have entered isn't wrong. Can anyone provide any insight to if I have entered the data in the wrong manner or if there is simply something deeper going on here!

Right now I am debugging on android so I just want to get it working there first
