    Hello Challa, Koteswara Rao

    In .NET MAUI, you can still use the Xamarin.GooglePlayServices.Base NuGet package. This package provides .NET for Android (formerly Xamarin.Android) bindings for Google Play Services library com.google.android.gms:play-services-base.

    It's important to note that the target framework moniker (TFM) denotes the project as using .NET, in this case, .NET 8.0. Valid TFMs for equivalent Xamarin native projects are net8.0-android, net8.0-ios, net8.0-macos, and net8.0-tvos.

    Please check the latest documentation and forums for any recent changes or updates.
