Will there be Submission issues if app has Google Play Services library ?

Hi , We have an app that uses third party libraries that depend on Google Play Services library. There is a fallback logic if Google Play Services app is not found. We have tested the app on kindle devices and works fine. I have used the App Testing Service and did not get any warnings. What I would like to know is that, if app will be rejected while submitting to the Amazon Appstore since it has a google play services library?

Hello Jerin, Your app won't be rejected if it has Google Play Services if it can degrade gracefully in the absence of the Google Play Services app on the device. however there are a couple of things you may want to consider. If you are using any Google Play SDKs that require authorization against your app's certificate, please contact us at https://developer.amazon.com/help/contactus.html so that we can give you the certificate hashes required such that your app still functions when it goes through our publishing process. Also, you may want to look through our article, "Too Many Methods: How to Avoid Compile Errors on Submission" https://developer.amazon.com/public/community/post/Tx291UO6WP91P9Z/Too-Many-Methods-How-to-Avoid-Compile-Errors-on-Submission As the Google Play Services SDK has a lot of methods that count against your APK's classes.dex file limit.
