Implementation of Firebase Performance Monitoring

In this tutorial, you will learn how to implement Firebase Performance monitoring in your Android project.

What is Firebase Performance Monitoring

Firebase Performance Monitoring is a service that helps you to gain insight into the performance characteristics of your iOS, Android, and web apps.
You use the Performance Monitoring SDK to collect performance data from your app, then review and analyze that data in the Firebase console. Performance Monitoring helps you to understand where and when the performance of your app can be improved so that you can use that information to fix performance issues.

It is very important to have it in your app especially if you want your app to grow in the right direction, below are the benefits of it.

When you add the Performance Monitoring SDK, Firebase automatically starts collecting data for several common processes in your app thereby it does the following.
