What is Google Firebase and why does it not work in China?

Google Firebase is a platform that provides a variety of tools and services for mobile and web application development. It includes features such as real-time databases, user authentication, hosting, cloud functions, and more.

Some examples of Google Firebase features include:

Real-time Database: A cloud-hosted NoSQL database that allows developers to store and sync data across multiple clients in real-time.

Authentication: A user authentication system that supports email and password, phone numbers, and popular third-party providers like Google, Facebook, and more.

Cloud Functions: A serverless environment for running back-end code in response to events triggered by Firebase features and HTTP requests.

Hosting: A web hosting solution for deploying and serving web applications and static content.

Cloud Storage: A scalable and highly available object storage solution for storing and serving user-generated content like images and videos.

Remote Config: A cloud-based service for controlling the behavior and appearance of an app without requiring an app update.

Test Lab: A cloud-based service for testing Android and iOS apps on real devices and emulators.

Analytics: A tool for tracking app usage and user engagement, and gaining insights into how users interact with an app.

These are just a few of the tools and services provided by Google Firebase.

Firebase does not work in China. To date, it is neither accessible nor functional in China.
