Optional Google Advertising ID (Android only)

The Google Advertising ID is a user-specific, anonymous, unique, and resettable ID for advertising, provided by Google Play services. GAID gives users the power to reset their identifier, opt-out of interest-based ads within Google Play apps, and provides developers with a simple, standard system to continue to monetize their apps.

Passing the Google Advertising ID to Braze

The Google Advertising ID is not automatically collected by the Braze SDK and must be set manually via the Appboy.setGoogleAdvertisingId() method.
