I'm trying to send a push to my newly registered Android device. When I send a push I get this status message: "API key is invalid. Try to change Browser Key with a Server Key and vice versa in Pushwoosh Android app configuration".

I have tried the suggested solution and even tried creating new ones and still get the same message. What to do?

I've tried different combinations and nothing works.
