Enable Cloud Services feature from Essential Kit Settings

If you are NOT planning to use Game Services along with Cloud Services, you still need to fill the Play Services Application Id entry in Game Services settings (and can disable it). This is because, on Android, Cloud services is internally dependent on Google play services.
