Making firebase storage public for reading and writing on android-ThrowExceptions

Exception or error:

I am new to firebase storage. Can anyone tell me how to make the storage files public for reading and writing?. The default code provided by firebase is given below. What changes should I make ?

service firebase.storage {
  match /b/image-view-b1cf5.appspot.com/o {
    match /{allPaths=**} {
      allow read, write: if request.auth != null;
    }
  }
}
How to solve:

The documentation explains that if no rule expression is provided, the rule evaluates to true:

service firebase.storage {
  match /b/image-view-b1cf5.appspot.com/o {
    match /{allPaths=**} {
      // Allow access by all users
      allow read, write;
    }
  }
}

###

FYI: if you want public read only.

service firebase.storage {
  match /b/image-view-b1cf5.appspot.com/o {
    match /{allPaths=**} {
        allow read;
        allow write: if request.auth != null;
    }
  }
} 

###

service firebase.storage {
  match /b/{bucket}/o {
    match /{allPaths=**} {
      allow read, write;
    }
  }
}

Just Removing

if request.auth != null;

service firebase.storage {
  match /b/image-view-b1cf5.appspot.com/o {
    match /{allPaths=**} {
      // Allow access by all users
      allow read, write;
    }
  }
}

Happy Coding

###

// Anyone can read or write to the bucket, even non-users of your app.
// Because it is shared with Google App Engine, this will also make
// files uploaded via GAE public.
service firebase.storage {
  match /b/{bucket}/o {
    match /{allPaths=**} {
      allow read, write;
    }
  }
}

Removing the authentication condition should work.
