How do I get my latitude and longitude coordinate values of current location, which could be displayed in a text area or at least as a toast in my Android program in Android studio(Gmaps API of it) ?

Curious to know if you need device movement to calculate a set of distances to an AP given that you may not know the AP' full strength (0 metres) and therefore would need to perform at least two measurements at different distances to establish the drop off rate and from that calculate the AP location.

How to combine the FSPL and Google Places API to know the exact location within a multilevel building like mall?

You wouldn't need FSPL. If you use the getCurrentPlace() in the Places API, it will give you a list of places near you along with a likelihood that you are at those places. If you are in a Mall, it will detect lots of places near you, and by looking at the likelihood parameter you can tell which are closest.

Is FSPL used by Google Play Services Location provider by default in case when GPS is not available?

The Fused Location Provider which mashes up a bunch of things, like GPS, beacons, wifi etc. is used by Google Play services.

can anyone please explain how it gives location coordinates without any reference point to start with? is it pinging to access points and getting their locations first?

yes he mentioned that you need to get access points and calculate your location relative to them.

I love the Raspberry Pi, that's why I use it a lot — check out my Cloud.NEXT sessions where I used a Robot built on Pi to do trilateration… 🙂
