I think if you have to ask, you already know the answer.

No. Anything you use from Google must be acknowledged with one of their icons and a link back to them. This comes under copy and modifying. They guard this very jealously. That is my experience of them as an android developer.

From the website https://www.google.com/policies/terms/

You may be able to use some Google services without public acknowledgement if you pay a licensing fee to Google.

However I do not think anyone would be seriously confused by a link back to Google.  Google is a well-known service provider.
