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 not copy, modify, distribute, sell, or lease any part of our Services or included software, nor may you reverse engineer or attempt to extract the source code of that software, unless laws prohibit those restrictions or you have our written permission.

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.
