It’s very important to know and control all aspects, such as all technical prerequisites, metadata, store settings, content policies, targeting, and more before you publish your mobile app to the Google Play Store. After doing some research I have some key features that will help as a complete guide for app owners and products who want to properly present their apps in front of users. Publishing your Android app to Google Play is quite exciting, but also a crucial element and depends entirely on the process of developing mobile apps. Therefore, I am discussing some guidelines that you will have to consider at the time of publication.
Technical Prerequisites – This point is very important because it is essential to know the technology that the play store supports or not. New applications must meet the Application Programming Interface (API) objective, it cannot be too low. If a user is using a device from a new version of Android that doesn’t live up to the API’s target level, backward compatibility behavior may apply. According to the research, I found that today the minimum APl level target is 29 for new applications, but it will increase to 30 or 31 in the coming days.
Check all the terms and policies – After doing a survey, I found that blockchain app development is shaking very high with popularity, but there are few restrictions on the game store for that. Therefore, you need to know all the content guidelines to start the application smoothly. Never develop apps with inappropriate content that isn’t supported by the Google Play Store. The UGC (user-generated content) must follow the guidelines created by the playback store.
Duplication: The first and important thing is to avoid the use of duplicate content or any copyrighted content from anywhere else, such as logos, images, content, or any other element. The Play Store team reviews and approves apps based on app content, so make sure you use the original content. Application owners need to make sure of this at the time of development.
How to publish
First, you need to create a new account or sign in with an existing account in google play console.
Next, select the name of the developed application title and also select the language.
Set up as much information as you want to provide to users with location, store, app category, pricing, catalog, and distribution.
After that, you need to follow the setup process and manage the APK files (Android app package).
Now, finally, you need to publish your app after fixing all the bugs and bugs.
Here your work is finished, the Google Console team will control your app. In this process, it takes almost 7 days or more. Until they show the application status as “pending publishing”.
After analyzing, the application will show three published, rejected, or suspended states.
If the application has not completed any steps or skipped some steps, it appears rejected, and in any case if it is against the guidelines, it displays the suspended status. One advantage you have is that you can easily unpublish your app at any time.
Pro tip: The app development process plays a critical role in publishing apps because you need to make sure that all guidelines at the time of development are successful or that you can’t publish your app.
