6 basic steps on Google Play Console to anchor your app on the Play Store

Step 1: APK generation and saving

Generate the APK of your app on the nandbox dashboard, and save it to later upload on the Play Console.

Generate your APK file, download and save it – to further upload on your Google Play Console.

Step 2: Create Application on the Play Console

Navigate to your Play Console, then start creating an application. On the left menu, go to All Applications then click Create Application.

Click on All Applications on the side-menu to start creating your app.

Step 3: Store listing

You will then land on the Store listing screen. Note that the info that your app will appear with on the Play Store depends on your input in the section Product Details.

That’s why you have to stick to the guidelines of the uploads to realize a successful publish. Check this Google article to get more information on how to do it.

Don’t forget to click Save Draft at the bottom right of your screen after you finish this step.

Step 4: App releases

Go to App Releases on the left menu. Here comes the role of the APK file you have saved in the first step. When going for the Production track, your app becomes ready to publish – without prior testing. So click on Manage. Then tap on Create Release once you get in, and choose to Continue to upload your nandbox-APK file.

Step 5: Content rating

Go to the Content rating on the left menu to follow the rating system of Google Play. It aims at delivering trustable ratings to your app’s users. Thus, true and presentable information while filling in the questionnaire is essential.

Step 6: Pricing & distribution

Pricing and distribution is the final basic step. There, you have to set your app’s pricing and select which countries you want your app to reach. Read the Android Content Guidelines before checking the boxes of the Consent section. The same you will have to do with the US export laws.

Click Ready to publish as a final action before launching your app on the Google Play Store.

Within a few hours, your app will take its place on the Play Store. To review its status and later manage all your apps, go to All Applications on your Google Play Console.
