Publishing An App To Google Play Store

How to Publish and Android App to the App Store#

  1. In Android Studio select Build->generate signed apk...

  2. This will create a file called app-release-unaligned.apk in app/build/outputs/apk

You will need to zipalign:

android-sdk/build-tools/22.0.1/zipalign -f -v 4 <app-release-unaligned.apk> <app-release.apk>

Make sure Version is updated#

You need to update your versionCode and versionName

If you are using gradle you can set this in app/build.gradle instead of AndroidManifest.xml

defaultConfig {
        versionCode 6
        versionName "1.0.5"
