Google Play Delayed Publishing?

Ideas and discussion about publishing and distributing your games

Post » Thu Feb 02, 2017 1:12 pm

Dear all,

I would like to finish my app but I need a Google Play Store URL for my game before I publish it. Is there a possibility to upload my game to Google Play and create a page about my game on Google Play, but without going public with the game?

Your store page URL will always be "https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=" followed by your app id. For example one of my apps has the ID "cats.dev1308.tanks" and therefore has the URL "https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=cats.dev1308.tanks"

If you need to have the store page set up you can try setting up a closed alpha or beta.

You can't publish an app or get public URL for your app, unless you don't add this things in your app.

1. You need to add a high-res icon. [English (United States) – en-US]
2. You need to add a feature graphic. [English (United States) – en-US]
3. You need to add at least 2 non-Android TV screenshots. [English (United States) – en-US]
4. You need to select a category.
5. You need to add a short description. [English (United States) – en-US]
6. You need to add a full description. [English (United States) – en-US]
7. You need to upload an APK for this application.
8. You need to target at least one country.
9. You need to enter a privacy policy URL.
10. You need to make your application free or set a price for it.
11. You need to declare whether or not your application contains ads.
12. Your app is missing a required content rating. Go to your app's Content Rating page and complete a rating questionnaire.

Have you seen the 7th point? It's necessary to upload apk, then you can publish the app and will get the URL.
