Google Play Developer name change?

  • Greetings, anyone know if its possible once you publish apps to a particular dev name, that you can change it later and the apps still work.. and future updates using the same keystore signing works?

    I am referring to the public developer name that apps show.

  • Yes it is is the quick answer. I'm sure it's somewhere in the account settings but its been a while since I adjusted mine - I'll have a look around and see if my memory gets jogged. What you can't do is change your merchant account country or the keystore you use to update any apps you have already published (you could use multiple key stores but you then run the risk of confusion). If you want to change the login gmail account then you have to setup a second merchant account and then email their help from both stating that you want to swap, they will then refund one of the $25 fees. That's detailed in the play merchant FAQ.

  • In case you haven't found it, go to Google Play Developer Console, Select Settings on the left - that should take you to Account details. The top line is your Developer Name. Enjoy tweaking...!
