> Publishing only the game service doesn't make your game live.
thanks for the reply Andreas
I'm alpha testing only my apk, not game services. I'm having a problem logging in to google game (get an error box). So i asked this chat guy if the problem could be that i haven't published the game services yet, cause i was under the impression that if i do, along with the apk, it would make it public.
No, even if you release your game in beta / alpha it doesn't appear in the store (if you selected closed beta). The game can only be downloaded via a specific link.
Yes you need to release your game service or you need to set it up ready for testing (select if alpha / beta tester can test the game service).
Best is to configure the game service completely and to release it.
Keep your game in beta / alpha and release it as well. It will not be visible in the store if you have selected "Closed Beta / Alpha".
