Upload to Google Play Store Impossible

  • Hi everyone,

    just wanted to upload an Android app to Google Play. I've done so before, so in principle I know what to take care of, but they changed the upload format.

    Each time I want to upload a signed release APK, I get warnings that the supposed format is a so-called 'android app bundle'. There is no way to dismiss these warnings.

    Sadly, creating android app bundles requires the use of Android studio.

    Has anyone else experienced this? Any workoraund? I hope this issue does not make publishing to Google Play impossible...

  • I'm developing for Android and haven't had any problems submitting signed-apk, both are supported at least from my control panel:

    It would be nice for Construct to support app bundles in future though.

  • I recently made a few tries and downloaded android studio, it is too complex for newbies and my installation of android studio has modules/plugins that are not linked or updated correctly (gradle, intellij...) giving me errors when I try to compile and export apks or app bundles.

    I am going to search for tutorials and solutions about these problems, and if I find a good workflow I will explain it here.

    At the other hand it seems there are some bugs in android studio 3.4 and 3.5, as I read in a forum this is a common error...

    "Error:Internal error: (java.lang.ClassNotFoundException) com.google.wireless.android.sdk.stats.IntellijIndexingStats$Index

    java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: com.google.wireless.android.sdk.stats.IntellijIndexingStats$Index..."

    It's just a warning and you can ignore it. It should not prevent you publishing an APK.

  • Now I understand the real problem: Google Play Console doesn't allow alpha testing wihtout completing all the required fields, and YES is possible to publish the app with the warnings.
