Submit new version of Android app

When you submit your app build to publish it on the Play Store, there is a possibility that your app may face rejection.

In this article, we discuss how you can re-submit your app in case your app submission has been rejected.

Make amends

  • You will receive clear reasons as to why your app has been rejected on the Play Store. This will also include suggestions as to what corrections can be made at your end for the app to be approved.
  • These details will be sent to you by email and can be found in your Play Console account as well.
  • Apply updates to make those corrections and create a new app build (APK or AAB file).
  • Download the AAB file for your Android app build.
