Do you want to publish your APP in the Play Store but you don't know where to start? Follow our updated step-by-step tutorial to learn how to upload an APP to the Play Store. Millions of users around the world await your release!

Google Play Store will not only give you visibility to its millions of users, but you will also be able to manage the sale of applications and advertising in it. To start operating and uploading your own APP to the Play Store, you will need to complete a series of very simple steps that will not take more than a few minutes. The first thing you are going to need is to create a developer account in the Play Store, but this is something that you will see better in the following steps. Do you already have your application ready? It is time to put it into operation and present it to the world by adding it to the great catalog of the Google Play Store.
Step 1
Before you begin, you'll need to create a Developer account on the Google Play Store.
It is a very simple process in which you simply have to enter the data that is requested in each step. Once done, you will need to authorize the Developer Distribution Agreement. Now you will only have to pay a one-time registration fee of $25.
Finally you must finalize your account information and you will be ready for the next step.
*Remember that to create a developer account you must be over 18 years old.
Step 2
Once you have your developer account, we will have to pay attention to the requirements to upload an APP to the Play Store. These requirements will be the following:

    - You will need the application package or in other words, the APK that you want to launch in the Play Store
    - Enter a brief description of the APP (max 80 characters)
    - A second description, this time longer in which to explain the APP (40 characters)
    - Prepare your APP icon using a 512x512 .png format
    - Screenshots of the APP (at least 2 and maximum 8), providing images that do not exceed 3480x3480 and in .png format
    - Add the function graphics since a good graphic attracts more users and downloads are increased
    - Finally, they will also ask us for a promotional/tutorial video that shows how to use the APP. The minimum duration will be 30 seconds and the maximum 2 minutes.
Step 3
With all of the above in place, you're ready to start uploading your app to the Play Store. Go to the "All Applications" section and once inside choose the "Create Application" option. Here begins the upload process and the first thing they will ask you is to choose the default language and give your APP a name, which will be the one that will be shown in the Play Store (don't worry about this because you can change it later) .
Step 4
The next step will be to complete the file presented by the Google Play Store and this is where you will have to capture most of the requirements that we talked about in step 2.
At this point we will have to name the product, in addition to adding both a short and long description. Here it is advisable to apply ASO (mobile SEO) and use many keywords associated with your product.
We will also have space to add graphic resources such as videos or photographs, choose the category, contact details, the privacy policy and some extra data necessary to complete the process.
Step 5
We are facing one of the most important points and that is that it is time to upload our APK file, which would be the source code of your application. Within the Play Console application you must access the "Version Management" option and within it click on "Application Versions".
In this step you will be able to choose between launching an internal test, a closed version, an open version or creating different versions of your APP. When you have done it, in the "Release management" section you will find the "Artifact library" option and that is where you will be able to see the list of your APKs and their status.
If you need more than one APK file for your APP to be compatible with all devices, you can upload several for the same Play Console application.
Step 6
The next step you need to complete is to fill out the content rating questionnaire. You will find this option within "Presence in Google Play Store" and once inside select "Content Classification".
You must enter an email and click on continue to select a category and start the questionnaire. Once done, click on "Save Draft" and then press the option "calculate the rating of the APP".
Pay close attention to this step as it is another of the most important because if an APP appears as Unrated, Play Store could automatically remove it. In short, this classification serves for users to identify offensive or less appropriate content in applications.
Step 7
It is time to configure the price and distribution of our APP. The applications in the Play Store can be free or paid, so you must be clear about which group yours will belong to. Of course, keep in mind that a paid application can be changed to free, but the reverse does not work.
If your APP will be classified as paid, you will also have to establish its price or rate.
At this point, we will also have the opportunity to select the countries and regions in which we are going to put our APP into circulation.
Step 8
The final step will be to send our APP for review since the process will not be immediate.
Before clicking on this option, review each of the previous steps and make sure that you have fulfilled everything. In the "Application versions" option, choose the version that we want to upload to the Play Store and click on "Review and Launch"
Make sure that the version does not have any bugs with the "Confirm Release" option. This will cause the Play Console platform to perform an automatic review, which can take up to 48 hours if this is your first time doing this process.
And this is how you will be able to put your APP into circulation on the Play Store platform, making it visible to millions of people around the world. Don't worry if Google Play Store rejects the upload, this happens very frequently. However, all you have to do is check the reasons for the rejection and find a solution, being able to send the request again.
