Upload APK file for the first time. Need instructions.

edcal2edcal2 Member ✭✭✭

Instructions state signon to Goggle Play (Developer) Console and click Publish an Android App on Goggle Play. I can not find a Google Play (Developer) Console. I only find Goggle Play Console, and I can not fine Publish an Android App on Goggle Play Console. This is my first APK upload and I need help. I have attempted to help from Goggle with no success.

    This is the site.
    You need to pay only for registration about 20 euro. Then You create a project with your apk name, and you upload the file

    This is the link to acces the google play developer account:
    https://play.google.com/apps/publish/
    if you've payed the quote, which is 25 $USD i think, you should be able to access it.
    From there just click on the button "Create Application" which can be seen from Home.

    The first time an APK is submitted to Google Play (or if an early version of Xamarin.Android is used) the APK must be manually uploaded through the Google Play Developer Console. Check the tutorial which explains the steps required for this process.

    Thank you DimChris and albertoha94 and Javan I will follow your instructions. This has been killing me for several days. This is my first APK upload. Thanks again to everyone for your help.

    I am still having problems. Let me explain a little better. I have already paid the registration fee. I have already created the APK file.
    When I get into Goggle play Console I do not fine Publish an Android App on Google Play. That is my problem. I have click everything in the left pane Dashboard, App Release, Android Instant Apps Artifact library and all the possible clicks but I do not find a Publish an Android App on Google Play to click. That is my problems. How do I get to a page where I click Publish an Android App on Google Play so I can get to a page that will allow me to upload my first APK file. Am I on the incorrect Goggle Play Console?

    This may be due to an update to the Google Play Developer Console.

    Two questions:
    (1) Is there a Goggle play Console and also a Goggle play Developer Console? I can not fine a Developer version.
    (2) Can anyone get on Goggle play Console and find a Publish an Android App on Google Play to click. If so, please give me instructions on how to get to the page.

    Google Play Console is where you manage all you apps and APK's that you are going to publish.

    When I am in Goggle Play Console the only reference I see about uploading a APK is in DEVICE CATELOG. When I click UPLOAD A NEW APK the software switch to APP RELEASE which has no reference to uploading a APK. Please give me exact instructions on how I get to the page that will allow me to upload the APK file.
