Publishing your app to the Play Store is a relatively straightforward process and will help your app reach 2 billion active Android devices.

To publish your app on Android, you'll need to add an
app icon, a
package name and an app
version. To find the App settings, click on the App Icon on the top left.
For recommendations on your
app icon and
name, please see this guide.
Each Android app that is published to the Play Store has a unique
package name. Currently, you can enter this in the App (Bundle) ID field.
Before you download your app, make sure you set the appropriate Build and Version Number. Google Play requires each new version of your app to have a unique and sequentially higher Build and Version Number. You can also let Thunkable auto-increment (or automatically increase) the build and version numbers for you.
Next, create a new release. This is where you'll upload the latest version of your app (.apk)
To complete your Play Store listing, you will have to fill out a content rating questionnaire and set pricing and availability. In addition you will need to add a minimum of 4 design assets - two screenshots, a higher resolution icon (512 x 512 px) and a feature graphic (1024 x 500 px) that shows up on the Play Store app.
Congrats! You are now ready to submit to the Play Store.
