If you are part of product team building apps, chances are that you must have faced delays in approval from Play store.
Here are a few very practical tips from Deepak Abbot.
So many devs facing 8-10 days delay with app updates at @GooglePlayDev While the situation there doesn’t seem like improving (till vaccine comes 🤫) here are some factors which may help some developers.
For faster updates upload on Mi store and it auto updates the app (that should cover 30-50% of your base). 100% tested and it works. MI store approves within hours (remembering old play store days 😭)
Earlier text changes or store experiments didnt affect the release, now even a typo fix will push you back in the queue. DON’T touch play console after uploading the build. This technically renders Play Store A/B experiments useless as google killed this useful ASO feature
If you are adding a new permission then write to @GooglePlayDev beforehand and save time on facing rejection and then again waiting for 10 days.
Unconfirmed hack: Avoid making your app suitable for kids if you can. Such apps take even longer to review @GooglePlayDev
Don’t even add an internal release while your app is in review. Supposedly a bug assumes that also as a release. Try sticking to old play store console while this bug gets fixed
