    • Next up are the screenshots. You need to upload a minimum of 2 screenshots of your app. The easiest way to do this is by installing a screenshot app on your phone and then uploading them to your computer. Keep in mind that the minimum requirement for each side is 320 pixels and a maximum of 3840 pixels.

        • Hit the "Start" buttons and finish the sections one by one

        • If you have chosen the Android Conversion PLUS Google Play Ready package, a template for a Privacy Policy has been mailed to you. It is a Word document in which you need to replace the words "MyApp" with the name of your own app.

        • You need to upload this document and place it on your website or contact your Webmaster to do this for you.

        • Make sure you put the link to that webpage in the "Privacy Policy" section

        • If you are ready on this page, hit the "Pricing and Distribution" pane on the left

        • Select the correct button to state if your app is free or paid

        • In the "Countries" tab, you can select all the countries you want your app to be published in. If you only have a client base in the United States, just select 'United States" in the drop down menu.

        • On the bottom of the page, there are two boxes you need to check for Content Guidelines and US Export Laws

        • Before you review and rollout your release, make sure the store listing, content rating, and pricing and distribution sections of your app each have a green check mark next to them.

        • Once you’re sure you’ve filled out those details, select your app and navigate to ‘Release management’ — ‘App releases.’ Press ‘Edit release’ next to your desired release, and review it.

        • Next, click on ‘Review’ to be taken to the ‘Review and rollout release’ screen. Here, you can see if there are any issues or warnings you might have missed out on.

        • Finally, select ‘Confirm rollout.’ This will also publish your app to all users in your target countries on Google Play.

        Congratulations, you have just sent your first app to Google for reviewing!

        Please note that the review process might take up to a week or even longer (due to covid-19).
