Name & Description of App

The information that appears on your Google Play Store app listing must be entered into your Play Console account. It contains information like the name of your app, a brief description, and a detailed description.

You’ll be required to add this information to your Play Console account’s Main Store Listing content. You can be prepared for this stage by writing your app’s name and description ahead of time.

The app name (label) is limited to 50 characters. The character restrictions for brief and detailed descriptions are 80 and 4000, respectively. You can use keywords to improve the ranking strength of your listing in each of these meta fields. You’ll have a fair chance of ranking well in Google Play search rankings if you have a good name and description.

Graphics & Design

Without graphics, a Google Play Store listing is incomplete. There are multiple that could create the desire in the eye of users like an app logo, a featured image at the top, and a collection of screenshots for the app that you are ready to list.

These pieces of art can boost your app listing with an aesthetic appeal. Many people decide whether or not to download an app based on the tone of the app listing.

Before submitting the app to the Google Play Store, you can prepare your artwork. The points below highlight the specific picture requirements for the graphic assets you must supply during app submission:

App Logo: High resolution (512 x 512 pixels) with a maximum file size of 1024 KB

Features graphics: The resolution is 1024 x 500 pixels. Google recommends developers to create their feature graphics relevant. Moreover, any text in the feature image that shows your performance on the Google Play Store should be avoided.

Screenshots: The minimum height is 320 pixels. 3840 px is the maximum height. You must also include a minimum of two screenshots. Anything that displays your performance on the Google Play Store should be eliminated.

Before you begin your app submission, make sure you have these three pieces ready. You can then do this step without breaking a sweat during submission.

Promotion Video

Google allows you to include a promotional video for your app on the listing screen. Before submitting your app for release, you can create a promotional video.

You must first publish a promo video to your YouTube channel before adding it to your Google Play listing. Here are some instructions from Google for the promotional video you should include in your app listing:

Include no content that indicates the success of your app placement on the Google Play Store.

  • YouTube URLs should not include time codes. Also, don’t use a shortened link; instead, use the entire YouTube URL.
  • Set the visibility of your video to open or unlisted.
  • The video should be as short as possible. The first 30 seconds of the video will be auto-played by the Play Store. As a result, it is preferable to deliver your message within that time.

Because of the additional effort required to create a good video, most app companies avoid releasing one. It is an excellent opportunity to set your app apart from the competition through effective video promotion.

URL privacy policy
